2019 INDIAN WELLS R1 l. to Feliciano Lopez
INDIAN WELLS Calif. | Friday, March 8, 2019 In a tightly-contested battle of grizzled ATP Tour veterans, Feliciano Lopez (37) took on Tomas Berdych (33) in opening round action. With almost 40 years of combined tour experience and 14 previous matchups under their belt, the pair reacquainted during a picture-perfect day in Tennis Paradise. In a seesaw affair in which neither player could jump out in front, the Spaniard edged Berdych in consecutive tiebreaks for a 7-6(3), 7-6(2) victory. While the always-game Berdych put up a strong fight, Lopez played mistake-free tennis in both tiebreaks to stamp his ticket into the second round of the 2019 BNP Paribas Open.
