Re: 30-year-old Lopez for first time in Top 20

There was some guy many years back who said that Lopez has the potential to win Wimbledon or something. I don't get what he saw in Lopez to say such a thing? The only thing that pops to mind, is his serving ability and his SV game in general. However, his backhand, was nearly absent. All he could do with it was slice and he was bad at that, but good enough to upset Roddick which shows how pathetic Roddick is. However, this year, I heard he's reduced the slicing, and now he's trying to actually implement a true 1 handed backhand.

Yungos congratulates Lopez on his achievement. Yungos is a fan of the way Lopez plays and said Lopez deserves it.

Re: 30-year-old Lopez for first time in Top 20

Feli has improved a lot since he dropped his old coach and hired Beresutegui. It's honestly somewhat hilarious that a guy whose game is most suited to grass and faster courts is being coached by a former clay specialist who played something like two grass matches his entire career.

Well, whatever Alberto B is doing for Feli, it's working. Congrats Feli

Yungos is making the point that Lopez is a fantastic claycourter. Yungos just said that Lopez played out one of the matches of the year in Madrid against Roger Federer. Yungos notes that the match featured three tie-breakers

Lawrence thinks it's a fail thread. Lawrence thinks Lopez deserves better than top 20. Lawrence thinks it's a sunny day. Lawrence thinks it's.....

Lopez is the only Spaniard on tour worth watching. That said, it's a weak era when a 30 year old Lopez is anywhere near the Top 20.

Although a fifth of the top 20 are about 28 or older already Next spring there will very likely be three 30 year olds in the top 10 (Federer, Ferrer, Fish)

Dougie is forced to point out that Madrid clay is not really a clay court at all, closer to hard court. Still, great match.

I always thought Lopez would've had a bunch of titles to his names by now and regularly win fast courts events like the 250s or 500s like easy.
