Feliciano Lopez 2.46, Gilles Simon 1.67
Due to start at 1 pm.
Lopez leads their previous matches 6-3. Their last meeting was at Queens Club in June this year. He won on grass in a 3rd set tie break. He won their last 4 matches with 3 of them being on grass. Their only indoor match was in 2008 and went Simon’s way.
Overall results are close but favour Lopez in the last 12 months. Long term indoor results are a little better for Simon.
Simon reached the semi finals last week in Antwerp. He beat Tsonga in straight sets in the 2nd round. He has only won half his matches in 2019. He reached the quarter finals in Marseille in February.
The first half of 2019 wasn’t great for Lopez. He had some success on grass and took the title at Queens Club and that seemed to boost his confidence. He reached the 3rd round at the US Open. He beat Cameron Norrie last week and also lost to Wawrinka in 3 sets although took the deciding set to a tie break.
Some value on Lopez and I think we’ll see 3 sets. Lay Simon around 1.45 to 1.50 and remove liability at 1.90. Lay the set 1 winner.
