10-KAREN KHACHANOV

Age: 23

ATP Ranking: 9 (Highest ranking: 9)

Grand Slam titles: 0

2018 Wimbledon performance: Fourth round

Best Wimbledon performance: Fourth round (2018)

Khachanov broke into the top 10 of the world rankings this year on the back of a quarter-final run at the French Open and will look to improve his record against Lopez.

The pair have played each other twice previously with Khachanov winning both matches, played on hardcourts.

FELICIANO LOPEZ

Age: 37

ATP Ranking: 54 (Highest ranking: 12)

Grand Slam titles: 0

2018 Wimbledon performance: Second round

Best Wimbledon performance: Quarter-finals (2005, 2008, 2011)

The Spaniard came into Wimbledon full of confidence after claiming both the singles and doubles titles (with Andy Murray) at the Queen’s Club championships.

The vastly experienced Lopez, who eased past Marcos Giron in straight sets in his opener, is most comfortable on grass and has plenty of tricks up his sleeve to upset 10th seed Khachanov.
