(14) Nicolas Almagro
- DOB: 21/08/1985
- Nationality: ESP
- Became Pro: 2003
- Height: 1.83
To be frank, it will be a major surprise if Almagro is challenging at the business end of proceedings in Melbourne.
His best results have all come on slower clay - indeed all seven of his ATP career titles have all come on the surface.
Two of those came during a fine 2010 campaign, one which propelled him close to gaining a place in the world's top 10 for the first time.
That will now be the aim for the Spaniard, who last year made the fourth round here - the only time he has made the second week in six visits.
He'll do well to repeat that effort in 2011.
