Re: Australian Open 2009
Not only with the prospect of the next rounds, he'll need to keep the match as short as possible imo, his condition really is suspect (I don't think he's faking because it was the same in Doha already, he was struggling physically in the 3rd set against Roddick). So if it's a long match, it will give a big advantage to Almagro.
I saw Almagro's match against Muller at the USO last year and I didn't find him that bad on HC - but still, Gaël should win. He's the big favourite for the bookies.
