Feliciano Lopez has reached the quarter-finals of the 2015 US Open, his first eve quarter-final collected in New York, which ties his best ever Grand Slam result, with 3 appearances into the last 8 reached at Wimbledon in the years.
Next for the Spaniard will probably be Novak Djokovic. Speaking of the World No.1 Feliciano explained to the media what players feel when they go on court against the Serb. "When Novak plays good, you don't know what to do to be honest.
He really has no weaknesses in his game. I will just try to give my best, take the chances I get and also try to enjoy this match in the biggest court of the world, against the best player in the world. That really is just what I have to do." "In order to win I think I have to play aggressive and I have to play even better than what I did today against Fognini or the other day when I beat Milos Raonic.
If I am able to do it, which I don't really know considering how the level goes up and down these days on every round I play, then I have the opportunity to be a great challenge, I think." So when good players find themselves up against Novak in a good day, they feel like there is not much they can do to win the match and turn things around if they are losing.
That helps to realize the current dominance of the Serb, both with his tennis and psychological approach. If a player is winning against the World No.1 he would feel the pressure of knowing Novak can come back any minute playing better and better.
