Re: Portugal Open Final : Wawrinka def. Ferrer 6-1 6-4
Good, rocksolid performance of Wawrinka.
Very good serving, no break for Ferrer.
Probably even no break point for the Spanian.
Ferrer was bad in 1st set and ok in 2nd set.
Wawrinka showed some fine points and some great shotmaking as we know it and want to see it.
Finally a title again!
But: For me I always have to think about this match at AO against Djokovic. He really needs to show some better results now on the BIG stage! I really hope he can win against Djokovic in Madrid now. That would be a great revenge although it will be very hard to play tomorrow or in 2 days in Madrid while Djokovic has not played this week and will have a bye in Madrid.
Anyway: Nice to see another title for Wawrinka,
but it's really time for him to breakthrough at the bigstage.
A semifinal in a Masters or a Grand Slam has to come in the next weeks or months that we can talk from a good year for the Swiss.
