KUALA LUMPUR - Spaniard Nicolas Almagro, who has endured a wretched season, vowed Monday to right that wrong at the Malaysian Open. The 28-year-old, who is seeded third in Malaysia, will play Adrian Mannarino in the second round after receiving a first round bye. The world number 17, who was born in Murcia, has not won any titles this year, and last month lost 6-3, 6-1, 4-6, 6-3 in the first round of the US Open to Dennis Istomin. "I didn't play really well in the last few tournaments, but I'm feeling much better than a month ago," said Almagro. "I'm playing here because I want to change my luck." In 2011 Almagro reached the quarter-finals here. "I honestly believe I have a great chance of winning this tournament," he said.–AFP
