Feliciano López

Preview:
This is a match between Sousa y Lopez, for the 1st round of the Queens ATP 500, a grass tournament played in London. Nadal and Murray are the best players present at this tournament.

Analysis of João Sousa

João Sousa, a Portuguese 26 year old, standing 1.85m tall, prefers clay. Currently he is in the 44th position of the ATP Ranking and is clearly not the favourite in this match.

João has got, as his main weapons, his fighting spirit, the ability to cover the entire field through his speed and mobility and the fact that he never gives up on a point. He usually tries to build his points from the bottom of the pitch, using his right hand. At this point of this career, he is able to play at a good level in all sorts of pitch, he has improved his service and he is stronger in his service points.

Sousa has had an interesting season for a player of his level, alternating between good and not so good performances in tournaments. His best results so far were in Montpellier, in which he reached the semi-final and the Geneva clay, in which he lost in the final against Bellucci.

Analysis of F. López

Feliciano Lopez, a 33 year old Spanish player, standing 1.88m tall, prefers grass. He is currently in the 14th position of the ATP Ranking and has got more than enough quality to win this match, but should expect to work hard for the win.

Feliciano is an experienced player and is aware of what he needs to do to win this match. His style is perfect for grass, since he has got a good service, knows how to rise to the net and uses a slide stroke that is very hard for the opponents. He will win easily, should he play at his usual level.

Lopez has had an acceptable season so far. He got a good result at the Australia Open and at the Indian Wells 1000, apart from the final at Quito. But the beginning of the clay season affected his results negatively, so he wishes to take advantage of the grass tournaments to recover.

Betting suggestion:

Lopez’s style is difficult to face, particularly on grass. We don’t expect Sousa to be able to resist his service, should it be at a good level. On the other hand, Lopez hasn’t got the same speed anymore, so he is likely to face problems against a player known to be a specialist at moving about the field and making his opponents run. Sousa has evolved a lot and usually plays at a good level in all sorts of pitch, so he has got good chances of forcing a tie break.
