This match was all about Julien. First set, he played poorly and Machado was pretty inspired. As soon as Julien started playing well this was not a contest. Rui has nothing in his game to beat good form high level players on anything outside of a once in a blue moon basis. He also didn't look all the way there physically and mentally.
Julien played a good final three sets, he could be a dangerous player going forward.
if he takes out Ferru, which I doubt.
