Garcia-Lopez vs Lamine Ouahab by Tennisguy
This is a round of 16 match from the Casablanca ATP tournament(clay) between Guillermo Garcia-Lopez from Spain and Lamine Ouahab from Morocco.
They have only played once in a match that took place in 2003 at the Valladolid challenger(hard) which was won by Garcia-Lopez 6-3, 6-4.
I am going with the underdog in this one because to me he has been playing very good tennis this year on clay so I think he will be more prepared for this surface. The reason I say he will be more prepared is because Garcia-Lopez hasn't played a clay court match in 2015 so he won't be properly adjusted and I don't see him doing well here.
Ouahab is 23-1 on clay this year and after his great performance in the first round where he easily defeated Haase 6-2, 6-4 I think he can repeat that against Garcia-Lopez . Sure the spaniard has had good results here in the past and is actually the defending champion from last year but when he did win it he had matches on clay under his belt before the tournament which is not the case now.
In my opinion if Ouahab plays like he did in his match against Haase I think he can get the win and along with the crowd support that will surely back him u the entire match, a surprise is waiting to happen here.
