Second round match on men tennis Olympics tournament. On these odds where the chances by the bookies are almost 50-50, I simply must go with Juan Monaco since IMO he should be the one who is clear favourite in this match. In first round I was right in matches of both of these two players. My pick on Monaco against Goffin was easy winner while the same was with over games in meeting between Feliciano Lopez and Dmitry Tursunov. As it was expected, Lopez was in trouble against Russian player and barely won after 9-7 in third set. It is clear that Lopez is not in too good form. Tursunov at this moment is not too strong opponent but Lopez had big problems to beat him. Maybe fact that Lopez found out too late (after Nadal decided not to play) that he will have chance to compete on Olympic games, is the reason for his weaker form. Lopez had little time to prepear for this tournament.
On the other side, Monaco is in amazing form thanks to which he entered into top 10. He was very successful on recent tours and I believe he will be also now in London. Grass is not his favourite surface, that is correct but far from it that Lopez likes too much to play on it either. Also note that Lopez had really tough and long match yesterday while Monaco spent much less time on the court.
