Mind you, I do like Kyrg's big game, he wastes no shots at all.

Almagro is a funny player.
He can serve and strike the ball so well yet dead scared to step into court and actually play the game with a bit of heart.

He certainly has talent but is a bit emotional and loses his temper too easily. Plus he has not got quick hands. key to bring many balls back when not ideally placed, hence poor at returning. So a good FH and BH (and sometimes a good serve) but poor mouvement and poor everything else.

Yet....wins the second set against a puzzled Djoko.

Now that I read this properly, this is such a good description of a player, any player!
Like an x-ray: talent, hands (and how it affects other things), movement, emotions...

He reminds me a lot Tony Drago the snooker player. Talented but as soon as he was building higher breaks got carried away by his own talent, and the crowd cheering and it often ended up by an easy careless mistake costing him frame and match.

If a player like Almagro had the same will power, discipline and emotionally stable as Djoko and Nadal, it would be a very different story ..but at te same time he probably would not be as skilled.

It's much easier to be hard working when that's all you have.

Yes, talent is only good in an athletic body and clever head...looks easy but so rare to find.

Just look at Nishi...he's got the talent to end all talents but not much heart, and not a 6ft 1 body.

Imagine Federer with those Japanese legs!

I think there are only two he never won. MC and Rome. Had a few occasions though as he had at least 3 finals in each, I think? Nadal has also two : Miami he never won but had a few finals on and Shanghai, where he had one final there. Djokovic only has Cinci he never won...

Federer had even championship point in Rome! and was so close in MC versus Stan last year.

But frankly it doesn't really matter.

Nadal looked in great form though.

Magnificent, flairful, courageous Fognini takes the first set against Dimitrov in the TB (saving 3 set points).

Tennis spring in Europe doesn't get better than wtching him play on clay in front of his warm and passionate home crowd.

There is something lovely and special about winning your home tournament.

Andy Murray managed to win both Wimbledon and Olympic gold in front of his crowd.

Roger has his Basel where he once used to be a ball-boy. He orders pizzas for them now.

Poor Nole had to buy and carve out his own tournament in order to have the pleasure but he did. And switch from Wilson to Head in order to be able to afford it... Cry

Nadal has Barcelona, Madrid...

How much French players would love to win Roland Garros!
Still, even they have smaller tournaments and win them from time to time...

But imagine, oooooh imagine how wonderful and magical it would be for Fabio Fognini to win Rome!
Imagine the collective energy of love in that stadium...imagine the tennis he'd play, the few extra inches of height he'd gain walking to the trophy, the little invisible wings he'd grow in his heart.....

Seppi was a  local hero three days a few years ago...

Go Fabio!!!!  diva

So Carlos Bernardes the referee was not welcome in Madrid (where he was nowhere to be seen) but back in Rome where Nadal has, it seems, less influence. However Carlos has yet to referee Nadal since their altercation in mid Feb.

If no-one can beat the ball muscling players, then I want the ball muscling players to fight against each other. I would hate a no hope Fognini facing any Road runner in the final. In the same way I supported Djoko to get nadal, I want Murray to be part of the mix.

Well, this was what Nole needed to shake the rust off...plenty of baseline hitting against pace.

Nishi tomorrow.

After watching him bs  Troicki, I had my doubts confirmed about Nishi: he gets really nervous if a player stand up to him.
That's. why Murray was able to beat him so convincingly last week.

I have no recollection of how Nole lost to him in USO last year.
He must've been extremely tired.

I think Nishi is the anti djko like Djko is the anti nadal. He takes the ball earlier and dicates.

Federer starting at 2pm and Nadal at 9pm! Cool Rome is trying to help Roger....as they have helped Nadal.

]Yes...except that Nishi doesn't have much heart. But it's good to have him around. No grunting and no muscling is always welcome.

I am tired of Federer-Berdych match-up. I just hope Fed gets on with it and does not start fading in the second set.
I didn't watch him against Anderson today, but that would've been good preparation.
The other matches...equally uninspiring.
Hopefully Stan will play well. He hit himself into some good form/tennis against Thiem today.
Nishi-Nole could be nice on clay.

But all in all...as my dream died with Fognini...only my ghost will be present till the end of the tournament...

It was a wonderful match and I am so sad he lost it. The crowd was equally beautiful.
It was all like watching a sunset....

OK, here's some loud thinking....stream of counsciousness kind of thing...so...Fed is fresh. Fact.
He is playing the first slot and it's against Berd. It should not be a long match.
Fed should win and still be fresh enough for tomorrow.

Nadal...moving very well in Rome. Ball-striking...not sure...against Nole not enough...against Stan - enough...but what if Stanimal kind of suddenly snaps out of hybernation? He did have moments of pride yesterday...you never know...but on paper this is Nadal's to lose. Fact.
So...a semi-fresh, fakely confident Nadal (fakely coming from the fact he is playing raw SBH-ing Federer....)
Mmmmm....mmmm.....mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....again I'm having to delve into my dreaming well here!

Yes I'd like to see it. I know that will give Nadal a boost of confidence. But I woudl still like to see how Fed plays him then.

Nadal is going to obliterate Stan....sadly.
