St Petersburg Open: Marin Cilic vs. Albert Ramos-Vinolas Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2021 St Petersburg Open as Albert Ramos-Vinolas takes on Marin Cilic in the Round of 32 on Wednesday, October 27th, 2021.

Will Marin Cilic continue his good form? Will Albert Ramos Vinolas pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have an ATP veteran taking on a tough test. Who will move on to the Round of 16 at the 2021 St Petersburg Open?

Marin Cilic played a great week at the Kremlin Cup, just a few hours away from St Petersburg, reaching the final. He did fall short to Aslan Karatsev, but he played a great game for the indoor hardcourts, using his hard and flat shots and brilliant serving to get through some tough opponents and can use the same here at the St Petersburg Open. He has a great shot to get this match under the bag as well, assuming he has no mental hindrances from just losing the final at the Kremlin Cup. He has a great matchup for some like Ramos-Vinolas on this surface, as he takes the ball early and hits really hard and flat, compared to Ramos-Vinolas who likes to put more topspin on his shots and take his time. Let’s see if Cilic is mentally recovered and can grab this win to kick off his campaign at the 2021 St Petersburg Open.

Albert Ramos-Vinolas has a tough one ahead of him in Marin Cilic here at the 2021 St Petersburg Open. His game doesn’t match up too well to his, as he likes a game that’s much more suitable of a slower surface, where he can really spin the ball and generate long rallies. On a court like this, however, it will be hard for him to do that, especially against a player like Cilic. Ramos-Vinolas played great in Indian Wells, and it will be interesting to see if he can carry over that form, however, the conditions on a hard court could not vary more compared to that tournament to this one, where the ball was flying so much slower there compared to here. Let’s see if Ramos-Vinolas can challenge Cilic for a spot in the Round of 16 at the 2021 St Petersburg Open.

Marin Cilic and Albert Ramos-Vinolas have met 8 times before, with Marin Cilic leading the head to head 5-3. Their meetings date all the way back to 2011. Ramos-Vinolas was able to get the win a few times, especially earlier on in their meetings, however, Cilic definitely has the number on him. They even met once this year, on a slow hard court in Toronto, where Cilic managed to beat him in 3 sets. If he can beat him on a court like that, he should have no problem getting through this one as he goes for a spot in the Round of 16 at the 2021 St Petersburg Open.
