Thiago Moura Monteiro

Last year’s season Thiago won three ground level Challenger tournaments and broke into the TOP 100. Now Monteiro controls the 88th position in ATP. This season the Brazilian started successfully too: 14 wins / 6 losses. In early February 2020, the representative of Brazil won the tournament in Punta del Este (clay, Challenger, prize money: $54,160). At the current tournament Thiago defeated Leonardo Mayer (6-7, 6-3, 6-4) and Roberto Carballes Baena(6-1, 6-4).

Thiago is not bad at medium-range speed games, which fully reveal his ability to make sharp crosses from the forward, as well as sharp crosses from the backend counter. At the same time, Monteiro clearly lacks stability on the pitch, especially when it comes to the second entry. The latter is increasingly playing in favor of his opponents.

Albert Ramos-Vinolas

The Spanish athlete is 32 years old, he is in 45th place in the world ranking. Ramos prize pool is $7,369,230. Last year’s season was very successful for his level: 48 victories and the 33th place in the ATP ranking. In 2019, the Spaniard won the less prestigious Gstaad Ground Tournament (prizes: €524,340). At the current competition in Santiago Ramos, he performs for the first time. A native of Spain managed to defeat Juan Pablo Varillas here (7-6, 6-2).

The key to Ramos’ so confident victory was his reliable game at the reception. He was able to make deep backhauls under the back line over and over again, instantly taking control of the draw.
