I am so disappointed for Jo, such a shame, but Verdasco is on fire at the moment and has really taken everybody by surprise. When you think he lost to Stepanek at Brisbane and then whitewashed him at AO this year! Something has definitely clicked in Verdasco's head somewhere and if Jo was feeling anxious about injuries or a little tired it would have made it so difficult for him.
It's funny because Jo really does have "star" quality. My children only ever take an interest in Jo's matches (they really don't like tennis usually, eldest daughter is coming round a little though) but they really like watching Jo. After school, my eldest has made me promise to show her some of Jo's interviews on Youtube. I think she has fallen for Jo's smile!
Rest well Jo and be healthy for your next tournie.
