Nicolas Almagro, another brilliant Spanish tennis player who is often over looked for the Davis Cup team, is just one win away from entering the top ten for the first time. Nico has had a great clay court season so far winning Costa do Sauipe and Beunos Aires and was also a runner up in Acapulco.
Nico is currently ranked 11.
Another great Spaniard is happy to be on the clay. Juan Carlos Ferrero is returning to play after dealing with knee and wrist injuries and is just happy to be back on the court and to “finish the match without injuries, as it is still early in the day to set higher objectives. For now, staying injury-free is the most important thing.
I have to gain back my confidence. It’s not that I have to start from zero, but I never suffered from such a severe injury. I want to keep competing on the highest level for at least two or three more years.”
