Ymer lost the first set and was serving just 50% of his first serve. A significant improvement in that area saw the Swede serve 72% which led him to win the second set and went on to win the third.

Feliciano Lopez looking for a hattrick of two wins in a row this year

39-year-old Feliciano Lopez, probably playing in his last days as a professional player, has won seven titles in his career, four of them on grass and two on hard court. Lopez’s only win on clay was in Gstaad where is will face Mikael Ymer in the second round on Wednesday.

The Spaniard has won back-to-back matches just twice this year. The first one was in the Australian Open and the second was in Mallorca on the grass which is Lopez’s favorite surface and where he has the best win/loss record in his career. Lopez beat Huesler of Switzerland in the first round after the swiss retired in the third set.

  • The number of games per set played by Lopez is 9.94
  • Lopez has won 70% of the points on his first serve

Mikael Ymer vs Feliciano Lopez Prediction

It hasn’t been the best of seasons for both players. Ymer has a much better record on clay than with 7-5 than Lopez who has won three matches and lost five.

Ymer is the better player on clay and will use his powerful forehand to move Lopez around the court as much as possible and not let him come to the net where he can be very dangerous.

Lopez has played many tournaments on clay over the years and the fact that his only title was here in Gstaad, must mean something to him as he may be playing in his last year.

Mikael Ymer is the favorite to win the match and Vbet is offering odds of 1.63.
