It's a huge, huge deal for any player when he makes this type of breakthrough.
The Dutch commentators said that he wasn't at the AO this year because he couldn't find the money to cover his expenses as he had no sponsor whatsoever. That will most likely be rather different in a couple of weeks time to come.

Re: Paris F: (4) Ferrer def (Q) Janowicz 6-4 6-3

This year I have seen my favourite two players get monkeys off their backs:

1) The best current player (at the time possibly ever) not to have won a slam finally won one.
2) The best current player not to have won a Masters finally won one.

Feels good man! B)

Also, Janowicz to me seems like the first of the new breed who could actually step up soon to challenge those in the top 10. Might even break top 10 in 2013...

I support Andy Murray!

Born to be the fourth best player in the world!
