You know, I might actually engage my brain and get Andy's form against Lopez right in a minute
. He has dropped one set to Lopez in six meetings - there, got it now
I think Andy is wise to be cautious, I think none of us would really take anything for granted, but I just think Andy has the edge. I'm thinking the first set might go on serve for a while, but then I can see Andy relaxing and getting a grip on the match. I think it will be interesting to see how Andy's game compares with Lopez now, because I think Andy is playing with more conviction now than ever before.
Is this article the one you mentioned Ruthie? http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2012/aug/31/andy-murray-feliciano-lopez-us-open?newsfeed=true
If it is, there is a particular paragraph about the way Andy is playing that I liked very much, and I think it's true, although I had never thought of it before.
I think if Andy has a dodgy start, perhaps due to playing on LA, or because he hasn't played for a couple of days, Lopez might just nick a set, but I don't see it to be honest.
Andy in straights.
