I would say he is several levels above him. Hopefully in 2 months time Rui is playing CH like he should. He is too good to playing in these weak fields..
Lol, you are overrating Rui so much. Today Olaso was in a really bad day, completely lost his head and even started to play one single handed backhand. Rui was just putting the ball on his backhand. This Future was really weak, we speak better next week in Italy, way more stronger.
Machado's serve stills far away from his best and he can't play regularly on CH level with that serve.
