Diego Schwartzman v Albert Ramos Vinolas Head to Head
There have been four previous matches between these two player and Schwartzman has won every single time. What’s interesting to note is all those matches were on clay and Schwartzman is yet to drop a set to Ramos-Vinolas, having faced just one tie-breaker across those eight sets. A one-sided rivalry this then.
Schwartzman Beginning to Find His Own
It was a brutal start to the season for the Argentine as he careened from one defeat to another at the ATP Cup. Barring a shock, 6-2, 6-2 win over Borna Coric, Schwartzman lost three matches in the competition, including to Dominic Thiem, Daniil Medvedev and Hubert Hurkacz.
The good news for Schwartzman is he looked to have turned things around at the Australian Open after that, winning his first three rounds in straight sets to march into the last eight. There, facing the eventual winner and world number one Novak Djokovic, he went out fighting.
The world number 14 loves the clay surface too, having won all but one of his 19 titles across the ATP, Challenger and Futures circuit on the red dirt. And after a first round bye, faced with a stiff opponent in the form of Jaume Munar, he came through unscathed 6-1, 7-5. At one stage he held a 3-0 lead in the second set, then was level 5-5 before coming through in straight sets.
Ramos Vinolas Comes Through in a Gruelling Match
When Ramos Vinolas took on Pablo Andujar in the second round, things were expected to become difficult for both players. And as expected, and as we had predicted, the match went to a third set and 7-5 in the final set.
The good news for Ramos Vinolas was he managed to reduce the deficit on head to head against Andujar, winning his fifth match against the fellow Spaniard to go with 11 defeats. And that win should give him bit of a pep going into this encounter. Earlier, he had beaten Facundo Bagnis in straight sets.
What Ramos Vinolas would want here, however, is find an opening, a weakness he can look to exploit to be able to hold his own. Because when you go up against a guy who has never dropped a set to you, a 41-21 record on clay – as was the case last season for him – doesn’t do much to help.
