Well, this is relatively positive in the Britís standard. Brits never really bothered to talk about Ferrero, if they have anything to say, usually not any good. Dunno why, maybe bcos they donít like Spanish players in general for most of them skipping Wimby. Anywayz.
It seems Juanqui played a better match today, and played the net often than usual. But I also have to give the edge to Rogi. He didnít look comfortable today at the beginning but certainly play himself into form, and heís cool as a cucumber on those big points. I wonít take that loss in Rome too seriously though bcos JC was quite injured in that match. Though last year in Shanghai when he got clipped by Rogi was probably a better indicator.
Iím upset about Sebís loss too. I really hope he gets to Houston. So hopefully, he will do his magic in Paris, like he did couple of years ago.
Iím sure Massu is tough too, heís playing very well, no doubt. But heís not a thread yet to Houston so if he beat Younes, heís not going to take over Seb in the race, I think. Weíll see tomorrow. If Ferrero can get past Federer, I think heíll be very inspired to get the title even if he has to face his nemesis.
If Juanqui wins Madrid, he will likely goes to Houston on even term with Pandy. Giving that Houston is now an OUTDOOR hardcourt
event, all the advantage towards Pandy, Juanqui needs as much points as he can get before Houston. And since heís not that good on carpet, this title is very important, I almost think this is a must-win, critical to his chance to get the yearend #1. Well, weíll see tomorrow how he does against Rogi. To me, heís the most determined of all 3 to get the number 1 title, so I really hope heíll get it at the end (and of course also bcos heís my fave
Having said all that, I guess I won't be too surprised if he got creamed by Rogi
, nor would I be too upset about that. But I'll hope for the best.
