Stefanos Tsitsipas v Albert Ramos-Vinolas Head to Head
The pair have met once before on the clay of Barcelona earlier this year, with Tsitsipas winning that encounter in straight sets.
Tsitsipas, Successful 2019 for Young Greek
21 year old Tsitsipas has had a very good year overall, winning two titles in Marseille and Estoril, and reaching another two finals, in Madrid, and Beijing, earlier this month, where he was beaten by Dominic Thiem. When that is stacked up with his semi-final appearances at the Australian Open, in the Masters events in Dubai and Shanghai, and at the Washington Open, then he can be satisfied with his year’s work, although he will still be nursing regrets about his first round losses in Wimbledon and Flushing Meadows.
Now he will be looking for a strong end to the year in the tournaments that remain, so that he can go into 2020 full of confidence.
Ramos-Vinolas, Enjoyed Some Success This Year
31-year old Ramos-Vinolas has a career high ranking of 17, achieved after he reached the final of the Monte Carlo Masters in 2017. Since then, he has had mixed fortunes, but enjoyed a purple patch in July, when he reached the semi-final in Bastad, Sweden. He then travelled to the Swiss Open in Gstaad, and won the event, his second ATP singles title, beating Cedrik-Marcel Stebe of Germany in the final. And then, the following week, he reached another final in Kitzbuhel, before going down to Dominic Thiem.
Those events were all clay court tournaments, and, as evidenced by the fact that all his career finals but one have been played on that surface, indicate where the strength of his game lies. However, he did reach the semi-final in Zhuhai last month, where he was beaten by Adrian Mannarino.
In his last tournament, the Shanghai Masters, he beat Marin Cilic in the first round before going out to Roger Federer.
Tsitsipas v Ramos-Vinolas Predictions & Tips
Tsitsipas is the overwhelming favourite to win this match at 1/5, whilst Ramos-Vinolas is priced at 9/2. Whilst the Spaniard has enjoyed some success this year, he is more at home on a clay court, so will start at a disadvantage in Basel. And given that Tsitsipas won their only previous meeting on the Spaniard’s favourite surface, all the signs point to a comfortable win for the young Greek.
Tip: Tsitsipas to win in straight sets: 4/7 11/10 at 888Sport
