When I watched a singles partido between these two a couple years ago, my thoughts were that if jai-alai were more like tennis, where the predominate format is singles, and the prize money and associated endorsements were thru the roof, then Lopez would find the right coach and training program to elevate his singles play considerably.

As things stand, the career fronts have incomparably more experience with serving, catching the pelota up close, including rebotes, and fine-tuning all their kill shots. The potential leveling factor for top level backs is their power, but when you get a front with the big physique of Goiko, that edge is neutralized, and you are left with a match-up of the front court factors I listed.

So I thought that Lopez might actually be better in that hypothetical scenario where singles reigned supreme. The play (from what I translated) in this match-up doesn't exactly undermine my position.
