Igor had the match in the bag so many times. Also lead 4-1 in the 5th. Had match points in the tiebreaker.

You know it's a grand slam first week when everytime you look at a scoreboard you catch Almagro mugging it out in a five setter on some outside court.

What a gladiator Almagro is. Both played an awful tie break, but throughout the match the linesman were wrong for a majority of Almagro's balls they called out.

Almagro is one of the biggest fighters, hope that the people here finally acknowledge that...

WOW.. seems like all the sets were really close. At least Almagro came out as the winner in the end:yeah:

Battle of the noses - hell yeah! Awful mugathon at times but very entertaining, hilarious claycourt grunting. Almagro broke down Andreev's forehand in the fifth and won deservedly.

It's so funny because it's true.

Well done Almagro. Good chance to make another 4th round here as he plays Ljubicic next.

So true.

Yeah, at some point I thought Almagro was about to eat his racket.

Hopefully Almagro has a sponsorship lined up with a tissue company. I couldn't tell if the balls were in or not at the match, I thought most of them were probably correct calls and Almagro was up to his usual shenanigans but it seems he may have had a case. But someone should tell him when he blows up at the linespeople for running into them that it tends to happen when you play a mile behind the baseline.

Great to see this live, all kinds of awesome. Andreev thinks slice is what you get when you eat a pizza.

Got to give credit to Almagro. Huge fighter and somehow manages to win these matches.
All the hate against him on here is unwarranted, he's not a bad player and isn't an arsehole like Roddick or Koellerer.
Also, he's one of only 3 Spanish players who try their best against Nadal, the others being Ferrer and Montanes (though Montanes usually never has a chance anyway :o)

Almagro has huge balls and it shows.

You're not wrong there - the only problem is that they're on his head.
