Yeah, it is a tough draw but still.. the excellent 'ride' he had in Rome is still fresh, or should be still fresh so maybe it'll help a little. If only he could've gone further in Estoril ...

Don't know how much the voting helped him, but surely the withdrawals had a lot to do with it I think

Re: Vamos Juan - Madrid 2009 cheering thread

Great match. First set - beautiful. In the second he struggled a bit, most of the times on his opponent’s serve. Managed to break him in the end and served for the match at 4-6, 5-6. He had one MP and it was all he needed, he made good use of it.

I’m attaching match stats for those interested. It was definitely a match worth seeing again. Pico produced some fabulous drop shots, also a lot of net action as well, including throwing himself after a ball
Next one David Ferrer.


Vamos Pico

Re: Vamos Juan - Madrid 2009 cheering thread

Lots of BP, most of which wasted but no problem as long as Juan is not frustrated because of that.

Juan is 2-0 up against Ferrer on clay. He played some great tennis there! Hope he will make it again. Vamos, Juan!

Actually he was getting frustrated as the second set was ending, he kept trying to break Lopez and kept missing it. You could clearly see it on his face. It was a bit distressful to see that struggle but fortunately he did break Lopez.

I'm sure he's all focused on the next match

You are right!

I should have written:

"as long as Juan does not lose from being frustrated"

I've been following Pico for only a short time - since his match against Murray in Rome, to be more exact - and from what I've seen so far he doesn't strike me as the type of player who would remain stuck on a lost game or point. That's a good thing for him and I like that. I've been trying to follow his matches whenever possible and I can't believe how good of a player and what a fighter he is. Better late than never, I guess
