Well, this is relatively positive in the Brit’s standard. Brits never really bothered to talk about Ferrero, if they have anything to say, usually not any good. Dunno why, maybe bcos they don’t 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 didn’t look comfortable today at the beginning but certainly play himself into form, and he’s cool as a cucumber on those big points. I won’t 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.
I’m upset about Seb’s 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.
I’m sure Massu is tough too, he’s playing very well, no doubt. But he’s not a thread yet to Houston so if he beat Younes, he’s not going to take over Seb in the race, I think. We’ll see tomorrow. If Ferrero can get past Federer, I think he’ll 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 he’s 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, we’ll see tomorrow how he does against Rogi. To me, he’s the most determined of all 3 to get the number 1 title, so I really hope he’ll get it at the end (and of course also bcos he’s 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.
