Very entertaining match between two contrasting styles. Dog of a game LaLo played to get broken.

Ferrer what a warrior.

Shanghai SF: Ferrer beats F-Lopez 6-7(5), 6-3 6-3

Feli's last game made me wonder if I was watching Nando :mad:.

Oh well, good tourney.

11 aces by Ferrer... Deliciano should be among the top 3 of best returners.

Bad match up on the surface for Ferrer, but he is just too ballsy and strong minded, compared to Lopez.

Contrast... that's the word —damn, how I miss those days... :(

An excellent match, ruined by a very poor service game late in the third. :hug:

David – best of luck in the final. :yeah:

Lopez 7-1 H2H against Ferrer on hardcourts. But Ferrer is a much more clutch player in tense situations, and has good memories of that court, reaching the TMC final in Shanghai a few years back.

In the end, the reality of being close to a Masters 1000 final got too much for Lopez, I think, with that horror game with 3DFs to hand the decisive third set break over. Ferru served it out comfortably.

Until that point it was a very nice, entertaining match with some good points and as much of a clash of styles as you're ever likely to see these days. The lighter ball meant Lopez was able to attack the net with great success as long as he hit good approaches and volleys, while Ferrer was able to dominate the baseline and do his best to pin Lopez back.

Very good fun, just a shame Lopez threw in that mental meltdown at the end.

how can a player make 3DF's like this? ridiculous.
Calleri served 4 in a row, hence in our league when you serve 4 in a row it's called a "calleri",

LaLo is fodder for Murray, whereas Ferrer will give him more of a battle.
