So, Ferrer put up a much better fight than Verdasco did in Monte-Carlo but still went down in straight sets to Nadal, the undisputed Clay King. I managed to catch a fair amount of the action between the rain delays. Of course, this all means little in terms of Roland Garros. Rafa won both Monte-Carlo and Rome last year, too, and still crashed and burned in Paris.
I had an excellent showing in the bracket challenge this time: top 8%. I'm now in the top 17% overall. Next up is Madrid which kicks off next weekend.
