These two met once which was Canada vs. Spain in 2013, a match Raonic won in four sets. This will be the first time these two meet on clay court.
You have to give Ramos-Vinolas credit with the way he’s playing, but the later we get in a tournament the more guys start to separate themselves. Raonic is playing very well right now and has far less wear and tear on his body overall.
You have to like Raonic to win this match simply with his current form and overall experience in these type of matches.
