After brave Ferrer’s final major swansong Vs Nadal and Simona’s loss at the hands of Kanepi I was eventually justified with my pick of Dimitri Vs Wawrinka as the match up of the day.
Drama ensued elsewhere yes, but for quality you cannot argue against such backhand mastery.
Today it is largely the women producing the goods in terms of fixtures, take your pick from any of the below:
Schnyder (?!) Vs Masha
Stosur Vs Wozniacki
Petkovic Vs Ostapenko
Will add David Ferrer to my list of impending tribute articles when I get round to it.
