The Potato guy managed to break Rafa when he was serving for the match in Barcelona, so the guy has been on a roll for a while, probably after reaching the Valencia final.
But in the second set, he was making a lot of errors and JC was hitting some decent winners. So I hoped the trend would continue in the third set...but that wasn't the case...
I have a feeling that in the decider, not only Potato started to hit the purple patch, but also JC couldn't get into the rhythm, hence a lot of short balls and missed opportunities.
And yes, the crowd really helped the Italians today. Well done to them.
And we now have the hat trick. What a day- first Gaudio, then Safin, and now Ferrero....damn I need a hug.
My top 3 guys are gone too... JCF, Marat and Lleyton.
