Nishikori vs. Ramos: will the Japanese win his first win of the season?
14/09/2020, at 09:00 GMT
Italy. ATR Rome
In face-to-face meetings the score was 4-1 in favor of Nishikori.
In 4 out of 5 personal matches the Japanese beat the Spaniard by four or more games.
Nishikori has not yet won on clay this year. Ramos won five matches.
Most recently, Nishikori contracted the coronavirus. But everything is over and now the Japanese is absolutely healthy. He managed even to play his first match after an illness. Despite the fact that he lost to Miomir Kechmanovich in Kitzb?hel, Kei looked pretty good. The Japanese representative even managed to win the first set. However, he failed to win, as he lost in the other two games (6-4, 4-6, 2-6). This, incidentally, was Nishikori's first fight this year.
Note that Kei performs very well at this tournament. For example, in 2019 he reached the quarterfinals. In 2018 he has a similar result.

Ramos is not yet ready to resume the season. After the restart the Spaniard had two fights, but in both he did not look the best. At the US Open, Albert suffered a crushing defeat from Stefanos Tsitsipas (2-6, 1-6, 1-6) and in Kitzb?hel he could not cope with Laszlo Giere (1-6, 6-3, 6-7).
Ramos never performed well in Rome. His best result here is the second round. By the way, he reached this stage of the competition last year too, but lost too easily to Argentine Schwarzman (6-7, 1-6). Now the Spaniard needs to get in shape, but he is unlikely to do it in this match.
Nishikori is an awkward opponent for Ramos. The Spaniard loses regularly to the Japanese and does so with a big difference in the score. Besides, Albert is not ready for the game right now. It is unlikely that such a Ramos will be able to create problems for Nishikori. The representative of Japan should win easily in the class.
Our prediction is the victory of Kei Nishikori, taking into account the handicap (-3) of the game for the coefficient 1.69 in BC Parimatch
