Federer Def. Lopez, 7 - 6, - 6 - 4

Good match, much easier than the score implies, federer dominated the first set but good guts by Lopez.

You gotta feel for Lopez. He saved ten (TEN! ) break points with great aggressive play before Federer got his lone break. Federer cruised on serve, though. Still, Lopez certainly would have beaten many other quarterfinalists today. He actually showed mental strength! If he keeps this up, he'll be top 15 in no time!

That match was just never going to end any other way. Despite the relatively closeness of the score, Fed was in cruise control.

Awful match. Roger did all he needed to win, but nothing more. It just seemed like he wanted to give the audience match time equivalent to the ticket price
Onto the semis then

PS Lopez had more winners

Did you watch the match? On most of those break points, he didn't do much wrong.

Nothing to be ashamed of for Lopez. He saved 10/11 BP's...that's good against anyone, let alone Federer. He had a great tournament, his third in a row. Albert Costa is a genius.

Congrats to Roger.

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

Spot on! Lalo was playing a lot better than the match's notes say, and deserves a lot more credits for his game (at least at the level he's playing right now) than he usually gets.

Not a moment in doubt that Roger would win this match, though. He held his serve a lot easier than Lalo, so I consider this a deserved win by the far better player. Vamos, Rogelio!

Good Tie Break year for Fedexho in 07... the real king of TBS, not that Serb.

Lopez was very good, but I think his backhand sealed his doom.
Congrats to Fed. Fantastic serve.

That was pretty good play from Lalo. I think he's actually getting better.
