Feliciano Lopez faces a player who, like him, has already played the best matches of his career long ago, the Frenchman Gilles Simon . Both are in the fall of their trajectories, and although Simon is two years younger, the numbers indicate that his decline is faster. It has only won seven games of fifteen this year, maintaining the service in 76.1% of the games and breaking a 24.1%. In the last twelve months, their numbers in the service are even worse, 73.1%.
It is not illogical that his level falls faster than that of Lopez. The players who endure most in the ATP are those who have a great service, and that is precisely the style of Spanish. The specialists in the rest begin to have many difficulties in the moment in which their statistics of serve decrease a little, and that is what happens to Simon.
Also, Simon is having a particularly bad time in clay in the last twelve months. It has only won 70.3% of its withdrawals, with 25.9% to the rest (96.2% combined). Those numbers keep you away from the top 50 of the ATP on clay. ‘Feli’ has won 12 of 18 matches on this surface in that period, with a combined percentage of 105.3%. These numbers make my model indicate to me that the quota that presents in the Exchange of Betfair has a lot of value.
