Unexpected match-up here. Funky Flo looks fantastic against Nalby and Rafa, and beside the fact that Lopez shoved against Berdshit about 700% better tennis then day ago against Bogo I still don't see the way how this Felattiano can beat Mayer in his killer mode here.

For me Mayer all the way, no matter in 2 or 3 sets.

I've seen close to zero matches this week, the time zone is just as uncomfortable as it gets, and judging by the results both guys are in good form.
H2H is 2-1 Lopez (1-1 on hard).

Of course I'll root for Flo, and say he'll win in 3.

I saw Lopez against Bogomolov and today against Berdych and I must say that is real joke that this man is in 1/4-final of an masters series tournament. Against Bogo he was awfull and I still don't know how he manage to win at the end (tons of UE's, 14 double faults, no backhand, no 1st serve etc...) Against Berdshit things looks better, but still he can say "thank you" to Berdych for this win. Berdych was on much lower level in todays match than in match against Stepanek and last week in Beijing, and FLO had been simply great against Nalbandian and specially today against Rafa.

Berdych played well below his level, but FLopez gave a great show, lots of surprisingly solid backhands. Still with FloMay defeating Nadal, and Flopez's general inconsistency, I'll go with FloMay.

Rooting for Flo after his pristine performace today, so much is obvious. But whoever wins, I hope to see a cracker of a match with a lot of S/V! :drool:

Lopez will win in 2. The German has literally nothing to hurt Lopez with, who will win every service game comfortably :wavey:

Flo had nothing to hurt Nadal with as well. :wavey:

I hope that Flo will not make tons of mistakes like Berdshit yesterday, and his tactics should be based on tons of dropshots because Lalo movement is so poor.
