Casper Ruud

For Ruud, this is only the third clay tournament of the season. Before that, he played in Buenos Aires, where he managed to take the title. In the capital of Argentina the Norwegian showed an excellent game. In five matches, he lost only one game, and in the final he defeated Pedro Sousa (6-1, 6-4). After that, Casper also went to Rio de Janeiro, where he could not deal with Gianluca Mager (6-7, 5-7).

In Santiago, Ruud wins, but it is difficult to say that the wins were easy. In the matches with Alejandro Tabilo and Federico Delbonis, he had to make a lot of efforts to win. He beat the Chilean with a score of 6-4, 7-5, and the Argentinean with a score 7-5, 7-5.

He was a part of the Norwegian Davis Cup team in 2015, and together with countryman Viktor Durasovic made sure Norway was promoted from Group Three Europe Zone to Group Two Europe/Africa Zone. In the 2016 Davis Cup, Ruud and Durasovic lost 3–2 to Lithuania in the first round. In the play-offs they beat Luxembourg 3–2 to stay in the Group Two Europe/Africa Zone. Norway remained in Group Two Europe/Africa Zone in 2017 and 2018 before they in 2019 won their tie against Georgia securing them a place in the play off for World Group I as a result of the changes in the Davis Cup format.

Albert Ramos-Vinolas

It’s not easy for Ramos to achieve the results in South America. So far, the semi-finals in Santiago are considered to be his best performance this year. Before that, he also played in the quarter finals of Cordoba, where in three sets he lost to Pablo Cuevas (4-6, 6-4, 4-6).

In the capital of Chile, the Spaniard is quite successful. He still has not lost a single set here. First, Albert defeated the Peruvian Patino-Samudio (7-6, 6-2), and then defeated Tiago Monteiro (6-4, 6-4), who was in a great condition.

Also it is essential to notice the fact that Albert Ramos-Vinolas is a completely leader in head to head meetings. Players spent 4 games against each other and all of them finished with Albert’s win. Perhaps, Ramos-Vinolas will continue the tendency.

Ruud vs Ramos-Vinolas Predictions

Last year in Kitzbuhel Ramos showed his best game of the season. Then it was hard to stop him. But now Albert does not look so confident, so we believe that his rival Casper Ruud is ready to give a tough fight to the opponents. We predict that the nearest meeting will be impressive and quite long.
