Albert Ramos-Vinolas: Team form, news and statistics
Albert Ramos Vinolas is a 32-year-old Spaniard, ranked 46th in the ATP.
And Ramos is a good athlete, who was in the past until the 17th place in the world, who has trophies in Bastad and Gstaad, these being in fact his only ATP titles.
But Albert played tennis for most of his career, also helped by the fact that he is clumsy, being a specialist in slag.
Lately, however, his pace has slowed down, as he is not so old but seems to be at the end of his career.
In 2019 he has quarterfinals in Buenos Aires, quarterfinals in Rio de Janeiro, quarterfinals in Geneva, quarterfinals in Lyon challenger, semifinals in Perugia challenger, semifinals in Bastad, title in Gstaad, final in Kitzbuhel, semifinals to the Genoa challenger, semifinals to the Szczecin challenger and semifinals to Zhuhai.
And in 2020 he has the quarterfinals in Adelaide, the quarterfinals in Cordoba, the semifinals in Santiago and the quarterfinals in Sardinia.
Ramos is in poor form from the return, for example in Kitzbuhel losing in the first round with Djere, in Rome in the first round with Nishikori, and in Sardinia being clearly dominated by Cecchinato.
He recently had an indoor match in Antwerp, losing in the first round 5-7 5-7 to Zizou Bergs after a very modest match on his side.
Marcos Giron: Team form, news and statistics
Marcos Giron is a 27-year-old American, ranked 86th in the ATP.
And Giron has not had a very bright career so far, having some moments of sparkle but generally playing in the challenger circuit.
Now he is old enough for performance, so I expect at least 2-3 years to stay in the top 100 in the world, he still has a good game.
He lacks consistency, being often very oscillating between tournaments, in fact having level fluctuations even during a match. If you solve them, it will increase both in the rankings and as a result.
Giron is short, having 1.8m, but he has a good movement on the field due to his low center of gravity, being often aggressive.
In 2019 he has the title of the Orlando challenger, the semifinals of the Cleveland challenger, the quarterfinals of the Dallas challenger, the quarterfinals of the Monterrey challenger, the semifinals of the Sarasota challenger, the quarterfinals of the Aptos challenger, the final of the New challenger Haven, quarterfinals to the Las Vegas challenger, quarterfinals to the Charlottesville challenger and title to the Houston challenger.
And in 2020 he has the semifinals at the Bendigo challenger, the quarterfinals at the Indian Wells challenger and the quarterfinals at Antwerp.
Giron comes after some good indoor tournaments, in Cologne 1 being defeated by Cilic but after 3 sets, then in Antwerp passing by Goffin, affected by coronavirus, until he clearly loses to De Minaur.
🔺Here:– 6-4 6-1 with Baena (100th place ATP), winning 83% balls with the first service, 43% with the second, offering 5 break points (4 saved)
– 7-6 7-6 with Djere (54th place ATP), winning 81% balls with the first service, 57% with the second, offering 2 break balls

Albert Ramos-Vinolas vs Marcos Giron Pont: Marcos Giron punishes
Albert Ramos-Vinolas looks pretty bad since returning, having almost exclusively weak tournaments, including on slag, the surface on which he is a specialist. Indoor played only one game, in Antwerp, losing in two sets with Zizou Bergs, a match in which he served poorly. Marcos Giron is in good shape, he already has some solid indoor tournaments including the quarterfinals in Antwerp where he passed Goffin. In addition, he has the advantage that he played qualifications here, entering a good rhythm, especially since he served well there and did not give up any set. I thus consider that Giron is the favorite, my prediction going on his victory at a odds offered by Betano.
