The last two times he's faced Nadal on clay, Almagro had him on the ropes but just couldn't finish it out. He's been closer to defeating, hell taking SETS off Nadal than Tsonga, Berdych, Tips, and Del Potro on clay. He doesn't roll over and die against Nadal on clay.

Almagro's game actually matches up well with Nadal, his 1HBH is excellent at dealing with high balls (he's a CC specialist) and he usually does give Nadal tough matches on clay in comparison to the field.
Thank you. Somebody w/some logic
