Even though his first serve was off, that winners/unforced errors column is really telling.

Ferrero 55/38
Etlis 39/48

Well, I'm off to dinner.

I'm so HAPPY though!!!!!!!!!!!

Bon apetite.

I'm INCREDIBLY happy. And relieved.

Sorry no pics of his victorious smile. The netcam didn't catch it.

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

Thanks for all those pictures.

What a relief. It's only the 2nd set. I'm hoping he won't face Gonzalez the next round. Or he'll just really have to keep his level the whole match.

I'm much more confident now that he won the second round. But you're right, Gonzalez is a dangerous opponent. But so is Ferrero!

Very true.
His record past the 2nd round is great this year. I'm sure he's aware of that and probaby gain a lot of confident after the 2nd round. I can't wait to see the next one. Hopefully, it's in a court where there's TV setup. Better yet, if they show it. Having Gonzalez as a opponent certainly helped. He's the guy who just beat Roddick.

I have a theory about his hair. Maybe he is getting it to throw off Arthurs, afterall Arthurs' the giant killer, that deserves some respect. I think now they have those temporary dye, would that be the case?

I've never heard of temporary dye. You mean something you wash off? It takes several washings and I don't think you can achieve such a flourescent color. I think he had to have bleached it, or it wouldn't be so much lighter. But my theory is that he lost a bet or did it on a truth or dare. Something like that. Or just to stir things up.

What a treat, I'm watching the frenchmen fighting it out now, Grosjean's hitting some beautiful return of serves but unable to beat Clement. On serve now. I have to sit closer to the TV. I'll be right back.

Ouch. He lost. I mean Grosjean. Man, I hate this year's draw, all those nice players facing each other so early. 3 of my fav's down. Just a couple remains. Though just need one to win to make me happy. Go Juanqui!

Yet, I heard of those temp dye, it's like you can undo it. I'm not sure how it works but you don't have to wear it out or dye over, just undo. But with that fluoresent color, I'm not sure. A dare could be a good reason. If he just want a change, he should at least keep it til the Open's over. Now, can someone interview him and ask him about that?

Personally, I think he did it just to freak us out. You know, keep the fans on their toes sort of thing
