WWW Wimbledon R1: [14] Lopez vs Nieminen

H2H is 6-2 Nieminen, and Shark has won every non-clay match between these two, but they have only played one time since 2009, and never on grass. Feli defends QF points here. Shark has been in poor form and isn't at his best on grass, so this should be a win for Feli, but what do you all think?

Re: WWW Wimbledon R1: [14] Lopez vs Nieminen

Both coming in poor form really. I'll be rooting for Nieminen since I like his game a lot more and, seriously, Lopez has to get back to his true ranking. No business for him being in the top 20 and for so long. Still one has to say he's the favourite considering his results on the surface and that will be Jarkko's main issue since he can outplay Lopez everywhere from the back of the court but, precisely, not so much on grass. Head says Lopez in 4.

I really want Jarkko to win, but his recent results say otherwise. Feli with his big lefty serve and volley will win in straights I think.
