Lopez vs Ginepri by Tennisguy
This is a first round match from the Houston ATP tournament between Feliciano Lopez from Spain and Robby Ginepri from USA.
Feliciano Lopez is ranked 31 and Ginepri is 329. Even if these rankings are so far apart I don't think that that should reflect the difference between these two players. I say this because last year Ginepri played a very good tournament here and lost in the QF against Monaco and was in the same situation as he is today.
These players have met 2 times in the past with the score being 1-1. Once match was played on clay in 2007 in the Madrid Masters tournament and Ginepri actually won that match 6-1, 3-6, 6-3.
This is a risky bet but it might just pay up if Ginepri find the same for he did last year in this tournament. He already played 3 matches here in the qualif. rounds so he is definitely more familiarized with the surface and conditions. He usually serves very well and end up with easy points when he is in a good form.
Lopez is a very good player but he hasn't really played a lot of matches last year on clay. He was 6-5 on clay last year and I don't know how prepared he will be coming in to this match. Sure he is the favorite to win here but I think he is going to have a hard match and a surprise can happen.
I think given that Ginepri really likes to play here in Houston and adding the fact that Lopez hasn't played any clay court matches for about 7 months, could result in a surprise outcome.
