Harrison showed ingenuity, imagination, clear-headed thinking and impeccable technique as his Babolats took the brunt of his major annoyance at being eliminated from the Masters 1000 tournament in the first round.

Of course, despite the “A” for effort, even this performance can’t top the gold standard, one Marcos Baghdatis.
