ROGERS MASTERS
August 6, 2007
MONTREAL, QUEBEC
THE MODERATOR: Questions for Juan Carlos.
Q. How do you analyze the match? Where do you think that Lleyton played maybe better?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: I think was pretty close match – both sets. When I finished first set, I think, you know, the first-serve percentage was the same, the winners was the same. Was pretty close, only he won one more point than me in the first set. It’s difficult to say what he did better than me.
Second set, of course, the only game I played bad in the whole match was the first game of the second set. It was very important to the end of the match.
Q. I guess it also demonstrate for a tournament like this, the draw is very difficult, to have a match-up like that in the first round.
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Yeah, it’s pretty difficult to have it. There is a lot of tough match in the draw, in the first round. Obviously, mine was the toughest one. You know, it’s like this. We cannot do anything for it.

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.
