Albert Ramos-Vinolas vs Alejandro Tabilo: Prediction
Albert Ramos-Vinolas came into this tournament on the back of five consecutive defeats, but the sixth seed’s performance so far has been quite the turnaround. He has won all his matches in straight sets, including an upset over World No.23 Lorenzo Sonego in the quarter-finals. Whereas Tabilo’s run has been nothing short of spectacular either, the Chilean has won 12 consecutive sets in the tournament, starting all the way from the qualifiers.
Both the players haven’t dropped a set so far in the tournament, but the Spanish veteran has more experience compared to Tabilo, who will be playing in his first ATP Final. Ramos Vinolas has won three titles so far in his career and all of them have been on clay courts. Tabilo has already played six matches this week, so he might be a bit fatigued going into this match against the experienced Vinolas. The Spaniard might face a tough fight, but he has the chance to win it if he replicates the form he has shown thus far.
Prediction: Ramos-Vinolas to win in three sets.
