Default Almagro's underrated technique

Hi all

I wrote a small piece about Nico and his sexy one handed backhand which I hope some of you will enjoy

http://tennisniche.wordpress.com/201...o-vs-wawrinka/

Having read MTF for some years, I've always found it bizarre that Nico receives so much criticism on these boards. Personality aside (I personally think there are many other top 100 players who are more dislikeable than him), he has one of the most beautiful games on the tour:
  • Beautiful, flowing single handed backhand
  • Powerful forehand with great racket head speed
  • Effortless serve which he can either hit with heat up the middle or kick out wide
  • Mediocre athlete and defender, meaning he relies a lot on shotmaking

Yet he seems to receive almost no attention for his great baseline game.. even this forum is quite empty for a player who has been top 10 not long ago.

I tried to find the right topic for this to go in but couldn't see any threads just about Nico articles (mods, please move if this does exist!)
