    Robredo rallies to beat Almagro Former World No. 5 Tommy Robredo is through to the last eight at the French Open, following his come-from-behind victory over 11th seed Nicolas Almagro. The veteran moves on to face World No. 5 David Ferrer in the quarterfinal.

    Former World No. 5 Tommy Robredo advanced to the quarterfinal after rallying from a two-sets-to-love deficit for the third consecutive match. The veteran came back to record his first win over 11th seed Nicolas Almagro, 6-7(5), 3-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4.

    Robredo trailed multiple times during the match, including a 0-2 hole in the final set. After leveling at 4-4, the 31-year-old took a key service break to serve at 5-4. Robredo ended the round of 16 match with 8 aces, 7 service breaks and 42 winners.

    Almagro, who led 4-1 in the third set and 4-2 in the fourth, completed the match with 67 unforced errors.

    Robredo is through to take on World No. 5 David Ferrer in the next round.

Another Almugro classic. He makes Fer'dasco seem mentally tough.

Unbelievable!!! I thougt Almagro had that in the bag!!! Boy I tell you in tennis, you just never know!!! See looks like Simon and Fed going to a fifth, after Fed looking like he was running away with it!!!!

I think, Robredo has been the story of this French Open...A fascinating story...

Almagro just doesn't have it between the ears. He did the same thing in the AO against Ferrer in the quarterfinals. He was up two sets to none and then seemed to just collapse. All Ferrer had to do was keep the ball in play.

Robredo has been the feel good story so far. Well done!

Ferru for the final!

I think Ferrer will reach the final only if Tsonga beats Fed...Ferrer might be competitive with Fed for most part of the match and can take Fed to 4 or 5 sets, but the lack of a killer shot in his arsenal and the mental blockage against Fed will be too much for him to overcome. Of course, anything can happen in tennis, but this to me is the likelier outcome...I think Tsonga, riding on home support, has a better chance of upsetting Fed...But, still Fed should be the favourite to reach the final..

Mr. Robredo - Take a bow. Respect

What Robredo is doing is nothing short of amazing, really!
I'm only sorry I didn't see his match against Monfils because I've heard that the 4th set was awesome.
Yeah, Ferrer most likely will crumble against Fed but this year is the year to do it. Fed was shanking many shots against Simon yesterday.
