In my standout match from yesterday at the Paris masters,it was the battle of the lefty Spaniards. Nadal started off very sluggishly double faulting on the opening game at 30-40 to hand Lopez the early brake. Rafa took a while to get going in this set, Lopez eventually winning it 6-4. Nadal summoned that famous tenacity of his to win the second on a tie break. He broke Lopez in his first serve game of the third and maintained the lead to win the third 6-4.
