MONTREAL, Aug 6 (Reuters) – Second seed Juan Carlos Ferrero strolled into the third round of the Montreal Masters with a swift 6-3 6-4 win over Morocco’s Younes El Aynaoui on Wednesday.
Canadian wildcard Simon Larose, who upset three-times French Open champion Gustavo Kuerten in the first round, continued his winning form by battling past Argentina’s Jose Acasuso 7-6 1-6 7-5.
Ferrero had lost his six previous encounters against world number 22 El Aynaoui but the Spaniard was in full control on this occasion.
“There is a first time for everything,” said the 23 year-old Roland Garros winner.
“I didn’t do mistakes in the whole match and I played very intelligent all the time.”
Ferrero, a clay specialist, said he needed only a couple of days of practise to get used to Montreal’s hard court.
His last tournament on the surface dates back to the Miami Masters in March.
