Wimbledon R2: [7] Ferrer def. [LL] Harrison 6-7(6) 6-1 4-6 6-3 6-2

What a warrior. David came out aggressive, focused, intense and ready and Ryan couldn't match the energy. Experience was the big difference here. David served very well today in comparison to yesterday, he came to the net a lot and he simply took the match over.

Ryan will learn from this experience in how to really behave and have the mentality of a top-flight professional at all times.

Wimbledon R2: Ferrer def. Harrison 6-7 (6) 6-1 4-6 6-3 6-2

Too good Ferrer.

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".

Harrison didn't cope with the overnight very well I think. Maybe a bit stiff today.

Good stuff Ferrer though. In a lot of ways he was outmatched here, but used all his game to find the way to win.

Ryan choked terribly in the final set. I saw this coming. . Why Ryan?
By the way Ferrer's alucky bastard, his forehands hit the edges of the lines even when he was out of position. Terrible ending today.

Harrison just couldn't get into it today. Could barely get a first serve in, lots of unforced errors. Showed how inconsistent he is and why he can almost lose to someone barely ranked top 500. Ferrer on the other hand was totally focused and knew what he had to do. Even though he too had a small hiccup at the start of the fifth, it was not enough for the fifth set to be close. Too bad that it had to end this way after yesterday's amazing quality.

Ryan basically played as badly as humanly possible today
He has always been a slow starter, but you can't afford that when the start is a 5th set. I mean you can't break yourself twice and expect to beat Ferrer in a 5th set. Terrible wasted opportunity here because this was a winnable match, but then again he was a LL so it was all house money anyway.

R.I.P. Henry Chinaski

This was a wasted opportunity and quite frankly, he was the better player in the match. But he was also the worst player in the match, if that makes sense. The lows were too low and didn't make up for his highs. Too many mistakes, and simply not focused enough and also a little too immature. But he's young, and he's learning, and all of this will help him in the future.
