In 2019, Caruso at that time played at various challengers in Europe. Over the year, the Italian significantly added and even managed to gain a foothold in the first hundred of the rating. Now Salvatore is on the 93rd line and is not going to stop there.
In the new season, Caruso won only one match. In qualifying for Adelaide, the representative of Italy beat Mark Polmans (4-6, 7-5, 6-3). But after that, Salvatore lost to Federico Delbonis (6-7, 6-7), Jan-Lennard Struff (4-6, 2-6) and Stefanos Tsitsipas (0-6, 2-6, 3-6).
Ramanathan never rose above the 111th line in the world ranking. As a rule, he performs in challengers and cannot boast of anything special. In Pune, he regularly takes part. Still, this tournament is taking place in his homeland. In 2019, he took off in the second round of these competitions, losing in three sets to Malek Jaziri.
It is worth noting that at the end of the year he also played on the challenger in this city. This time he reached the semifinals, losing to James Duckworth.
So far, Ramanathan has not impressed with his game in 2020. On account of the Hindu, only a victory over Go Soeda and JC Aragone. But in the qualification for AO, he lost even the dirt road Korya.
Statistics and personal meetings
- In full-time meetings, the score is 2-0 in favor of Caruso.
- In two full-time matches, at least 22 games were played.
- In 3 of the last 4 matches of Ramanatan, at least 22 games were played.
Caruso is a more skilled player. Compared to Ramanathan, he acts better in the game on the back line. Ramkumar is not strong in the rallies and builds his entire game around a strong pitch. Because of this, most of the matches of the representative of India are protracted.
Ramanathan’s tactics are unlikely to bring him success in this match. For some time this will allow him to stay afloat, but the final victory should go to Caruso. Although it is possible that the match will not be easy for the Italian.
- Our prediction – the victory of Salvatore Caruso
