That sounds sketchy, what happened? I'm assuming you've watched him play against Montanes, so luckily you have that!
Yeah, I'll tell you more, but basically what happened is that I got very unlucky with the practice sessions.
Tuesday: rain all morning
Wednesday: Ferrer scheduled at 11 am --> practiced early before the opening of the gates
Thursday: rain practically all day, almost no practice on the small courts
Sunday: Ferrer scheduled again at 11 am --> I had bought an extra ticket to try and see him practice, but I did not go since it would have been impossible.
Tuesday: I went, and learnt after a while that he was practising, but on Lenglen, and it was impossible to see him there because it was strictly private and closed to the public. Can't even describe the frustration of knowing that he was just right next to me but I couldn't even catch a glimpse.
And to make things worse: I've just seen pics being posted on Twitter of Ferrer practising this morning on a very sunny, small court (open to the public). Seriously FML.
