Queen’s Club 2014: Dimitrov vs. Lopez Championship Prediction

[4] Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) vs. [10] Feliciano Lopez (ESP)

Lopez’s left-handed forward-looking game has him in this final.  He also won the only career meeting between the two finalists at the Queen’s Club in 2010.  Dimitrov is a different player from 2010 so I won’t put much stock in that match.  Dimitrov’s development has frustrated many fans who like his game.  He did not start to climb in the rankings by making a big splash. Rather, he climbed by winning a lot of challenger events.  He has one Grand Slam quarterfinal to his name.  He is in his fourth tournament final in the past 52 weeks. That is growth even if the growth is slower and less flashy than many (myself included) would have liked to see.  I think Dimitrov is a 60-40 favorite to take his 3rd title of 2014 and 4th title in the past 52 weeks.  I predict Dimitrov d. Lopez 6-4, 5-7, 6-2.
