Carballes Baena vs. Ramos-Vinolas
Roberto Carballes Baena continues to impress in Quito. The 24-year-old advanced to his first ATP World Tour final after a 4 – 6 6 – 3 6 – 2 win over Andrej Martin. Regardless of this Sunday’s outcome, the Spaniard already secured his career-high ranking next week with an unprecedented appearance in the top 90. Adding to this, Carballes Baena became the first qualifier to reach the final at the Ecuador Open.
The No.2 seed Albert Ramos-Vinolas will play for his second ATP World Tour title this Sunday in Quito. Known as one of the best clay-court players in the game, the 30-year-old holds an incredible 67.57% winning record on this surface over the last 12 months. Adding to this, the world No.21 only lost 25.99% of the matches played throughout his career on red dirt when priced as favourite.
These two players will face each other for the 6th time in their careers with Ramos-Vinolas leading on the h2h by 4 – 1.
As the h2h suggests, Ramos-Vinolas is far from an easy match-up for his fellow countryman. Despite Carballes Baena’s impressive run on this event, it’s impossible to ignore Albert’s incredible results on this surface in recent years. On the other hand, Ramos-Vinolas is the more experienced of the two at this level. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add Ramos-Vinolas -3 Game Handicap at 81/100 at Pinnacle as the best betting approach for this final.
