Feliciano Lopez sets up a quarter-final clash with Andy Murray.

Picture

Feliciano Lopez set up a quarter-final clash with Andy Murray after saving two match points on the way to seeing off Lukasz Kubot in a five-set thriller. Kubot, ranked 49 places below Lopez, put himself on course for a shock victory when he took the first two sets – the second of which came after a tight tie-break. The Polish qualifier then had two chances to seal the match in a third-set tie-break, but squandered them both to lose the set. Buoyed after making his way back into the match, Lopez edged the fourth set to level the match and set up a thrilling finale. The match seemed poised to go on long in to the evening as both players held serve well until Kubot lost his service game in the 12th to hand Lopez a 3-6 6-7 (5/7) 7-6 (9/7) 7-5 7-5 win.
