    Points won by each set: | 36-35, 32-25, 32-24 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    34 % Lopez – 30 of 87
    18 % Youzhny – 18 of 97

    Youzhny led 4:2* in the 2nd set. At 4:3 (15/0) he was involved in a very demanding rally running all over the place and it cost him a lot of energy – lost quickly four straight games since then. In the decider Lopez led 5:2*, but committed two double faults serving to win the match, in the following game he broke the Russian to 30 converting his first match point.

    The 33-year-old Lopez reaches his career-high (No. 14) thanks to victory… two years ago he was ranked 15.
    Both guys have played the most main-level tournaments among active players (not counting semi-retired Nikolay Davydenko): Youzhny – 333, Lopez – 322
