Madrid R1: [Q] Andreev def. Ferrero 6-4 7-6(4)
Igor saved two set points in the second set at *4-5 and 5/5 in the match. Very strong match mentally from Igor, he did a lot of damage with serves out wide on both sides, and his forehand, although he had his customary mishits, was really clicking and moved JCF all around with it. Great serving from Igor on the big points and in the tiebreak.
JCF fought very hard as we all knew he would, proved he still has game left. His movement was quite weak and he made too many forehand errors. But given this is his first match in a while, he showed some decent signs, enough to keep him relevant and keep him in the game past Valencia? We'll see.
