    Lopez earns spot in semifinal with win over Verdasco Feliciano Lopez advanced to the semis in Eastbourne with a defeat of countryman Fernando Verdasco.

    Feliciano Lopez defeated compatriot Fernando Verdasco in miserable conditions in Eastbourne. Rain and fog delayed play, making the court soggy and slick. Lopez handled the poor weather better than his countryman, taking the quarterfinal win 6-4, 7-6(6).

    Lopez's serving helped him into the semis. The world No. 39 served up 14 aces in 2 sets. He faced a pair of break points, but Verdasco was unable to convert.

    After the match, Verdasco was asked about his complaint to the chair umpire about the slippery conditions. "I just saw it on them and I said, ‘OK, if you want us to play like this, we will play like this, but then after, if somebody get hurt, who is responsible of this?’ Because the ATP is not going to be responsible of us getting hurt because the court is not good.”

    They played on anyway and Lopez and his serve prevailed. Lopez will take on Ivan Dodig in the semifinals.
