ATP Ecuador Open, Quito, Quarter Final: Melzer v Ramos, 23:30

Melzer 2.40, Ramos 1.70

This will be their first meeting.

Gerald Melzer has better overall results in last 12 months. On clay he has better results too with 72% matches won to Ramos’ 65%. Most of Melzer’s tennis is played in Challenger tournaments but I think he will be competitive today. He became the first player to beat Estrella in Quito. Estrella had won the title for the last 3 years. Melzer was only broken once and won 81% of his first serve points.

Ramos needed 3 sets to beat 281 ranked wild card Quiroz in the last round. He came under a lot of pressure from Britain’s Cameron Norrie in Davis Cup at the weekend. It was really due to Norrie being fatigued after a tough 5 set win over Bautista Agut that Ramos was able to win in 4 sets.

Value on Melzer to take at least a set. Lay Ramos if he breaks first. I think we have a good chance of 3 sets and I have a feeling Melzer takes it.
