At the end of Federer's first round match at the Australian Open a fawning interviewer asked about his kids and if he had bought coach Stefan Edberg a birthday present - no, by the way, the privilege of knocking up with 'King Roger' was enough of a present apparently.
Watched the second set and OMG what a beast this Ferrer was. Blaž needed to play his best tennis just to win few points. Ferrer was mosty rock solid and hit some nice winners as well. Dominating with his forehand and returning 200km/h serves for breakfast.
Absolutely nothing Blaž could do here, but he got a new experience and was shown how tennis is played on the highest level.

I don't think Ferrer was that sensational, actually... Only 2 aces, and 55% of first serves, that's not up to his usual standards. He can do a lot better than this. A huge amount of winners, though, that's where he made the difference.
I'm not worried, though, he still won very easily and he didn't need to put more effort into it, 6-2, 6-2 is enough
