The Line: -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
David Ferrer and Marc Lopez were both once exceptional singles players. The Spanish pair is now much older and doubles is now a much more realistic title winning option for both players. They will begin their Wimbledon campaign against a team comprised of Dutch player Jean-Julien Rojer and Pakistani player Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi. This is expected to be one of the best round 1 matches at Wimbledon.
Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi and Jean-Julien Rojer are the ninth seed in this tournament and they will have hopes of making it far in the competition. The duo have not been in good form and although they made it to a semi-final at ATP Stuttgart, they have not lived up to what is expected of them. Wimbledon will be a great chance for the pair to return to the top of the tennis world. They are unlucky that they have been drawn against a strong duo in David Ferrer and Marc Lopez but a team like Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi and Jean-Julien Rojer are expected to win.

While David Ferrer and Marc Lopez are both brilliant players, neither have had big results on the doubles circuit together. Marc Lopez is an accomplished doubles player but David Ferrer is still adjusting to sharing a tennis court with a teammate. This lack of chemistry is something that needs to be sorted out and if that can happen, the Spanish pair have every chance of winning the entire tournament. It is also important to note that David Ferrer is also playing the singles event which might cause fatigue.
All in all, I am going to predict that Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi and Jean-Julien Rojer wins this match. They are more suited to the doubles game and that means that they should get the job done. While it is important to acknowledge the talent of David Ferrer, he is not an established doubles player and that is what will be the difference. As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a great price to wager on Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi and Jean-Julien Rojer to be victorious so that is the best bet.
