In the tournament so far, she has defeated Marcos Giron in the first round before beating the big gun Denis Shapovalov in the second. He beat Shapovalov in three sets 6-4 2-6 6-4.
Albert Ramos Viñolas vs Corentin Moutet: Head to Head

Albert Ramos Viñolas vs Corentin Moutet: Prediction
Moutet pulled off the coup of the week when he defeated top seed Denis Shapovalov. But that was more due to the error riddled performance by Shapovalov and his inability to show patience in long rallies. Viñolas is an experienced campaigner who thrives on such long rallies, on clay. He will give nothing away and make life tough for the twenty-two year old Frenchman.
Match Prediction: Albert Ramos Viñolas to beat Corentin Moutet in three sets.
