Los Cabos, Mexico 2016: Ivo Karlovic vs. Feliciano Lopez Championship Prediction

Ivo Karlovic vs. Feliciano Lopez

This should be a fun match.  Both men have played well since Wimbledon ended.  Ivo won a title on grass in Newport, Rhode Island and was runner-up on hard courts in Washington, DC. Lopez won a title on clay in Gstaad.  Ivo leads their head-to-head series 5-3, but they have not played since 2014.  There should be a lot of service holds in this match.  Lopez is more well-rounded than Ivo, but Ivo has one of the top 5 serves on tour.

My Prediction: Feliciano Lopez d. Ivo Karlovic 7-6, 6-7, 6-3
