I watched all the match and its quite a good match.
Great first 2 sets,many winners,managed to do everything he wanted,seemed like a demonstration.
Then the australian won his first game in the third,since that he started to play more free,better serve,handle the crosscourt battle,less UES and richard became more defensive,hit more UES and lost his serve at 2-3 in the third.
Then in the fourth(the first game was a little bit hesitant)but was more solid,did the job,to break him at 2-1(opponent DF though)
well its a first match,never easy,even against a much lower player,not really powerful.
Lopez will be more tough,he will have to be really agressive and serve as well than i this first round with many aces(14 no?)
Allez richard and congrats.
PS: great win for jo,so happy for him
hahahaha when I think about GM quarter finale pronostics,they put for 90% ,Murray
