Vamos JCF- So great to see him get the first match under his belt. Good luck in the next round!

Tim...tough draw for him.

Congrats Henman on losing to a guy who lost to Martin last week. You should be proud of yourself.

Re: Ferrero def Henman 7:5 6:2

Ferrero showed a lot of his clay court pedigree from about 5-5 in that first set and was playing well by the end, certainly.

Tim did his best but with no help from the surface and a player on the other side very adept at exploiting the surface...well it was always going to be a tough ask. Tim did his best and played well at times but was perhaps a bit too predictable and Ferrero certainly was putting the ball in all kinds of difficult places by the end.

Re: Ferrero def Henman 7:5 6:2

Henman choked in the 1st with bps to take the first set, and it went all down hill from there.

Re: Ferrero def Henman 7:5 6:2

JCF will be so relieved that he won that one. That could have plunged him to new lows that even he would have never reached before. I don't know if he's still feeling a bit sick but he looked very tired and unsure of himself in that first set.

It's actually quite scary how close Henman came to winning that first set. This is so typical of clay matches. They can swing so easily one way or another.

Ferrero went 0-40 up on Henman's serve early in the first set and missed all of them. Had he taken one of them, it could have been a one-sided match. Then Henman had opportunities when he went 15-40 up on Ferrero's serve at 4-3. Had he taken one, he would have won the first set 6-3 and could have provided an incredible upset.
