Sao Paulo QF: Almagro clays his way past Charly 'Panther' Berlocq 6-3, 6-2

Pretty similar gamestyles tbh and some nice putaways/rifled single handers by Charly who's always nice to watch (epic effort in some points also) :yeah: but Almagro is obviously the superior dirtballer

Comfortable win for Nico, he played well. :)

Vamos Nico!

This is Nicolas' favourite time of the year. Nice win. Hopefully, he wins the title here and has a brilliant claycourt swing. Keep owning on clay, Nicolas!

Assuming Almagro continues playing well I'm looking forward to some great Ferrer vs Almagro finals the coming weeks.

The Panther's grunts don't sound as sexy with a roof on. :(

Nico is always strong on South American soil. He should bring that to Europe, except to his SF at Madrid, and both QF in RG he has never done well.

Astonished by the lack of hate in this thread. MTF coming to like Almagro? :eek:

Berdych doing some good.

He has a nice game, and he hasn't done any gamesmanship tactics in quite a while (berdych incident was not his fault imo). As long as he doesn't call medical time-outs when his opponent is about to serve it out, he's a tolerable fellow.

Almagro if he was better looking would have got away with the antics a lot more than he has.

Pantera having an excellent start to the season.

Congrats MTF, the first Almagro thread I've seen that is over a page with on NA hate! Even surviving some renowned pessimists.

I like the way Almagro looks, but I place a high weight on skin for some reason.
