As Feliciano Lopez and Jordan Thompson set their sights on a quarter-final spot, these are our predictions and tips for this match
Jordan Thompson to Win in Straight Sets
Jordan Thompson is the clear favourite for obvious reasons. The Australian player has dominated Feliciano Lopez in the past, winning all of their previous clashes. As a matter of fact, in four previous skirmishes between these players, Thompson dropped just one set. It’s also important to point out that although Feliciano Lopez defeated Max Purcell in straight sets yesterday, he has not particularly been playing well lately. The Spaniard suffered five losses in a row prior to that match. Taking everything into account, we believe that Jordan Thompson will take this in straight sets.
Less Than 23 Total Games
Given that we are backing a straight sets victory for Jordan Thompson, it’s no surprise that we’re taking the under option here. Bear in mind that Feliciano Lopez turns 42 this year, it’ll be a tough task to keep up with a much younger Thompson. We’ve already established that Jordan Thompson won four of four previous skirmishes with Lopez; it’s also fair to point out that three of those encounters went below the projected total. That said, we are fairly confident that this match will go under 23 games.
Feliciano Lopez vs Jordan Thompson Preview
We’ve established our Feliciano Lopez vs Jordan Thompson predictions, it’s time to take a look at both players’ recent form.
Feliciano Lopez held his own against Max Purcell yesterday, hitting 11 aces en route to a straight sets victory. It’s important to point out, however, that yesterday’s win was Lopez’s first victory in six games. Worse still, the Spaniard will face a player he hasn’t beaten in four previous encounters; it’ll be interesting to see how he matches up against the Australian player.
On the other hand, Jordan Thompson maintained his perfect record against Richard Gasquet with a straight sets victory over the French player in the first round. The 29 year old has had a fairly decent run of form lately, winning six of his last eight singles matches. Thompson will look to keep his 100 percent record against Feliciano Lopez intact as he takes on the Spaniard today.
