In the 2019 ATP Swiss Indoors, Stefanos Tsitsipas will begin his tournament in the opening round where he will face Albert Ramos Vinolas from Spain.
Albert Ramos Vinolas enters this tournament having last played at the Shanghai Masters. Vinolas defeated Marin Cilic in the opening round at Shanghai but was defeated by Roger Federer in the second round. It was a strong Asian season for Albert Ramos Vinolas as he made the semifinals of a Challenger Event and the Zhuhai Championship. In general, it has been a strong season for Albert Ramos Vinolas and the Spaniard will be hoping to finish strongly. This is expected to be a tough match for Albert Ramos Vinolas as he is playing against the number 3 seed.
Looking at Stefanos Tsitsipas, the Greek superstar had a strong Asian season. In Asia, Tsitsipas made the final of the China Open and the semifinal of the Shanghai Masters. During the Asian season, Tsitsipas defeated the likes of Alexander Zverev, John Isner and Novak Djokovic. Tsitsipas has already secured a spot at the ATP finals but the Greek superstar will be determined to perform well at these tournaments as he has a good chance of moving up the rankings.
Albert Ramos Vinolas and Stefanos Tsitsipas have played each other once in the past. The match was played in 2018 at the Barcelona Open where Stefanos Tsitsipas won in straight sets.
Albert Ramos Vinolas has been a very strong player in 2019 and while he will be hoping to cause an upset, I don’t see him having enough to compete with Stefanos Tsitsipas. Tsitsipas has been playing on a different level in 2019 and he is one of the top players on the tour. I see Stefanos Tsitsipas being too strong as he wins this match in straight sets.
