Shame Jo couldn't give a better account of himself. He was clearly fatigued after the 25-23 match and the long doubles match too; that might be enough to beat Lopez, but to have a chance against Nole you need to be fresh and summon your best tennis.
Nole played within himself, just returned solidly. Always looked in control and could have upped his game if needed.
Hope Nole goes to the final and Jo gets to win a medal in the doubles tournament.
