His reaction after his win:
I agree with his comments on the "Caja Magica"! (He says he doesn't like the venue at all, only concrete everywhere, the courts are not good, there isn't much positive to say, to be honest.)
Yesterday was a bit better because there were more people around, so it was lively and noisy and felt more like a Masters 1000 event. It helped to forget about the venue.
As for the match, his FH and his serve were working fine, so he was never in danger. He says in the interview Chucho always looks so lifeless, it's just his way to be, but I did find Chucho particularly weak yesterday, he didn't put up a big fight, really. The last point was quite significant, Jim won with an ace or a service winner, I don’t remember if Chucho touched the ball, but the serve looked definitely wide, the guy next to me also thought so and Chucho looked at the mark with an expression saying "OK, guys, that serve was out, but never mind, let's put an end to this misery" and went to the net for the handshake.
It was amusing because Jim is even slower than Chucho between the points, which is quite an achievement. It’s his way to stay focused during the match, I guess, I was very impressed by his concentration, but it was driving me crazy to see him move in slow motion like that. I was comparing them when they went back to their chair for the changeover and Chucho was reaching his chair first (although he was dragging himself on the court like he always does)!
