Albert Ramos-Vinolas will play against Roger Federer in the 2nd round in the Shanghai – Masters and here you can read best tennis prediction for today. The game is on Tuesday, 8 October and will not start before 10:30 UK.
Albert Ramos-Vinolas world number 46 preferred to play on clay and that’s why after he lost in the 1st round in the US Open against Gael Monfils 3:0 the Spanish flew to Europe and played in Genoa challenger. In Genoa, he won his first three matches against Federico Gaio, Attila Balazs and Moura Monteiro Thiago but in the semifinal lost from world number 102 Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. Then he took part in Szczecin challenger and again won his first three matches but again in the semifinal this time lost from Guido Andreozzi. His first tournament in Asia was Zhuhai and the Spanish did amazing after 3 wins as an underdog against Nishioka, Kecmanovic, and Monfils but for a third tournament in a row, he lost in the semifinal this time as favorite from Adrian Mannarino. Then Ramos-Vinolas lost in the 1st round in Beijing from Felix Auger Aliassime but he started with a win in the Shanghai – Masters against world number 25 Marin Cilic and now will face Federer.
Roger Federer world number 3 played only in Cincinnati before the US Open and won in the 2nd round against Ignacio Londero Juan but then shocked everyone when he lost in the round of 16 from Andrey Rublev. In the US Open the Swiss started with two 4 sets wins against Sumit Nagal and Damir Dzumhur but in the 3rd and round of 16 Federer beat easily Daniel Evans and David Goffin to make it to the quarterfinals where he faced Grigor Dimitrov and the Bulgarian beat him for the first time in his career after 5 sets. After that, he played at Laver Cup and won both his matches against Nick Kyrgios and John Isner. Shanghai – Masters will be his first tournament since then.
Heat-to-head Ramos-Vinolas and Federer got 2 matches and both players got one win. Their last game was exactly in Shanghai – Masters 2015 and the Spanish won that match 2:1. However, Roger is the absolute favorite in the upcoming clash and I don’t see how he can lose.
Best tennis prediction for today: Federer 2:0
