Monaco is closing in on top 10. He's fought well this week to get to the final.

Almagro had *4-2 in the 3rd set, but faded when Monaco had some tactical changes :tape:

:o Stebe had him on the ropes in the 1st round and now Mugnaco is in the final... We will see if he has enough left in the tank for tomorrow after two exhausting weeks with many long matches.

Pico fought like a dog to get this one.

Almagro up a break twice in the final set at 3-1 and 4-2, but Monaco just refused to lose. Playing exceptional defense when needed, Rafa would be proud, forcing Almagro to hit closer to the lines, and Mugro missed more than he made. Solid match overall I thought, and a great reaction at the end from Monaco, really meant a lot to him.

If Monaco wins tommorrow he is in top 10 for the first time. If he loose and Isner doesn't win Atlanta Monaco is in top 10, too.

Monaco is "kinda-injured" (i can't believe I watched this match).

300 points it's pretty cool Pico, don't injure yourself again.

Almagro beat Almagro should be a better title of the thread. Monaco just kept the ball in play and let Mugro beat himself.

Monaco had an injury treatment on a huge blister but just wouldn't get away. Great fighting spirit!

Monaco outplayed Almagro in last few games with relentless agression and depth in his shots, it was forced errors as opposed to unforced errors.

I don't think so, if he wains he's no11, passes Almagro, if he loses, he's no12

rats like monaco discrediting tennis on the highest level. mostly or just due to clay this scumbag has been in top 20 for years. when he faces nadal he is winning a gem per set, i don't say or expect from him to beat nadal but if you are among 10 best clay courters for years and you aren't capable for any kind of effort you don't deserve anything you won . the worst kind of players, beating weaker opponents day in and day out but having upset ability 0% . Should be banned from ATP. disgusting

Nope if wins his no. 10, however if Isner wins in Atlanta he will be pushed back to no. 11. He will need Isner to lose before the final. Pico has 2240 it will become 2495 for reaching the final and 2695 if he wins, his 300 replaces his 45 from last year's 2nd round. Isner has 2620 his 18th tournament is 150 points, so he only gains if he wins the title.

1,5 set nothing wrong, easy for Almagro. But he got broken and suddenly couldn't serve anymore.
Terrible serving in the third set, only held once. 4-2 up, 4-3 bp.
But he had a good week considering his hurt shoulder. Too bad he couldn't get to the final.

If juan didn't get injured during the clay season he would already be top 10.

disgusting result

mugnaco should be selling tomatoes in buenos aires instead of playing the ATP tour. the sooner he loses, the less the sport suffers.

This. And to be honest, it's a bit worrying. Nothing against Pico but he has no weapons. He's not a top 10 player - just like Tipsy being there seems wrong. These guys struggle to win 500s let alone challenge the big boys. The field has been really poor this year. Beyond the true top 6/7 the rest have just been very very mediocre. Telling that Haas could end up winning his 2nd title today and Roddick is contending for his 2nd title of the year too... What the hell is wrong with Simon, Gasquet, Nishikori, Raonic - the guys who have the game to challenge top players - Simon's beaten Fed and Nadal; Gasquet's beaten Fed etc. They're all just pathetic these days.

The top guys would be superior no matter what but beyond Tsonga, Berdych, Del Po etc. there aren't any who are mentally sound and play with a solid strategy and determination all year. Pico's consistency this year is getting him to the top 10 - shame that some of that talent out there - Gulbis, Dimitrov etc. are just wasting it...
