Feliciano Lopez will give away more than two decades when he plays rising Spanish teenager Carlos Alcaraz in the second round of the new ATP event in Marbella.

The 39-year-old sixth-seeded veteran, who holds a second job as tournament director of the Madrid Masters, set up the clash with a 17-year-old countryman after beating Japan’s Taro Daniel 6-4, 6-4 on Tuesday.

Alcaraz, ranked 133rd, is tipped as a future contender after winning three Challenger titles last season and advancing to the second round  of February’s Australian Open.

The youngster who is playing on a wild card opened with a win in southern Spain,defeating Serb qualifier Nikola Milojevic 7-6(3), 6-3  in 98 minutes.

It marked the fifth victory of the season for the teenager.
