Sounds it. Janowicz is massively out of position in terms of ranking, wouldn't surprise me to see more results like this against guys ranked 30-60.
Yeah I was thinking about this earlier - it really is such an unusual situation for a player to suddenly be boosted so many places in the rankings. I bet it'll take Janowicz a bit of adjusting to his new status. But at least he'll have lots of chances to get wins as he'll be able to get in the Masters draws without qualifying. Hope he can get a good draw at the AO - I do enjoy his style - very unusual to see a player who hits his second serves nearly as hard as his first! Nice variety in his game too.
Didn't see the match, but was interested in the match up as these were two unusual stories last year. First match back for JJ since Paris, while BB lost to Dimitrov in Brisbane 1st round.
I remember one of JJ's Paris victims (Simon?) saying let's see how he gets on outdoors and whether he can still hit the lines. I see today he hit 11 aces (22 v Andy!) and 10 DFs.
Will be watching with interest anyway.
Today the conditions weren't great - very windy - so that may be why he didn't hit as many aces. He definitely seemed more error-prone that he was in Paris, so it could be that indoors suits his game more. Still very gutsy under pressure though - I like that about him.
