In Houston semifinals, we will go against John Isner again. He is being consistently most overrated player on ATP circuit and even if our bets against him are highly negative, it´s more a matter of bad luck as he has won many of these matches in the third set tiebreaker. There is not much to say as we have already explained everything in past. Most of his matches are really tight and only a few points usually decide. He has had enormous luck during the last seasons and it usually doesn’t matter who is he playing – all the matches are tight. Furthermore, he will play against Feliciano Lopez who defeated him at 2012 Australian Open. Lopez won in 5 sets but was clearly better on court and both sets he lost were in tiebreakers. Like many of the top Spanish players Lopez is left-handed, however unlike some of his compatriots he uses a single-handed backhand. Once during a Davis Cup match when Spain played the U.S., Jimmy Arias a commentator said that, "Lopez may have the weakest backhand of any top 50 player I've ever seen, maybe with the exception of Fernando Vicente". He will usually slice his backhand instead of opting for the topspin drive. He is known for his strong serve and ability to play balls repetitively on the baseline. He is also a confident net player and has been known to adopt the serve-and-volley routine of play during matches. He is a versatile player who plays well on all surfaces but he sometimes lacks consistency and he is not a typical fighting bull like his compatriots Nadal od Verdasco. On the other hand, he has a big potential and if he catch the first few games, he is definitely able to beat Isner for the second time this year. Anything above 2.8 is definitely worth taking for us.
