Feliciano Lopez v Daniel Altmaier Head to Head
There has been one previous meeting between these two players which came at the 2020 French Open. Altmaier won that opening round encounter in straight sets.
Veteran Lopez Continues to Struggle
Lopez has won just three matches this season, spread across seven tournaments. Two of those came at the Australian Open as he stormed into the third round with wins over Li Tu and Lorenzo Sonego but since losing to Andrey Rublev in that match, things have gone rather awry for the Spaniard.
He lost four matches in a row, which included defeats at the hands of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga who is himself in a form rut, and Miomir Kecmanovic and Alexei Popyrin.
An opening round victory at the Marbella Open might have provided some relief but the 39-year-old then fell again to Carlos Alcaraz and Lorenzo Musetti, resulting in a 3-7 win-loss record for the season.
Last year, Lopez had won seven of the 11 main draw matches he played in, including a Challenger, and adding 2019 underwhelming performances, the Spaniard’s struggles have now extended to over two years already.
Things won’t be any easier against a qualifier here.
Altmaier Lucky to Make Main Draw
Altmaier would have been on his way back home – or to the next competition – after losing his second round of qualifier to Marco Cecchinato on Monday. As it turned out, the withdrawal of Cristian Garin has given him a second chance.
And as luck would have it, he faces a player whom he has beaten in recent past and one whose own form struggles have been well-chronicled.
Because Altmaier himself has seen some major worries in recent times. Other than making it to the quarterfinal at the Concepcion Challenger in February, Altmaier’s only performance of note came at the Santiago Challenger where he won a round.
Other than that, there have been no main draw wins and that is bit of a surprise given Altmaier had finished the previous season with a career-best fourth round appearance at the French Open. And that too, after making it there as a qualifier.
Can he stall his poor run this season with a win over Lopez?
Lopez v Altmaier Prediction and Tip
Interesting to note Altmaier has been tipped to win this by bookmakers with odds of 4/6 for his victory as compared to 6/5 for a Lopez win. Going with Lopez to carve out a victory for this one.
