ATP Austrian Open – Kitzbuhel, 12:00 – Schwartzman v Ramos
Schwartzman isn’t in great form and has won 3 of his last 10. He has won just 1 set since the French Open in May.
Ramos won a Challenger title on clay last month and took Fognini to 3 sets last week. This doesn’t look a bad price for him. He reached the second round last year as a qualifier and I’m sure will be looking to pick up points this week.
Back Ramos above 1.60. he starts around 1.44 .
ATP Austrian Open – Kitzbuhel, 15:00 – Giraldo v Da Silva
Giraldo has won both their previous matches in straight sets. The most recent was this season on clay.
Giraldo reached the quarter finals last week and the semi finals in Geneva in May. Other than that he hasn’t been too reliable in the last 2 or 3 months.
Da Silva has come through the qualifying rounds and beat Berlocq in his last match. He has put in some very respectable performances recently. He took Delbonis and Carreno Busta to 3 sets. He also beat Paire and Mathieu on clay.
I think this could go to 3 sets. Lay Giraldo below 1.30 for a trade. He should find a way to win.
