16 aces on clay, no BPs faced. Impressive. Hope he's gonna have even better claycourt season than last year

It can be hoped that he will be a force in the second week of RG which was expected last year but not delivered.

Almagro looking impressive again in the clay season, one to watch & avoid if your a player.

Hajek has been demolished again. What a surprise. :rolleyes:

Almagro could definately be a major force this year but he'll have to play more consistently than he did in South America. Potentially, he's a top 5 dirt baller.

He's defending champion here so he needs a good week - and lets hope 12 months on he makes more of a general impact on the clay - QFs to Federer in Rome was his best showing in an otherwise pretty low-key season last year, and losing to Blake at RG - oh dear.

anyone who draws hajek can expect a result like this.

if almagro sorted his attitude out a bit more he can really be on of the great clay players and he would be more liked as well

16 aces in 7 service games (2.28 aces per game) - that's impressive :yeah:
The Pim-Pim's record of 51 aces = 2.21 aces per game :D

He engaged in a macho competition with Blake to prove that he can outhit him, then deservedly lost. It is a question of maturing for him, he can certainly be dangerous for everybody if he becomes more mature.

Hajek...? Who?!

Haha. Only joking. Darn, I wish the scoreline was the other way around. I hate this Almagro punk. Fingers crossed for early losses in MC, Rome, Hamburg and RG.

Not that low-key considering he climbed almost 40 ranking spots in the clay season last year.

Exactly what I was thinking, He could be very,very dangerous at roland garros, especially as an unseeded floater. Wouldnt federer and nadal like to avoid this guy.
