Who will prevail and who will choke ?
Poll it up! I'm expecting a close first set that Wawrinka wins then a relatively easy second set he takes
They played against each other in Beuno Aires Semi here last year as well. Almagro won the match : 6-4,3-6,7-5.
I expect a 3 setter with Stan winning this time around.
Stam leads 2-1 on Clay and 4-3 in total matches.
Be a good match to see who plays for second place.
Stan has been losing serve a lot this week. Gonna go almagro.
Stan will be wearing a David Ferrer's mask.
It's all about who wants it the least!
The new Stan the Man in 2.
i want stanislas to win, but i think nico will beat him.
good to see robredo progressing well. Ferrer will end that though.
Wawrinka really changed something in his game (or in his head), I hope for victory over Almugro.
I don't want to watch another match between Almagro and Ferrer, it's painful....
Heart says Stanislas, mind says Nico, side says Wawa so I won't have to LMAO til I split it when Nico becomes AlChokeGro again vs Ferrer!
Battle of two awesome shbh's! Should be a bit of eye candy for the purists.
Gotta appreciate two single-handed BH at work no matter the result.
Shocked that Wawa is hanging with Almagro right now.
Wawa gets the break and will serve for the first set.
Cool story. Stan serving for the set.
Unlucky for Almagro, I believe it was overruling on a 2nd serve so point had to be replayed, then he hit another DF and was frustrated. Can't blame him but nothing much he could do.
why are you shocked
Nice first set for Wawrinka. Be interesting to see if he can keep it up.
Almagro loves the red stuff and Wawrinka has had his serve broken a lot this week.
clay is Waw favorite surface and last two matches Wawrinka won in straight sets
He's also been broken 4 times this week by much weaker opponents.
Is the crowd behind Stan? They're roaring really loudly now when he wins a point.
What did Almagro do to **** Stan/the crowd off? The crowd really behind Stan now. You would think he is a local judging by the roars from the crowd each time he wins a point.
They probably don't want to see another pounding by Daveed on Nico
I'm really glad Stan can get some crowd support. He always seem like the underdog in matches and isn't favoured much. After the match against Seppi in Rome where he was booed heavily, I felt quite sorry for him.
Stan breaks! Serves for the match now.
Loving the crowd cheering for Stan. Got the break. Cmon! Almagro out of another clay 250 before reaching the finals
Looks like Wawa is gonna win it! Great performance today.
Veni vidi vici Stanislas. Well done! Almagro choked.
Did anyone catch that at the end? The volume on my stream is too low.
Awesome to see Stan in a final singles once again, been too long. Really hope he takes this one.
What were they talking at the end? Glad that Almagro gave a the handshake at the end and nothing nasty happened.
Really happy for Stan! He should be due for another title and it will boost his confidence even more.
Not going to happen. Stan's a better chance to win tomorrow over Nico, but a better chance does not = going to win.
Ferrer's an absolute beast on clay. This is his tourney.
Ferrer on his way to securing his second title of the year.
You don't like the other Swiss as well?
Lol, no, I just see Ferrer as a strong favorite.
Great win for Stan...I only matched to catch the brief highlights but there seemed to be an exchange of words between the players at the end of the match.
At the handshake you can hear Stan staying.."when you beat me I'm always ok"...Anyone know what he was referring to??
I remember wawrinka taking Djokovic to 10-12 in the fifth in a 5 hour match at djokovics best grandslam tournament only a month ago, oh yeh! And Ferrer lost to Djokovic in the same tournament in about 90 minutes~
In other news, Rosol is the greatest clay player ever.
It just doesn't work like that.
I'm sorry what now?
any spanish speakers tell us what they actually said?
Sorry but Djoko at AO has 0 relevance to a 250 final between Ferrer and Wawa on clay. Ferrer is the title holder, he is 6-3 vs Wawa overall (before this final), is a much better clay player (20 finals vs 5 for Wawa). He's also #4 vs #17 for Wawa and he's the player who won the most titles in 2012. How could he not be a massive favorite for this match
And Daveed spanks JMDP regularly, and JMDP gives Roger a lot of problems...what's your point?
