Monte Carlo R2: Ferrer defeats woeful Safin 6-2 6-3
Ferrer was solid today, a lot better than he was in Valencia for sure and was just too steady and focused.
Safin was very poor today, he must not like early matches. As well as he played yesterday, he wasn't up to par at all. Made too many errors of both sides, smashed the racquet, talking with Bernandes and Karlberg ATP supervisor about bad line calls.
15-0 when Ferrer served in the last game, there was a bit of a sideshow with Safin and the umpire over a ballmark.
“ On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".
Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
Machado wins 6-2 6-1
I definitely would have preferred Gaba winning as he needs the points much more, but Jan would have beaten him anyway. I expect Hajek to destroy Machado, like 6-1 6-2.
