“The goal, when I took my break of six months, was doing this for the next couple years, not just for one tournament, I understand people who say, ‘Oh, this would be a perfect moment to go.’ But I feel like I’ve put in so much work, and I love it so much, and I still have so much in the tank.”
Expected in some sense, yesterday's achievement against Nadal, cost Verdasco too much in every department, reminds me of Roddick's win in Miami against Federer, on the following day A-Rod had nothing to show facing Monaco.
stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
Very much expected result.
Berdych might be the only one who appears to be enjoying this surface - he's been cruising so far.
Berdych - Del Potro is a match to watch out for.
Verdasco only proved here that his victory yesterday was for 90% due to it having been a matter of Nadal succeeding in a brutal attempt of beating himself.
Never mind, QF of a masters, good result anyhows.
