Due to start at 2 pm
Sousa 2.38, Ramos 1.72
Ramos leads their previous matches 6-2. They last met in Shanghai in October 2017. Ramos won on a hard court in 3 sets. He leads 4-1 in their clay matches.
Ramos has much better clay results in the last 12 months and also in 2019. He struggled in his opening set with Mannarino in the last round but was fairly comfortable in the next two sets. He reached the second round last week in Rome as a qualifier. He beat Monfils in the main draw.
Sousa played well to beat Leo Mayer in the last round. He hasn’t been in good form on clay for quite a while. He has won 5 of 16 clay matches in the last 12 months. He did beat in form Tiafoe last week but lost to Mannarino in Madrid the week before.
We may see 3 sets as Ramos often switches off mentally for parts of his matches. Back Ramos around 1.95.
