Albert Ramos Vinolas won 46% of his receiving points which allowed him to break his opponent’s serve on 5 occasions. In addition to that, Albert Ramos Vinolas also managed to win 73% of his service games which sealed a good result. It has been a very strong season for Ramos Vinalos as he recently made the final of the Austrian Open and won the Swiss Open. Considering his recent form, Albert Ramos Vinolas will be tough to beat.
On the other side of the coin, Adrian Mannarino benefitted from Stefanos Tsitsipas’s retirement and the Frenchman has had an easy draw to the semifinal stage.

Albert Ramos Vinolas and Adrian Mannarino have played each other 5 times in the past. Mannarino has won twice while Vinolas has won on 3 occasions. The most recent match between these players was earlier in the season at Geneva where Albert Ramos Vinolas won in 3 sets.
Despite the form he has shown during this tournament, I see Adrian Mannarino losing this match. Albert Ramos Vinolas is the stronger player and the Spaniard has been in outstanding touch in 2019. Vinolas has looked dominant throughout this tournament and I see him being good enough to secure a spot in the final.
