Disagree, if you were watchiing the point by point updates you would have noticed that when lopez got broken he had 40-30 in most games but failed to serve the games. Most of Ryderstedt break point chances came after Lopez failed to convert his game point chances.
And there is no way ryderstedt should have come close in the 2nd set. Lopez was up 4-1 and served for the set at 5-3, but unlike Lopez Ryderstedt was able to capatilize at key moments.
I think it may have been a combination of Ryderstedt playing well and Lopez playing pretty poorly. I have seen a few of his matches recently and he never really gets into big trouble on his serve, but today every one of his service games seemed to be a struggle.
