From what it seemed, Canas was the one holding easier in the final set until he served one bad game, double faulting on match point. It is kind of ironic for a man who is known to come from behind by being rock solid under pressure, that he should fall victim to another man turning around when he is applying all the pressure. One bad game, and poof, it was gone.

Re: Lopez beats Cañas 6-4 1-6 7-5 3-6 7-5 to win first ATP title

OH YEAH!!!!! What a match this was That was unbelievable and I'm glad that Lopez won it at the end. I saw that he was playing great the whole week and his draw wasn't too difficult and he is a great player on such a surface. Not that I'm a fan of Lopez, but congrats for his first title, very well deserved and he played great tennis to beat Canas.

Sure you must also give Canas congratulations as he was the main factor to make this match as exciting and good as it was and his recent winning record was very impressive. He just found his master today in a match that included (almost) everything and that was decided by a few close decisions and a few single points.


Ironically, it was "girly boy" who was tougher than Canas at the end and who grinded down one of the biggest fighters and fittest players of the tour Canas saved 0-40 in 11th game of the fifth set and it seemed (or maybe some people would have expected) as if Lopez was mentally done because he had all three break points saved, but somehow "girly boy" didn't back down and immediately worked his way back into another rally to earn another break point what finally made impression on Canas because, on the next point, he double faulted away the deciding service game with just his (I believe) first double fault since the end of the 1st set.

Outstanding match what would have deserved two winners!


Enjoy this day Lopez fans

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy
