Ramos vs Zhang by Beatle
I really like the odds here and really can't understand the bookies. Clay-court player Ramos is facing a local Chinese player in China on a hard court surface. Moreover, Zhang have already played 8 matches during this Chinese swing. He defeated Soeda and Saville in Shenzhen, lost to Vesely. Then he went to Beijing and, being an underdog, defeated Berankis which is not an easy opponent at all! He fought hard with Istomin and lost by 2 sets to 1. So Zhang is definitely in form and you can't just put such high odds for his victory. It's more than realistic and knowing that Ramos did not even participate in Chinese events last year and knowing that he doesn't have practice on hard courts at the moment, I think that Zhang has a chance here. He will have all the support and will push it to the limits just to qualify to the main draw. Ramos is a good player but he is definitely overrated here, imo. Certainly, surprises happen more often towards the end of the season and I am ready to take my chances here.
Best of luck !
