Day 5 Preview: Feliciano Lopez “El Torero” vs Stefanos Tsitsipas “The Greek God”
The Greek God was the only undefeated player at UTS until late Sunday evening, when Dominic Thiem sent him back to earth with a thud. Today The Torero Feliciano Lopez will look to continue that trend and send Stefanos Tsitsipas all the way to the underworld.
38-year-old Lopez has been a worthy adversary in each of his four UTS tilts, and if it wasn’t for a sudden death loss to David Goffin on Sunday he’d be tied with Tsitsipas at the top of the table.
Tsitsipas may be 17 years younger than Lopez but the Greek God hopes to be the one doling out lessons during their first ever meeting… Ever the perfectionist, Tsitsipas was not happy with his play or his use of the cards last weekend and he’s determined to raise his level against the Spaniard today.
Both players will come out swinging. Both are hungry to stake a claim at the Top of the UTS table. It will come down to the one who will have the guts to come up big when it matters most.
