Re: Who is closer to reaching a semifinal in a Grand Slam? Almagro or Tipsarevic?
None of them is likely to beat a top 4 player in the QF, but Tipsy can beat Ferrer, Berdych or even Tsonga in R4 to put himself in a position to try.
Almagro has no chance anywhere against any of Del Potro, Tsonga, Berdych or Ferrer. Even Tsonga on clay owns him H2H because Almagro is simply incapable of beating top players. Tipsy, on the other hand, always has a decent chance of reaching QF unless he draws Del Potro in R4.
