Just watching the final. Almagro took first set 6-4, breaking Roddick in the 9th game. Has Almagro read the script?
5-5. Second set getting serious now.
Roddick got a gift of a personalised mountain bike from one of the sponsors, which he seemed happy with, and Almagro got a more light-weight one. Both players were presented with very unusual trophies - 'creative' was the word used by the comms.
Where were the spectators for this match as well? The place was only about one-thirds full. Doesn't bode too well for this tournament continuing but apparently plans are in hand for 2013 and Larry Sefanki thinks it will take off as being a 'must' for players during the off-season. At least the spectators who did turn up were enjoying themselves, so maybe the idea will spread, but hopefully 'lessons will have been learnt' by the organisers. Almagro was quite happy to join in with Roddick in some fooling around during the match, which was great to see.
