Rome Open 2022: Tommy Paul vs. Albert Ramos Vinolas Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 Rome Open as Tommy Paultakes on Albert Ramos Vinolas in the first round on Monday, May 9th, 2022.

With just one win in his last five matches, Tommy Paul is in his worst slump this season. And if he was looking for a cushy opening match at the Rome Open to turn the tide, his prayers have not been answered. Paul will take on clay-court specialist Albert Ramos Vinolas who has registered 13 wins on the dirt in 2022. Who will prevail?

Tommy Paul was on the verge of the breaking the world’s top 30 after posting some eye-catching results on hard courts since the turn of the year. But once the clay-court swing came into view, the American has not managed to replicate those performances. And perhaps his inconsistency proved detrimental in closing out his first-round match at the Madrid Open where Paul blinked on the face of pressure. He spurned multiple match points before bowing out from the tournament at the hands of Jannik Sinner. Now in his second main draw appearance at the Rome Open, Paul will face a Spaniard again in Albert Ramos Vinolas.

Albert Ramos Vinolas, in contrast, has played with distinctionon the dirt even though his Madrid Open campaign was a huge letdown. Ramos Vinolas lost to Marin Cilic in three sets on home turf and will be quick to tick off that defeat. The Spanish lefty has played almost the entire calendar up to this point on clay, compiling a 13-8 record for the season. In that run, he won his fourth career title during the Golden Swing in Cordoba, beating Alejandro Tabilo in the final. Ramos Vinolas’ best result at the Rome Open remains the Round of 16 he attained in 2018.

Tommy Paul leads Albert Ramos Vinolas 1-0 in their head-to-head. The American defeated Ramos Vinolas in their hard court matchup at the Adelaide Open in 2020 in straight sets. Paul has since taken his game to new heights, but clay is his weakest surface. We are backing the experienced clay-courter to come out on top.
