Nicolás Almagro Sánchez Rolle from Murcia gets to the top 10 for the first time ever

I think he will. Right now he's ranked 13th and this week he's won two matches in Bs. As. where he defended just a first round loss. He probably won't get into the top 10 after this tournament, though, but I think he'll manage to do it eventually this year.

he'd defending a lot of points in IW and Miami so it'll be tough for him.

He should gain quite a few at MC and Rome though.

that's what i thought as well. MC and Rome, where he only defends seconds rounds, are big chances for him.

looking at the tournaments he played last year, two things grabbed my attention:

1- too many

2- too much clay. he's not that much of a mug on hardcourts so he should dare to make the jump in order to become a better hardcourt player in the long run, imo... even nadal realized this a long time ago and i actually think mugro's agressive playing style is more suited for hardcourts.

haven't checked his schedule for the present year but given his decision to play in south america, i doubt the two points above are likely to change.

Sapeod

He definitely will. He's one of the best players on clay, so he'll gain many points on there. He is getting better and better too. He'll do great on non-clay tournaments too. If he keeps his consistency against lower ranked players going then he'll definitely reach the top 10. He'll be around #7 by the end of the year, I think. He's better than Berdych, Melzer, Roddick & Youzhny, who are in his way....he will overtake them, I think. Can't see him overtaking Ferrer or the Big 5.

Almagro is a far more well-rounded player than the all-forehand Verdasco, so I could see him breaking in with a strong European clay season.

If he gets the right draw at Roland Garros a semifinal run wouldn't be out of the question.

Prolly the best active player not to have been top 10 at some point. Needs to step it up at big events. Looking at lower end of the top 10 I think there will be room this year.

tribalfusion

Very underrated player especially here on MTF (usually totally ignored elsewhere rather than underrated).

As was mentioned, not the best mover for certain but certainly has some strong strokes which work on all surfaces more than most.

abraxas21
02-18-2011, 07:07 AM
Almagro has already got three ATP 250 wins in his Ranking from Gstaad Bstaad and Costa de Sauipe.

That means if he wins this week he gains ZERO points

In the ATP 500 series he only has 90 to defend from Acapulco

So he would be better off for his Ranking by doing better NEXT week

good point

he should have skipped Bs.As. after winning in Brazil. That way he would have prepared himself better for Mexico. If there are no points to win here, what's the motivation? money? winning the tournament?

As things stand now, he'll get to Acapulco tired after playing 7-8 or more matches in South America for the past 2 weeks.

Dream ATP top 10:

1. Nadull
2. Mugdasco
3. Almugro
4. Lopez
5. Berdych
6-10: Other mugs who bend over for Nadull including Fakervic, Mugray, Mugfils, Clownga, etc

Only thing preventing it is the hardwork of the players who aren't total mugs and Federer doing all he can to keep the ATP somewhat in check. Almugro has a nice backhand but he is a captain at least of the Nadull fanclub and him getting to the top 10 would serve the purposes of the ATP nicely. Let's hope that doesn't happen.

i consider fiasco a bigger pocahontas fanboy. hey, mugro ALMOST beat nadal once ;)
and he was the player who troubled nadull the most in RG last year. he's still not likely to beat him of course but i much prefer him to play nadal over fiasco or boredo. besides, i kind of like mugro's game. keeps it agressive and has a pretty backhand. he doesn't like to move much on the court and that's his main problem, though.

murray has beaten nadal quite a few times btw

Almagro can be top 10 as any actual top 20 player, but his match record against top 10 is atrocious, and he is really bad on HC, i'm not even sure he could win anything on HC.

I agree, Fiasco being in the top 10 for over a year straight is probably the biggest stat people will look back on to prove this is a mug era, even over Nadull winning the career GS and the variety of clowns who have been in the top 10 over the last decade.

Anyone who is havig a selective memory of Almugro, go watch his match against Gineprick at the USO. One of the worst matches of all time.

Mugray had potential but he's squandered it all away, now holding the record for biggest loser in slam finals (9 sets lost/0 won) while worshiping Nadull in all of his interviews. He's done and dusted I'm afraid.

Pathetic displays by Verdasco everytime he faces Nadal. Almagro tries his hardest against Nadal (except for RG 2008, that was hilariously bad).

Also, Almagro is more consistent...and doesn't lose early as much as Verdasco. Hopefully, Almagro ends up above him in the rankings, would be good for tennis.

Almagro is worse than Verdasco? I'd say he pretty much isn't atm, wouldn't you? 7 match winning streak, 4th round at Aussie Open, title & semi-final before Aussie Open. Verdasco....one final, 1st round loss, 4th round at Aussie. Almagro is way ahead in the race too.

Verdasco? Pfff....

1. Choking abilites: 1-0 to Verdasco.
2. Mugness: 2-0 to Verdasco.
3. Being Nadal's toy: 3-0 to Verdasco.

Almagro has given Nadal tight matches in the past (RG 08 is pretty much the only one were he got destroyed). Verdasco gets destroyed every single time and doesn't try to win at all (Aussie Open 09 being the only exception, but that was a fluke...). After his win in Barcelona (last year) Verdasco said something like: "maybe I can come back and defend the title next year, if Nadal doesn't play". What kind of attitude is that, he's a horrible player in every way....

Almagro >>>>> Verdasco.

Robredo is also better than Verdasco and always will be: better slam record, better consistency, higher career high...just a better player.

Makes sense that in the weakest era in the history of the game a player like Mugro hits the top 10

All these people complaining about weak eras should be forced to have Almagro drill backhands at their balls lol

Dark days. If Mugro and Fish manage to be in top 10 at the same time, the universe will simply implode.

Just wait for Troicki, he's almost there :cool:

Anybody entering the top-10 is well desrved by tautology the way rankings are derived.

*thumbs up*

He's a lot more deserving than some of the players we've had in the top 10 recently.

It's always nice seeing a player with potential getting his head in order a bit and posting a few more consistent results (even if he's still kinda prone to flaking out at times). Hopefully he can make the 1/4s of RG at least =)

Fish made top 10 this week.

No. Fish is in top 10 in this week and Almagro will be #10 instead of Fish. Fish will be #11.

Just wait for Troicki, he's almost there :cool:

Don't scare me. ;)

Yes, it means we're saved for now ;) Both would an overload and the universe would promptly collapse

New weak era?

This the same weak era that has begun in the early 2000s.

Weak era? Take a look at 1996-1998, nostalgiatard.

Really, I don't get this guy. Why watch tennis at all or post in a tennis forum when he hates the game? I don't think I've ever read anything from him that wasn't a one line sentence about the death of tennis in this mug era. How many more times we will have to hear it before we die of boredom? :retard:

This will be the true end if this happens. At least Almagro has an outstanding backhand.

Funny, cause Troicki actually has a great double handed bh.;)

It's what happens when all courts play like slow-medium HC. You get guys that play well on it well above their potential in the rankings.

That, and the Top30 has been horrendous this year.

You don't have to be outstanding to be in the top16.

The top 3 in men's tennis right now have 30.000 ranking points accumulated. Speaks a lot of the guys beneath them.

As a fan:

For me he is only Top 10 on clay.
But because he play clay court tournaments for 7 or 8 months, the logical consequence is that he is in top 10.

But over all, he is a player for the spots 13-18.

His loss against Melzer in Monte Carlo was ridiculous and not Top 10 worthy.

I think, he is capable of reaching the Top 10 and play Top 10 tennis but he has to improve his game and his mental strength.

How can someone play 8 months on clay, when clay season extends for only 3 months?
