Feliciano Lopez - What does he have to do to get into top 20?

Such a good player. Very good serve, amazing at the net, solid baseliner. I am amazed that this guy isn't ranked higher (currently 42). I can't see any major flaws in his game (maybe mental strength), he's got the shots to be a top 20 player (maybe even higher), so I was just wondering what everyone thinks is stopping Lopez getting into top 20?

You must blink every time he hits a backhand.

jk. Seriously, that backhand side is what most often gets him into trouble and it is most often what causes him to lose a match.

...for a serious answer. We say it all the time, and it can still be said - his backhand. The slice is good, but he doesn't hit through the ball very well. Costa has improved it, but there is still work to be done.

I wouldn't say he is particularly solid from the back, either. When I saw some of his matches against Koubek and Wawrinka, last week, I'd always get the feeling he'd lose the majority of baseline rallies against those guys. I liked his attacking tennis, but he didn't do that as much as I'd have liked.

I know that David Ferrer had an amazing year and he comes as a favourite into the match against Lopez, but I really do feel that we will witness an upset. He played really well against Volandri, who I know isn't that good on indoor hardcoruts but still it was quite a performance.

Defeating Volandri on carpet isn't a big achievement. He needs backhand and mental stability. It can give him a chance

Re: Feliciano Lopez - What does he have to do to get into top 20?

but I do agree, maybe he should worry more about his game than how he looks on court!

hahahahah


he could probably start by not getting thoroughly outplayed by D.Y. at the U.S. Open

but yeah, in all seriousness obviously backhand

he could make into top 20 eventually - but he's not beating David "Pics" Ferrer
