On BBC teletext today, at 3-3 in the second set between Fish and Lopez, there was a headline announcing an all-American final at Queens and stating that "Fish saw off Lopez, the conqueror of Nadal, in straight sets 6-3 xxx". So, confident enough to guarantee the outcome, but not yet certain of the score.

I'm pretty sure the journalists start writing up their articles before the match finishes so that they can update it on Ceefax as soon as possible after it is over. Perhaps this was just a draft that wasn't meant to officially go up at that time?
