I hope you're right.
He did, at least, seem to be going in the right direction because he played much better in the 3rd set than in the 1st. His forehand was just starting to work when the match ended and he was really starting to make Ivan work hard.
This could be a good experience, the sort of match that could set him up well for Madrid.
