Re: AO Rd2: Murray routines Sousa 6-2 6-2 6-4
Nothing to be ashamed for Joao. No bakery products involved. I was expecting him to win 5-7 games and he won 8, so I am glad. Some nice points won, but also some normal silly mistakes for someone who never played in a court this big, vs. a player from other league. I am pretty sure he learned A LOT today, and he will use this match to be a better player in the future.
I am proud of my countryman and hope this is the first of many matches in central courts of Slams. For this year I hope he makes a good trasition from Challengers to ATP. top 70 is realistic at the end of the year. For now he will probably be in top 90 next week, which is his best rank ever (his current is 92).
