Nicolas Almagro Mops Up in Nice

Nicolas Almagro scraped past Victor Hanescu 6-7(5) 6-3 6-3 in Nice to pick up his third title of the year and tenth of his career.

He stormed through the South American claycourt season earlier this year, blew out in the big European events and now is back to winning ways in Nice. If that isn’t the definition of the clay court specialist, then I don’t know what is.

Still, it has been a very good year for Nicolas Almagro thus far, and he has been rewarded with a generous draw at Roland Garros with an injured Melzer and unconvincing Murray the biggest names in his section. In other words, if he is to ever have a big run at a Grand Slam, it will be sometime over the next two weeks.
