milos does not have the movement to challenge the top guns on clay.
 
his game is most ideally suited for hard courts but he needs to play a few clay events a year to improve his ground game.
 
so he is doing the best he can.

Haven't been able to watch any tennis lately. So Almagro had a respectable loss to Rafa, at least on paper. In college football and basketball, this would be considered a quality loss and his ranking would have gone up.

Fran won Marakech. Impressive considering the fact that she lost the first 10 or 11 finals she was in, her age, and the downward tragectory of her career.

surprise, surprise  :whistle:. Babs is gonna hate me but Almagro and all other Spanish players are  clueless when they play against their Clay Emperor Nadal. They just love to bend over and they enjoy when Rafa ... oh well, I won't use any sexual 'metaphor' you you get the idea  :whistle:

Congrats Rafa for yet another title since his return. Madrid should be interesting.

Not really. He came out firing and got to a 3-0 lead, but after that, it was all Nadal.

Rafa is the FIRST to qualify for WTF this year! :D

Nadal's defense was insane in that final. He is getting fitter.

Good to see you back, Dallas, and hope you're much recovered.   :)

Congratulations to Nadal for winning his 8th Barcelona title.
Carpe Diem
