Albert Ramos-Vinolas – Thomaz Bellucci Match Prediction | 12-09-2019 09:00

Thiems first difficult match should come against Paolo Lorenzi/Federico Delbonis or Diego Schwartzman in the quarters. 45-13 on clay over the last two seasons, Austrias Dominic Thiem is journeying over from Europe to take part in his first clay court tournament of 2017. The Italian veteran Lorenzi opens with Federico Delbonis, Diego Schwartzman or Renzo Olivo will follow. Thiem reached the quarters in Rotterdam, but has performed below lofty expectations thus far. The 35 year old Italian was a finalist in Quito, and although hes struggled against Delbonis in recent matchups, I have him notching a slight upset and then falling to DSS, who isnt playing poorly at all, and should beat Olivo in round 1. Hell open with struggling veteran Janko Tipsarevic, another Serbian, Dusan Lajovic, should follow for Thiem, presuming Lajovic does away with a struggling Facundo Bagnis. Thiem should edge Schwartzman in the quarters.

Ramos-Vinolas will have a good chance to lift the Spanish curse of the Pekao Szczecin Open. Clay courts are usually this nations players forte, yet over 26 past editions not a single Spaniard lifted the title. Seven different men combined for nine runner-ups and only two sets won in the finals. In last years edition, Alejandro Davidovich Fokina took a set from Guido Andreozzi, but came up just short in the very end.

He comes off a round 2 loss to Sergiy Stakhovsky in Bucharest, and his last two losses have been gut punch three setters (to Ivo Karlovic in Bucharest, and Alex Dolgopolov in Monte Carlo), now he will look to right the ship against Chardy, who reached a quarterfinal in Houston on clay, and lost to Federer in MC. Chardy is decent on clay, and hes one of those reliable mid-tier players that stays at the ATP level, but doesnt quite have enough in him to challenge for titles. This is the type of match Coric should win if he is to break through and get himself into the top 40 by the end of the year, and I do have him winning this one. Chardy defeated Coric in four sets at the Australian Open this year, but the teenage Croat will look to get his revenge on clay.


10 David Ferrer. Reached semifinal stage at the inaugural Quito Open, losing to eventual champion Victor Estrella Burgos. Lost seven matches in a row (So Paulo,Rio, Buenos Aires, Davis Cup, Indian Wells and Irving) respectively to Martin Klizan, Rafael Nadal, Paolo Lorenzi, Leonardo Mayer, Federico Delbonis, Simone Bolelli and Sergiy Stakhovsky. Bellucci began the year by losing in the first round of Auckland to Ji Vesel and had the same result at the Australian Open, despite taking a set from world no.

Robredo comes off the quarters in Barcelona and is 4-2 in his last two tournaments on clay (Monte Carlo the other), additionally, hes 3-0 against PCB (who hasnt won a match since Rio in February (7 straight losses), so look for Robredo in the quarters. Montanes opens with a qualifier, in a section a qualifier could bust open, while Muller will play wild card Frederico Ferreira Silva of Portugal (20). In those quarters, he could face Gilles Muller, who hasnt won an ATP match on clay since 2012, or perhaps faded veteran Albert Montanes, a 34 year old pensioner who was formerly reliable but hasnt won consecutive matches since Quito. I have Muller in the quarters, losing to the more accomplished clay courter Robredo in my own bracket, though Montanes may have something left in the tank. Tommy Robredo will open with a qualifier or Pablo Carreno Busta.

Lost in the 2nd round of both Braunschweig and Scheveningen challengers to Philipp Petzschner and Matteo Viola. Lost in 2nd round of Marburg Challenger to Swiss Henri Laaksonen and Q1 of Wimbledon to aussie and former junior number 1, Luke Saville. Lost in the 1st round of Winston-Salem to Frank Dancevic. As a lucky loser, reached the 2nd round in Hamburg, but lost to Spaniard Pablo Andjar and followed with a quarterfinal showing at Gstaad losing to Juan Mnaco. Lost in Q2 of Madrid and at Roland Garros won in the 1st round against German Benjamin Becker in five sets (62, 64, 36, 46, 62) and lost in 2nd round again to Fognini in straight sets.

After losing to Volandri the Brazilian had to hear boos from his own country crowd.[11] After losing in the 1R in the next four tournaments (Buenos Aires, Acapulco, Indian Wells and Dallas) Bellucci finally came up with two wins in a row in Miami, over Daniel Brands and Jerzy Janowicz, then losing in the third round to Seppi. He won in the 1R against fellow countryman Guilherme Clezar but fell again to Volandri in the 2R at Brasil Open. In Jacksonville, playing for Brazil in Davis Cup competition, he upset John Isner in a five-set match, but Brazil lost the tie to the US 32. He started the European clay court season by losing again in the first round of Monte Carlo to Philipp Kohlschreiber and finally reached his first quarter-final of the year in Barcelona, by defeating Pablo Carreno Busta and Dmitry Tursunov; he withdrew from the tournament with an abdominal strain, which made him lose the rest of the European clay court season and the grass season, including Roland Garros and Wimbledon. After an early first-round loss to Bla Kavi at the 2013 Australian Open, Bellucci got to the quarterfinals in doubles, with partner Benot Paire, losing to Marcel Granollers and Marc Lpez.
