As part of the first round of the tournament in Auckland, Spanish tennis veterans Feliciano Lopez and Pablo Andujar will enter the court on January 13. Which of them will win the upcoming meeting? – read in our prediction.
Lopez this season has not yet appeared on the court in singles. Perhaps the Spaniard, who turned 38 at the end of last year, is saving his strength for larger tournaments.
However, in a pair Lopez played. In the ATP Cup final, Feliciano, together with Pablo Carreno-Busta, lost to the Serbian duo of Novak Djokovic and Victor Troitsky (3-6, 4-6) and thus they could not bring their team a decisive point in the key confrontation.
Andujar, too, is no longer young, but unlike Lopez, he is still 33 years old. So the Spanish tennis player should have strength at the beginning of the season. True, Pablo’s season began with a defeat.
In the opening match at the tournament in Doha, Andujar in two sets lost to his compatriot Fernando Verdasco (4-6, 3-6). For the match, Pablo completed only three aces and never reached break points.
Statistics and personal meetings
- For personal meetings, Lopez leads with a score of 3-1.
- Lopez is 61st in the ATP ranking, Andujar is 64th.
Feliciano Lopez and Pablo Andujar Game Prediction
Lopez this season has not played a single match in singles. Andujar, in turn, played one duel – in the first round of the tournament in Doha, Pablo lost to Fernando Verdasco (4-6, 3-6).
In terms of playing practice, Andujar should have a small, but an advantage, and since the last person went on an equal fight, we expect that in the upcoming match Pablo will be able to fight Lopez, who is a favorite among bookmakers.
Our prediction is the victory of Pablo Andujar
