In lieu of the any towels to be had, I got myself a souvenir coffee mug yesterday (you know me and coffee mugs...):

The whole week was also dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness so they made a load of players sign this banner:

I got there in plenty of time. I figured I'd just get my seat in the Agora and read for a while. Turns out the junior boys final was happening.

It was adorable to see. One was even tinier than the ball-girls (he lost). Already there was plenty of fist-pumping, vamos-ing and some other choice language going on, which was a bit less adorable.
At the end they got some suitably tiny trophies and a GIANT TUBE OF NUTELLA each.

After that it was straight into the first final, Peya/Soares v Bryans.

I didn't think Peya/Soares could do it, but by god they proved me wrong. This was one hell of a final. Two TB sets and a super TB going into overtime. Both had MPs at some point or other. Well deserved for Peya and Soares.

This match had taken its time, so it was straight into the last match, Ferrer v Youzhny.

After Youzhny took the first set he went off the boil for a while and for a bit there it looked like Ferru just might make a comeback. Maybe Ferru was pressing a bit too hard, tho, cos he too was making all the errors and letting Youzhny get himself together again.
And I have to admit, it was 30C outside and the Agora was packed. With not having had any break I was getting pretty damn uncomfortable. My heart wanted Ferru to win, but the rest of my body wanted this over in 2 sets. Also I have nothing against Youzhny so I wasn't too sad he got to lift the trophy :)

Farewell Valencia!
