Alexei Popyrin vs. Feliciano Lopez - 2020 Ultimate Tennis Showdown
Saturday, June 13 2020
A veteran of the game meets an up and coming youngster. Feliciano Lopez replaces Felix Auger-Aliassime in the match against Alexei Popyrin as FAA had to withdraw due to injury. Who will come out on top, experience, or youth?
Feliciano Lopez had an amazing 2019 season. After signs that he would retire or that he would not be able to play at levels he used to, Lopez found form again at the Queen's Club in London, winning both the Single's title and the Double's title with Andy Murray. Lopez has lots of experience and knows how to win matches against young opponents. Lopez will want to come out and make the most of his time on the tennis court and show that he is still here to compete at a high level.
Alexei Popyrin is one of the most exciting up and comers on tour. Popyrin is yet to make a name of himself, but I am sure his time is coming. Popyrin is energetic, flamboyant, and has a lot of potentials. The only aspects which he needs to work on are his mental game and his ability to win big points. Popyrin was good against top players like Medvedev at the Australian Open this year, and although he lost, he showed great promise.
This will be the first meeting between both players and this match goes one way in my opinion. Popyrin is great and has amazing potential, but he lacks the experience. Feliciano Lopez will know what to do to win the important points and take advantage of a less experienced opponent. This match might be a 3-setter, but in the end, Lopez should take it.
Feliciano Lopez to win.
