Shanghai SF: Ferrer def. Lopez 6-7 (5) 6-3 6-3

Very entertaining match between two contrasting styles. Dog of a game LaLo played to get broken.

Ferrer what a warrior.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

11 aces by Ferrer... Deliciano should be among the top 3 of best returners.

Bad match up on the surface for Ferrer, but he is just too ballsy and strong minded, compared to Lopez.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Here's a tip. Don't regret nothin'. You ain't got the time. Before you know it, you'll be 60 something years old giving free advice to some cheapskate runt... Then going home and regretting it.

Contrast... that's the word —damn, how I miss those days...

An excellent match, ruined by a very poor service game late in the third.

David – best of luck in the final.

Re: Shanghai SF: Ferrer def. Lopez 6-7 (5) 6-3 6-3

Lopez 7-1 H2H against Ferrer on hardcourts. But Ferrer is a much more clutch player in tense situations, and has good memories of that court, reaching the TMC final in Shanghai a few years back.

In the end, the reality of being close to a Masters 1000 final got too much for Lopez, I think, with that horror game with 3DFs to hand the decisive third set break over. Ferru served it out comfortably.

Until that point it was a very nice, entertaining match with some good points and as much of a clash of styles as you're ever likely to see these days. The lighter ball meant Lopez was able to attack the net with great success as long as he hit good approaches and volleys, while Ferrer was able to dominate the baseline and do his best to pin Lopez back.

Very good fun, just a shame Lopez threw in that mental meltdown at the end.
