Now that the stage is set for another ATP World Tour Event final, the most obvious question is – can Feliciano Lopez hand Novak Djokovic his first defeat of the 2011? If we look into the stats and current form of top-seed Novak Djokovic then it appears like a Herculean task for the Spaniard, who is pitted against the crushing favourite Serbian. Both will lock horns with each other for the 2011 Serbia Open title.
World No. 2 Novak Djokovic will be looking to clinch his second Serbia Open title after he won its inaugural edition in 2009. Djokovic did not have to play in the semi-final, as his opponent and compatriot Janko Tipsarevic withdrew due to a right thigh injury. Interestingly, Novak Djokovic has also passed Ivan Lendl’s record of 25 consecutive victories to begin a year.
Undoubtedly, Feliciano Lopez has been pretty impressive in this tournament so far, as he beat Juan Monaco, Fernando Gonzalez, Albert Montañés and Filippo Volandri to his en-route to the final.
In head-to-head, Djokovic apparently leads with a 3-0. Well, Lopez can take some heart from the fact that all these wins were registered on hard courts. Recently they met in Dubai Open, earlier this year, where Djokovic rallied past the Spaniard in three sets.
Well, Djokovic is certainly enjoying a form of his life, but he cannot afford to be complacent against the Spaniard, who is a good player on red-soil.
