"When you beat players like John, when you go through a difficult match like this, you have to be proud of yourself," said Lopez, who hit 34 aces and saved the only two break points he faced. "To beat Johnny on that court is such is difficult task."
"This was a big win for me," Lopez said. "I played Andy so many times and he always beat me. It was so important for me to win today. Even though he beat me before, to beat him at Wimbledon is the most special. I'm happy to pay him back here on this wonderful court."
