Johnson is 55th player in the world which is slightly worse ranking compared to its best rating since the end of last season when he was at the 37th position, but it is also much better than in the period before the start of last year's Roland Garros. As for the results of this season, we can say that the two best performances was at home in Memphis and Derlay Beach, where he played the quarter finals where they were better than him and Anderson Karlovic.
Garcia-Lopez is number 27 on the ATP list, which is only four positions lower than his best rating of 2011, when the 23rd player in the world. In his career he managed to win five ATP titles of which two of this season, but now we can say that this is also his most successful season. Until this year's title came in tournaments in Zagreb and Bucharest, and in the final matches won Seppia and Vesely.
This is the first meeting of the two players, and enumerated achievements speak in favor of Garcia-Lopez was better during this season, and that is especially true of tournaments on clay, but we believe that the Spaniard should not lose more than one set in this match.
