Garin vs Ramos (By: Iniestaone)
First round from ATP Cordoba between Garin (#95) and Ramos (#71)
I don't know if this match will be played tomorrow or Tuesday, or if it will even be played at all, but its listed for tomorrow at the moment before the exact schedule has been drawn so I'm putting it out there already because the odds on Ramos to win are really good considering the circumstances.
Garin played vs Rodionov yesterday (2/2) in the Davis Cup match between Austria and Chile. The match was played in Salzburg and ended around 19:30 CET. Which means that the Chilean team is most likely flying to South America as I'm writing this at 19:35 CET 2/3. Its just an assumption as I couldn't find any info but they've had to leave Salzburg for Vienna and then fly for 15 hours so its a reasonable estimate. And Garin's match will be played in Cordoba, which is hours away from any of the cities they'll be landing in from Europa. All of this means that Garin won't have enough time to prepare for this first edition of ATP Cordoba no matter if he plays tomorrow or on Tuesday.
Ramos on the other hand has been in Cordoba for several days now practicing and preparing with Berlocq. He has had a few days to get used to the surface and to switch over to South American clay. I think this will be a huge factor here.
Had they played on equal terms I think Garin would win this match as he is really climbing the ranking ladder now and he was excellent on the clay courts last season while Ramos was not, but I think Garin considers this to be a stopover tournament on his way to Buenos Aires where I predict he will play the qualifiers which means he can't reasonably stay in Cordoba for too long anyway.
Odds are dropping on Ramos everywhere and as I wrote, its very possible that Garin withdraws from this match but if he doesn't then I believe this will be his one and only match in Cordoba this year
