Default Indian Wells R3: Almagro def. Giraldo 4-6 6-2 7-6 (2)

Tough match but too bad it ended with Giraldo playing an absolute stinker of a TB.

El Cabezon didn't do anything too stupid, the classic over the top celebration.

Almugro acting like a gorilla out there when all he did was push in the tb Pretty annoyed at Santi out there, he shows time and time again that he has the game to be scary good if he just had a brain

Almagro's reaction so over the top, I love it.

And yes, his girlfriend is amazing

Giraldo improved lately but he is useless in tight situations anyway. Some bad habits never changes. In the final tie-break he was done basically after the first point in which Almagro didn't do anything except pushing everything. Before a final set tie-break Giraldo's chance of winning it are around 20-30 %.

I love Almagro's overemotion. Tennis needs more of that.
Shockingly decent match other than terrible Almagro returning (he won 90% of neutral rallies, served great, but that service line flat return is a disaster)
And yes, hot gf.

Sounds like two good reasons why that guy is hated that much.

Haha, nice to see El Cabezon is winning off the court as well.

Do they know how to pronounce correctly? Giraldo is constantly pronounced incorrectly by umpires and commentators, with "French manner" instead of the Spanish one
