USO R4: Nadal def. Lopez 6-3 6-4 6-4

Good effort from Lopez but Nadal was too solid for him. Nadal was better against Istomin and Simon but this is a good performance though.

Good chance to him against Verdasco in quarters!

Solid and couldn't really be in doubt given that Lopez has little security in his shots.

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

Rafa played much better against Istomin and Simon, but was solid enough to get away with this match

Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer

Re: USO R4: Nadal def. Lopez 6-3 6-4 6-4

that was a solid match for Rafa. still hasn't dropped serve. impressive! feli didn't stand a chance. hope nando is ready for a beatdown too.

There are times, rare moments, when the greatest of champions fall. Maybe because of a bad day or maybe there's pain within. One thing you can be sure of, is that all the great champions will bounce back again. It may not be today. It may not be tomorrow. But one day, they'll be back again. And they'll be better than ever. Why??? Because that's what great champions do. They survive.

Second straight boring match of Baldal Don't expect too much of his next match against Bendoverdasco

Pretty good from Rafa. Didn't serve as well as against Simon and reverted to dropping his shots too short on this surface but more than good enough for a player like Feli. Youzhny in the semis could be the first big test.

Very little doubt Rafa will win this tournament, and complete the Slam!!

Re: USO R4: Nadal def. Lopez 6-3 6-4 6-4

A little bit weak and passive in the third set, otherwise very good from Rafa. Good serve, almost double as many winners as UE's.. He got it done in 3. All in all a good match from Rafa today (or should I say tonight? )

Maybe 4 or 5 if he wants to get more of a workout in.

Exactly. If that's not solid, I don't know what is

Sure, he played better in the earlier rounds, but.. At least he got it done in three here, and the stats are good.

Lopez was too inconsistent. Funny thing was his horrendous dropshot attempt in the 2nd.

Nadal has to improve his play in the next rounds. 1st serve% was a little low for him.

Re: USO R4: Nadal def. Lopez 6-3 6-4 6-4

Nadal is looking very good and this is the toughest he has ever been at US open. His serve is extremely good and gets him out of trouble, which wasn't the case previously. Anyone who wants to beat him has to work even harder than in the past on hard courts.

His ROS is his only main weakness in his game. Other than that, his game looks very solid for winning the US open this year.
