Marinko Matosevic just did decent tournaments for the beginning of the north-american tour on hard with comfortable wins against Smyczek, Estrella or Marchenko and losses against Isner and Hewitt so nothing shameful.
Here he is a lucky loser, indeed he failed during qualifications where he gave up yesterday, but no worries, he surely did it voluntarily because Nishikori withdrew just before his match so he was sure to enter the final table as seeded n°1 of qualifications.
I think that he has his chances to reach the second round because he is playing against Garcia-Lopez.
Of course it won't be easy because Garcia-Lopez is very solid on his baseline, but especially on clay, he can be solid too on hard but he is less efficient because it's more fast.
Anyway, I think that Matosevic has his chances, firstly because Garcia-Lopez didn't play on hard since the Masters 1000 of Miami so he will probably need some time to re-adapt to the surface, and also secondly because his shape of the moment isn't very good, indeed he just failed his last two tournaments on clay in Hamburg and Gstaad where he lost for his entrance while his tournament in Stuttgart wasn't very good too.
So I think that Matosevic will win this match, I try his win in 2 sets.
