Adrian Mannarino  v Feliciano Lopez Head to Head

The pair have met four times, and Lopez leads their head to head record by three matches to one. Lopez won all three of their meeting on hard courts, but, on their one encounter on grass at Wimbledon in 2017, Mannarino was able to advance in their first round match after Lopez had to retire with an injury.

Mannarino Finding Some Form on Grass

Mannarino, who won his only senior career title on the grass of Rosmalen in 2019, has finally found some form ion that surface after what has been a poor year by his standards so far.

Prior to Queen’s last week, he had lost all eight of his preceding matches in a sequence stretching back to Miami, but, although he lost to local man Dan Evans in London, he did at least beat his compatriot Liam Broady in the process first.

And now he finds himself in the quarter-fianl of an event for the first time in 2021, albeit in slightly fortunate circumstances.

He had enjoyed a good first-round win over the German Jan-Lennard Struff, the world number, 45, beating him in straight sets to earn himself a tie with Dominic Thiem.

The Austrian had just moved a break ahead when, attempting a forehand, the world number five injured his wrist, and he is now a major doubt for Wimbledon. His misfortune was Mannarino’s gain as Thiem was forced to retire immediately.

Evergreen Spanish Veteran Lopez

Lopez may now be 39, but he continues to enjoy his tennis, particularly on grass which has always been one of his favourite surfaces.

He won the title at Queen’s in 2017 and 2019, and also captured the doubles on the latter occasion as well. ,In addition, he has been three times a Wimbledon quarter-finalist and enjoyed sone of the biggest wins of his career at the All-England Club.

This is his third tournament on grass this year, and, having made the second round in both Stuttgart and Queen’s, he has now gone one better on home soil in Mallorca.

He benefitted from a  kind draw in the first round, beating compatriot and qualifier Nicola Kuhn in straight sets.

However, he was then pitted against Karen Khachanov of Russia, world ranked 29, and that proved to be a stiffer challenge, especially after the Russian took the first set.

Lope though did not panic, broke Khachanov early in the second set and then consolidated that with a  further break to level the match.

And then he overcame the loss of his own serve in the third set, breaking back straight away, and then with Khachanov serving to stay in the match, broke him again to love.
