Bedene vs Ramos (By: Iniestaone)
So we have a similar situation with Ramos today that we had with Carballes yesterday. Carballes struggled a lot vs Elias and lost in two sets and I expect Ramos to face the same outcome.
Ramos played the Quito semis 3 days ago and he too had to make the long flight to Buenos Aires after a week of high altitude tennis. Last year this didn't effect him as much as it should as he went to Buenos Aires after losing in the Quito semis and grinded out a victory vs Pella 6-7 6-4 7-6. He then faced Leo Mayer who was struggling with his right leg throughout the match, they won a tiebreak each before Mayer retired in the beginning of the third set. Ramos then went on to lose to Carreno-Busta. The year before that is a lot more telling I believe as Ramos had lost to Estrella in the Quito semis and then lost to Cuevas in two sets in Buenos Aires.
Bedene was a slight underdog vs Vesely but gave the world a real show of strenght as he defeated the Czech 6-0 6-3. He plays his by far best tennis on slower clay courts and I expect him to grab another win here vs Ramos whom he has defeated 1/3 times. Prior to the match vs Vesely he hadn't played for 9 days, he has been in Buenos Aires for 4 days preparing and adapting for this tournament and everything tells me he has the upper hand in this encounter.
