Re: LaLo def. El Fashionista Koubek 6-4 3-6 6-4

Feli makes his second straight QF of a tournament. He played alright in the first set, good enough to win it anyway. He fell in love with DF's in the second set, while Koubek really picked up his game. In the third, Lopez just stuck with it. Even when he got pressured on his serve. At *4-5 in the 3rd, Lopez had 3 MP's, but Koubek fought back to get to deuce. Then he had another MP which Koubek again fought off. He wasn't about to let a 5th match point go to waste.

Got it done. I'm telling ya...I saw a change in him at Wimbledon. And it showed itself in that great Stuttgart SF run, and it's continued. This man was ranked 96th at one point earlier this season. His ranking was 43 as of Monday. I sure hope Albert Costa is being compensated nicely for his services.

Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it.

I caught this match from the beginning of the 2nd set, and I have to say that Koubek seemed to be in control from that point.

Just the one poor service game, and it cost him the match.

Costa definitely seems to have got Lopez's ass pointing in the right direction again.

Lopez is former champion at this event, in 2004.
It's a shame that Koubek couldn't convert his break point opportunities early in the final set.

My thinking exactly, Al managed to salvage something out of the wreck that was Lalo's career. It is time to move to something more important, what about DC captain?

Re: LaLo def. El Fashionista Koubek 6-4 3-6 6-4

Strange...Koubek was on top mentally and also playing far better tennis late in the second, some of the stuff was magical, the way he could change defence into attack, from both wings. He reminded me of a younger Grosjean today.

Lopez will be top 35 by the end of the year I think.

He could do well in Madrid TMS, i remember one year he done particularly well there, 2003 when every match he played was pretty epic. The match against Zabaleta was my favourite, it was pretty entertaining. He then went on to lose to Federer, that match was close as well.

He is a dangerous indoor player with the big swining left-handed serve.

Re: LaLo def. El Fashionista Koubek 6-4 3-6 6-4

good work by Feliciano - considered this a toss-up but went w/ Feli 'cause I wanted him to take out that scoundrel Koubek


that said, I saw his entire match vs. Donald Young at the Open and Young thoroughly outplayed him - just had no idea how to play the critical points so Lopez pulled it out. I guess he played better against Federer in the next round (I was gone by then) but still...
