For Tsonga clay isnt his favourite surface, but he still makes good results and have 38-18 in last 5 years with just few lossses against weaker opponents. This season he played in Auckland where he won in straight sets against Fognini and Kohlschreiber before losing to later winner Bautista and in AO where he won with 3-1 against Baghdatis and 3-0 against Herbert and Jasika before losing to Nishikori. From last 15 matches he played on clay (including and grand slam which is played on best of 5 sets) he won 12 in straight sets what is really encouraging for this bet. He is just better than ALmagro at the moment and even tho Nicolas is clay court specialists he still dont stand a chance against 9th in the world Jo WIlfried Tsonga.
Spaniard this season started with loss against 369. ANte Pavic in Chennai, In AO won against returning from injury Bennetau with 3-1 and then lost against Thiem with 6-3 6-1 6-3 what was just another proof that he is good only on clay. ALmagro was a great player, he was ranked even in top 10 , but injuries stopped him and now he cant play on that level anymore, but still can be threat to most players (only on clay). They have played 6 times so far and its 6-0 for Tsonga, but last match was played in 2012. All of their games were played while both were at top of their form and in top 15 so Almagro even then when he was much better couldnt win and in 3 games they played on clay he won only 1 set. I dont see how can ALmagro make a break today so I go with highest stake on this bet.
