Almagro has won at least 1 clay title each year for 6 years!

Match stats attached. Almagro didn't face break point all match.

Didn't like Dolgo's performance, too defensive today.

Amazing consistency this Almagro.

Good experience for Dolgo in his first final :)

Kid did ok but Nico played smart aggressive tennis. Agree Dolgo was way to passive. Nico dictated play the entire match.

Dolgo let nerves get the better of him I think, that and possibly some ridiculously bad prematch tactical plan, so so so passive.

The only ones he has lost have been to Ferrer (one in a final set tiebreaker).

Mugro very good first set, did nothing particularly good in 2nd. Expected raise of level in the tiebreak though.

Almagro is too good on clay, that's that.

Dolgopolov played ok, but even if he was playing very very well, he's not good enough to beat Almagro on clay.

Good result this week, though.

Dolgo is definetely good enough on clay to beat Almagro IMO. But not playing the way he did today.

Good for the game, Dolgo belongs on the wta tour not the atp tour. Almagro is a different player this year. more motivated, ore determined and more patient and it is showing. He will be a MAJOR factor during the clay season this year whether people like or not.Nice to see him take the title here, he was the best player in Brazil this week.

Full story please? I missed that one.

Almagro simply has more firepower than Dolgo so the match was always going to be on his racquet. Dolgo needs to be more aggressive on clay to beat the top guns.

Almagro is as good as they come on the dirt. Extremely consistent, too bad he can't translate it to other surfaces.

When it comes to the clay, the only players who I would take over him are Nadal,Federer,Djokovic,Ferrer, and Soderling.

I'm more inclined to say, too bad he can't translate it to big clay events. He still hasn't reached the Roland Garros semis or a Masters final. I think with a decent draw he could just that this European clay court season.

02-13-2011, 09:16 AM
this is what i meant when someone came up with his clay stats and confronted saying dolgopolov is better on clay.......his present game suits hardcourts more than clay.......on clay, strengths in his present game are somewhat negated.......

there are no short cuts on clay, you must have the heaviness to hit the opponent out of the court......

Pirata.

And what a chance he had last year, won the first set against Rafa in the Madrid semis and forced two tiebreak at RG. Of course, Rafa being Rafa and Mugro being Mugro...

I actually feel Almagro is almost as good on Hardcourts now as he continues to improve there. back to back Ao 4th rounds and a semi in Auckland prove my point.

Poor Dolgo, Almagro is a "250" monster though, so there's nothing to be ashamed of. I'm pretty sure Olek will be a threat in the clay court swing.

Wrong.

A loss to anyone out of the top 20 is worse than losing to Almagro.
