David Ferrer continues his great run of form this season by progressing to the Barcelona finals where he will play Rafael Nadal, again, for the title. Ferrer had a more difficult semi than his opponent who had to battle past Nicolas Almagro, eventually winning 6-3, 6-4. Nico has also had a great season and as a result of his results in Barcelona will break into the top ten for the first time in his career.
This will be Ferrer’s third final at the Barcelona tournament – he has never won the tournament. Read more
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. Read more

I know I’m slightly late with this one but the player of the month of February has to be Nicolas Almagro. After winning in Buenos Aires and Brasil, the Spaniard came up one match short for the Golden Swing, losing the final of Acapulco to David Ferrer.
His brilliant play has then been somehow over-looked for the Spanish Davis Cup team because of the abundance of high quality, highly ranked, consistent Spanish players and so I can not over look him as player of the month.
The best season start to David Ferrer’s career has continued after he claimed his second consecutive Acapulco title and 11th career title. By winning he denied Nico Almagro the golden swing (three consecutive clay court titles) the same way he did last year to Juan Carlo Ferrero. The win ends Almagro’s 13 match winning streak. Read more
Robin Soderling has claimed his third title of the season after beating Marin Cilic 6-7, 6-3, 6-3 in Marseille over night. Soderling has improved his record for the season to a 17-1 win-loss record. Read more

>After good friend Viktor Troicki retired in their third round match after Novak Djokovic took the first set 6-2, the world number three enjoyed a quick dance with Kim Johnson from Dancing With The Stars.
After 39 minutes Troicki retired with an injured stomach muscle.
“I just heard that he had some struggles with his stomach muscle, but I wasn’t sure how serious it is. I didn’t know that he’s not able to serve… He obviously tried his best. It’s the third round of a Grand Slam. It’s not the way you want to finish the tournament, definitely. It’s sad for him, but I have to move on.” – Novak Djokovic
“I was thinking it might get better for today, but it didn’t I didn’t want to risk anything; the season’s just started. I had to be 100 per cent if I wanted to beat Novak – if any chance, I needed to be 100 per cent – so today I think I took a smart decision and retired from the match.” – Viktor Troicki
Just in case you didn’t quite get your daily dose of Djokovic, here’s an ad he did for Head that is hilarious. It may not be new but its good.
Novak will play Nicolas Almagro in the next round.
