Fabio Fognini vs. Albert Ramos-Vinolas
June 28, 2021 12:00 pm EDT
Fabio Fognini (26) meets Albert Ramos-Vinolas in the first round of the 2021 Championships on Monday, June 28th 2021.
Which of these two experienced players will come out on top in this extremely entertaining encounter, will it be the clay courter Albert of will it be the always hard to predict Fabio Fognini to get a big win early on here in London?
Albert Ramos-Vinolas has not had a great beginning to his matches on grass, as he is just not comfortable with the low bounce of the ball as well as the lack of spin the court allows to come through. Albert is experienced but this year when he has played anywhere other than clay, he has struggled a lot. If he was presented with an easier start to the draw he would perhaps be able to make if further, but he has been drawn against such a tough opponent in Fabio that it is so hard to know what he will be able to get out of this first round match.
Fabio Fognini will want to show the London crowd his incredible flamboyant tennis which we all know he can play. Fognini somehow can be one of the best players on tour on his day, and the next day can be the worst you have ever seen. I hope we see the Italian come out here ready to give it his best as this is a very big tournament and he will want to find some form after having a tough season so far. However, he will not be able to let his guard down as he will regret it against Albert if he does so.

This is going to be the 12th encounter between both players, with Fabio having won 9 of their last 11 encounters. Albert can only really compete with Fabio on clay courts, and on any other surface he struggles. As Albert has had a terrible start to the season on grass, I see Fabio being able to get a win again over the Spaniard to make his way to the second round in London and gain some momentum.
