Albert Ramos-Vinolas – Thomaz Bellucci Match Prediction | 12-09-2019 09:00

He beat Nicols Lapentti of Ecuador to win the sixth challenger of his career, and the second on his native soil. This result bumped Bellucci up to No. 37 in the world, the first time that Thomaz was ranked inside the Top 40 in the world in singles. He then followed his good form to win his second challenger title of the year, at the 2009 Copa Petrobras So Paulo in Brazil.

Tipsarevic has been improving his results since returning from injury, and hes had success in Madrid before, but Kokkinakis was clutch and won a third set tiebeak 7-4 to advance in three sets, after dropping the second set. Aussie young gun Thanasi Kokkinakis improved to a remarkable 13-0 in qualifying at the ATP level this year as he scored big wins over Matteo Viola and Janko Tipsarevic to qualify.

Cuevas should then do away with qualifier Nicolas Kicker (or qualifier Marco Cecchinato). In the quarters Albert Ramos, 4-2 in his last two clay court tournaments, is likely to be on the other side of the net. Despite Cuevas 4-1 h2h edge over Ramos, Ramos is in better form and I have him reaching the semifinals. Defending champion Pablo Cuevas isnt playing his best tennis, but young qualifier Arthur De Greef likely hasnt developed enough to beat him in round 1. Robredo just beat Fognini last week in BA, given he did so in straight sets, I have him winning for the second week in a row before falling to Ramos. Ramos opens with Stephane Robert, hell then face a veteran, either Fabio Fognini or Tommy Robredo in round 2.

Falla, who has been poor on ATP main drawclay over the past three seasons (4-13 since 2012), will have a chance to improve that record. He upset Sergiy Stakhovsky, and then beat Roberto Carballes Baena, a Spaniard, to qualify. The unseeded qualifiers were Alejandro Falla, a Colombian veteran (and lefty), and Luca Vanni, an Italian veteran having his career best year in pro tennis. Vanni, who had a miracle run to the Sao Paulo final as a qualifier not that long ago, beat Carlos Berlocq and then Nicolas Mahut in three sets to snap a four match losing streak and place himself in his first ever Masters 1000 main draw.

He then won his third career title at the Gstaad Open (his second trophy of the tournament) with a three set win over the same Janko Tipsarevi.[10] At the 2012 Summer Olympics, he was knocked out in the first round of the men's singles by Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Next came a first round at the BNP Paribas Open, though by November his ranking position was 33. In the Swiss Open he lost in three sets to World Number 1 Roger Federer in the second round of the tournament. After a few months without many significant results, including an elimination to Nadal in Wimbledon, he reached the semifinals at the Stuttgart Open losing to eventual champion and World Number 8 Janko Tipsarevi in three sets. He and teammate Andr S lost in the first round of the men's doubles to eventual gold medalists, the Bryan brothers.[4] At the Kremlin Cup Bellucci reached his first final in a hard-court tournament, losing to Andreas Seppi.

The Bosnian edged Copil 7-6 6-7 6-4 in the final, after upsetting both Philipp Kohlschreiber and Stan Wawrinka to reach the final. Basic was on the ropes in his opening round qualifying match against local player Alexander Lazov, and dropped a set against Marterer as well, but improved throughout the entirety of the week. Basic, a qualifier, also defeated Florian Mayer and Max Marterer in the main draw. He was rock solid on serve against Wawrinka and finally got the upper hand. Both Mirza Basic and Marius Copil had a shot at their maiden ATP title, and Basic came out ahead.

10 David Ferrer. Reached semifinal stage at the inaugural Quito Open, losing to eventual champion Victor Estrella Burgos. Lost seven matches in a row (So Paulo,Rio, Buenos Aires, Davis Cup, Indian Wells and Irving) respectively to Martin Klizan, Rafael Nadal, Paolo Lorenzi, Leonardo Mayer, Federico Delbonis, Simone Bolelli and Sergiy Stakhovsky. Bellucci began the year by losing in the first round of Auckland to Ji Vesel and had the same result at the Australian Open, despite taking a set from world no.

Monteiro opens with Gastao Elias after reaching the quarterfinals in BA. Sousa opens with qualifier Roberto Carballes Baena (2-1 h2h), with the winner of Casper Ruud and Brazils Rogerio Dutra Silva to follow. After reaching the final in Buenos Aires, Nishikori will big once more for a title on South American clay. The young Ruud is talented enough to win in round 1 over the journeyman RDS, but Sousa should reach the quarters before falling to Nishikori just like what happened last week on clay in BA. After taking on Bellucci in what should be a rowdy match, another Brazilian, Thiago Monteiro should follow. Nishikori is simply a better player than either Brazilian, his quarterfinal should be against Portugese #1 and BA quarterfinalist Joao Sousa.

The Kyrgios/Ramos winner will have an inside track to reach the quarters below Lopez, as they will face the winner of Filip Krajinovic/Alejandro Gonzalez. I have Ramos beating Krajinovic, and then Lopez to reach the semis. Krajinovic comes off a challenger semi on clay, while Gonzalez has lost two straight matches. Hes 2-0 against Lopez, and those were hard court wins, on clay, he should actually be the superior player as their seems to be a matchup issue there.

Ferrer has been in terrible form this season, posting just three wins, compared to three losses. The aging Ferrer leads the h2h 8-3, but Dolgopolov comes off the title in Buenos Aires and has won two of their last three meetings. Dolgo tends to struggle off of long, tiring weeks of tennis though, giving Ferrer an opportunity to kickstart his 2017 with a quality win. The shotmaker Dolgopolov is erratic in his own way, having struggled for months before winning in Buenos Aires.

He failed to defend his title at Santiago losing in the quarterfinals to Fognini. After reaching the quarterfinals in Auckland to start off the year, and losing a heartbreaking five set match to Jan Hernych in the second round at the 2011 Australian Open, Bellucci went through a relatively poor run of form. He then reached the quarterfinals at his hometown 2011 Brasil Open but played poorly and lost to eventual finalist Juan Ignacio Chela.

Playing style[edit]

Kyrgios has more talent, but Ramos skill on clay should give him the short term advantage to win this match, as Kyrgios works on developing his clay court abilities. A rising young gun, and next gen star, against an experienced, mid-level dirtballer, describes this matchup. Kyrgios doesnt have a lot of experience on clay, and its by far his worst surface, in fact he lost to another next-gen star, Elias Ymer in Barcelona in a third set tiebreak, Ramos comes off a disappointing loss to Pablo Andujar, but he qualified and Monte Carlo, and his form has been relatively good this year, all be it flaky.

I have the unseeded Almagro taking the title this week, thus hes the obvious dark horse pick, he has a h2h edge in most of his possible matchups, and this draw isnt that imposing. He has 12 previous ATP titles, and has reached 9 additional ATP finals, all of those have come on clay. Almagro has been a top player before, and the 29 year old has the ability to impose himself on this field if he plays well.
