Saw Ferrero in the first set, was playing like a total mug. Did he get any better?

both guys were up and down like yo-yos in terms of form.

it was not a high quality match on the whole, though there were entertaining exchanges.

Juanqui - if he'd not blown that third set tiebreak, this would have been a very different result. He had plenty of chances in this match, up a break in the final set, and then lost 6 straight games.

Yes, it was not a bad match. Malisse is playing pretty well this grasscourt season, better than he has for several years I think.

Good for X. Next round against Reister is an interesting matchup.

That was expected. Malisse is really getting his game together again - at least on grass!
And Ferrero didn't even play convincing on clay recently after a great start to the season.

So much for Ferrero being a grass specialist these days.
