Almagro rolls on but Moya loses in Acapulco

Nicolas Almagro defeated Potito Starace 7-6 6-7 6-3 while Carlos Moya was upset 64 7-5 by Leonardo Mayer in Acapulco.

Almagro hit 18 aces to Potito Starace's three but went serve for serve with the Italian before claiming the victory after more than 2 and a half hours of play. Almagro made the decisive break for 4-2 in the third set.

"It was a tough match. I played a good first set and a better tiebreak than him. In the second set I couldn't take advantage of the early break I had in the second set. I'm still not playing as good as last year but am getting better each match." Almagro said.

Nicolas Almagro will play against Daniel Gimeno-Traver in his fourth successive quarterfinals here at the Abierto Mexicano Telcel.

Not so fortunate was Almagro's countryman, Carlos Moya, who was upset by Leonardo Mayer 6-4, 7-5.

Moya made only half of his first serves and was broken once in each set to bow out in the second round for the second year in a row. Mayer, following only his sixth ever match on the main ATP Tour, will meet Gael Monfils, who beat Thomaz Bellucci of Brazil 7-6 6-7 6-1.

Carlos Moya, lost to qualifier Maximo Gonzalez 6-4, 6-4. While gaston Gaudio was defeated by Daniel Gimeno-Traver 6-2 4-6 6-2.

Gonzalez led 4-0 Moya in the first set and almost blew a 5-1 lead in the second.

"Without a doubt, it's the most important win of my career," Gonzalez said.

Moya, Champion in 2003 and 2006, blamed his loss on pains in his leg he's been suffering for more than a year.

"I haven't competed in a month. Now the priority is to put myself in good physical condition." Moya said.

Gaudio, winner in 2005, had a better excuse. He lost a 3 set battle to Daniel Gimeno-Traver in his first match on tour in a year because of injuries.
It's been 21 months since the Argentine won a match on the tour and he made a fighting start with breaks in each set, spoiled by 11 double faults.

In other results from Tuesday Tommy Robredo defeated Potito Starace 5-7, 6-3, 6-3, but Thomaz Bellucci was beaten by Marcel Granollers 7-5, 7-5.
