Join us while we analyze what is the best play for our tennis picks for the ATP Metz quarterfinals that will take place this Friday.
Martin Klizan (6) vs Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (4)
Guillermo Garcia-Lopez really enjoys playing in Indoor conditions like he showed recently this year by winning Zagreb title. Garcia-Lopez is extremely solid from both sides and can play at high intensity which is very effective on this game conditions.
The Spanish had a tough first match against Pierre-Hugues Herbert losing the first set but kept the composure winning 4 -6 6-2 6-4 not facing a single break point after the first set.
Martin Klizan is a very dangerous player with a massive left-handed forehand however he’s mentally very fragile and also extremely erratic. Despite being able to produce outstanding level of tennis Klizan also makes a large number of unforced errors and that lack of consistency is usual fatal for him.
Klizan plays his best tennis on clay where he has more time to prepare his forehand and do the runaround however with his dangerous groundstrokes he can be competitive in any surface and showed that this week defeating Paul-Henri Mathieu and Vasek Pospisil.
The key for this match is clearly Garcia-Lopez consistency and ability to play at a high pace that won’t give the time Klizan likes to prepare his groundstrokes. With less time the Slovakian will try to shorter the points and go to the winner but that should result in errors that might cost him the match.
