• Lopez, Istomin in action in Eastbourne

    6/18/13 4:53 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Lopez, Istomin in action in Eastbourne Feliciano Lopez and Denis Istomin will take the court on the grass of Eastbourne as round one finishes up at the AEGON International.

    Feliciano Lopez vs. Jarkko Nieminen

    Finland's Jarkko Nieminen didn't have a great start to the grass court season. The Finn defeated Ryan Harrison in the first round at Queen's Club, but lost in his next match to British wildcard Daniel Evans.

    Lopez had a good run at Queen's Club. The Spaniard was forced to qualify for the event, and made it all the way to the round of 16 before going out to finalist Marin Cilic in three tight sets.

    The Spaniard has a decent game for grass, with his big serve-forehand combination. But after 5 matches at Queen's, fatigue may be a problem. Also, Nieminen has an impressive 6-2 record over Lopez.

    Prediction - Nieminen in 3.

    Denis Istomin vs. Ivan Dodig

    This will be the first main tour meeting between Denis Istomin and Ivan Dodig. Uzbekistan's Istomin had some good results earlier this winter, but the past few months have resulted in nothing but first and second round showings.

    Dodig had a run to the semis in Munich, but he only won 1 match at Queen's Club. Fortunately for him, Istomin has been equally unsuccessful on grass this year.

    Istomin is slightly higher ranked and naturally has a better game for grass. Istomin in straight sets.
