Has Lopez just established himself as the 2011 Wimbledon darkhorse?

He's always had a beautiful game to watch. All his shots look fantastic and executed to perfection. The question with Feli has never been his timeless talent it has been his mental strength. So far mentally he has been outstanding. Never gets down when missing, always calm and collected. He has the look in his eyes. Right now everything is clicking. He is full of confidence and just isn't missing. He just played Roddick off the park and isn't nearly finished.

I'm thinking semi-finals at the minimum and perhaps even the final. Normally the AO has the hot/form players (tsonga/Gonzo/verdsaco) but this time it's wimbledon.

I think he can go further after wimby anyway. Posibly tear up the US hard court season. He has shined there before. top 10 at the end of the year is not without the question. Or even WTF.

Right now though he looks in great shape. How far can he go?

No. Roddick just established himself as the 2011 Wimbledon retard, losing to his pigeon on grass.

Beating Roddick these days doesn't say much. He seems to be happy just getting the ball over the net during rallies. Any half decent player would feast on Roddick playing like that. A top5 player would have routined him 6-3. 6-2 or so

Good form, great win today, but Roddick made him look good. Always very easy to ace Duck, Murray will get everything back.

I think it was kinda expected...
Roddick isn't playing pretty well and Feli's style of play is so Wimbledon.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!

No, he's just a world class player in this surface, and also Roddick is done. I was hopping he will reach QF anyway. Murray, will be a hard task, IMO. But still a possible one.

It wasn't beating Roddick. It was the way he beat him. I can just picture Murray losing in agony again. Lopez has the tool and confidence to do the job.

Murray will have probably an harder task to deal with before that potential QF.
