his game looks ideally suited for clay.

I agree, Shawn. This guy was hardly on my radar until last week, but I'm excited to see what's next.

I thought it was also worthy of note that he's already played Rafa and Roger on clay, which is really good experience. Obviously, beating Roger is great for the confidence, but he's also shown with both, and with his good runs, that he's no folder. I think he seems confident and mentally sturdy, the lack of which is the down-side on some of the other promising younger players.
