Adrian Mannarino vs Albert Ramos-Vinolas
Adrian Mannarino will play against Albert Ramos-Vinolas in a semifinal in Zhuhai and we got a lot of paid betting tips for this tournament. The game is on Saturday, 28 September and will not start before 10:00 UK.
Adrian Mannarino world number 61 is making a great tournament so far. He was favorite against Ze Zhang in the 1st round and won in 2 sets even though that he had to play tiebreak in the 1st set. That was not the case in the round of 16 where he faced Stefanos Tsitsipas who is world number 7 but the French beat him in 2 sets. Tsitsipas played on Laver Cup and flying from Switzerland to China for sure had to effect for his lose. That’s, of course, is not Mannarino problem who qualify for the quarterfinal where his opponent was Damir Dzumhur world number 93 but Adrian again was on the winning side with 2:0 sets. In his last tournament before flying to China the French lost from Egor Gerasimov in the round of 16 in Saint Petersburg.
Albert Ramos-Vinolas world number 46 was an outsider on all his matches in this tournament so far. In the 1st round, he faced Yoshihito Nishioka who is number 60 but the Spanish beat him 6-2, 6-1. In the round of 16, Miomir Kecmanovic from Serbia was his opponent but Ramos-Vinolas again won in 2 sets. In the quarterfinal, he was a big underdog because he faced world number 12, Gael Monfils and everyone expected the French to win easily but the Spanish didn’t think so and beat him in 2 sets 7-5, 6-4. The two played against each other in the 1st round of the US Open where Monfils won 3:0 so this was sweet revenge.
Mannarino and Ramos-Vinolas played against each other 6 times and each player has 3 wins and 3 loses. This year they played only once on clay in Geneva and Ramos-Vinolas was the winner in 3 sets. The Spanish is favorite but the French was underdog so far on all his matches and won all of them so I expect a close battle and according to paid betting tips to see more than 2 sets. Prediction: Over 2.5 sets
