TennisSection previews the 2021 Estoril Open Final as Albert Ramos-Vinolas (7) meets Cameron Norrie on Sunday, May 2nd 2021.
Will the Brit, Cameron Norrie, continue to cause huge upsets here at the 2021 Estoril Open as he looks to win his maiden ATP Tour title? Will Albert Ramos-Vinolas finally get his first title of 2021 under his belt as he has continously made the later stages of these smaller ATP 250 tournaments? Both players have had fabulous weeks here at the 2021 Estoril Open, but only won will list the trophy. Who will it be?
Cameron Norrie shocked everyone once again by beating the very experienced Marin Cilic in the Semi-finals in straight sets 7-6(5)/7-5. Marin Cilic was able to keep the match very tight throughout both sets, but as he did against Cristian Garin, Cameron Norrie changed his playing style up to shock Cilic when it mattered most. Now, Cameron Norrie has a very strong chance to win his maiden ATP Tour title, but will the Brit have enough in him to cause a third upset in a row, especially against a player who has a lot of experience and has had a lot of success on clay this season in Albert Ramos-Vinolas?
Albert Ramos-Vinolas won the battle of the Spaniards in the Semi-finals of the 2021 Estoril Open, beating the young Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in straight sets 6-1/6-4. Albert Ramos-Vinolas has been very consistent on clay in 2021, reaching the quarters, semis, and sometimes the Final of many smaller ATP 250 clay-court tournaments. Albert Ramos-Vinolas has a lot of experience on the ATP Tour and he will definitely feel like that this is his best shot at winning a title this year, especially after so many close attempts. Can Albert Ramos-Vinolas prevent Cameron Norrie from succeeding in his hattrick of upsets?
Albert Ramos-Vinolas and Cameron Norrie have met 2 times before, with Albert Ramos-Vinolas leading the head to head 2-0. They last met in 2019 on clay where Albert won in straight sets 6-2/6-2. Although Cameron Norrie had been on an absolute super high level of tennis all week, he still is not as skilled on clay as Albert Ramos-Vinolas. I expect it to be a tight match as both players will be willing to give it their all here, but experience will prevail here at the 2021 Estoril Open.
