Lucas Pouille vs. Feliciano Lopez - 2020 Ultimate Tennis Showdown
Sunday, June 14 2020
Feliciano Lopez meets Lucas Pouille in their first match at the Ultimate Tennis Showdown. Both players will now face a tougher opponent in their first match as they cannot use their experience as much to their advantage. Who will come out on top, the Spaniard or the Frenchman?
Feliciano Lopez had an incredible 2019 season, rejuvenating his career with an important Men's Singles and Men's Doubles title win at the Queen's Club in London. Lopez showed us that age is just a number and that on his day, he is very hard to beat on any surface. Lopez's best asset I would say is his lefty forehand. Lopez can serve to his opponents' weak side with ease and make sure they stay on their backhand in long rallies. Lopez has a lot of experience and is one of the oldest players on the tour. Will all of this experience help Lopez here at the Ultimate Tennis Showdown, or will some of the youngsters outperform him?
Lucas Pouille has not had much success in the last couple of years. Pouille came onto the tour with a lot of promise and he has not been able to live up to the hype. Pouille is a good player and has strong fundamentals when it comes to tennis, however, he is not as good as he could be. Pouille has most likely been working on ensuring he has a redemption season, and his appearance here at the Ultimate Tennis Showdown will allow him to prove his doubters wrong. Pouille could be one of the best Frenchmen on tour if he is able to find both consistency and new levels in his well-rounded game.
Shockingly, the H2H between these two players is quite one-sided. Lucas Pouille leads the H2H 4-1, with his latest win being a year ago in Stuttgart in a tight 3 setter. Pouille's performances have gone down since that match, and Lopez has gone up. These two players will put on a show, but I believe that at the moment Lopez is the better player and he will use his experience to his advantage.
Feliciano Lopez to win.
