Obviously you havent seen the match if you are writing him off
Ferreira is an excellent player on Rebound Ace, and especially in the Aussie heat in any case, just look at his record in Australia. And today he was just in the zone, he couldnt miss a single shot and just played superbly. It was definitely a different player to the one who played in Adelaide. Blake had many break point chances, so the match was closer than it seemed, but Wayne played very well to save them and that frustrated Blake a little which is normal, so he lost his serve. It was 32 degrees today, with a court surface temperature of 50, and Blake looked more affected by the heat than Wayne. After seeing this match today I still think James will do well at the AO, but I knew from the outset he was just unlucky to draw a player like Ferreira.
