Albert Ramos-Vinolas vs Ilya Ivashka

Time: 2:30 PM IST

Head-to-head: 0-1 

Albert Ramos Vinolas, the veteran Spanish tennis player, has had a difficult time recently with both his performance and confidence taking a hit. Despite reaching the quarterfinals in Rio de Janeiro during the South American clay swing in February, he has since suffered six consecutive losses, some of which have been particularly disappointing. In Estoril, he lost to underdog Jurij Rodionov in three sets, and in Barcelona, he was defeated by Emilio Gomez in three sets.

Unfortunately, the struggles for Ramos Vinolas have not stopped there. He was unable to defend his title at ATP Cordoba, and his subsequent performances in other events have been lackluster. This poor run of form has caused the former world #17 to fall out of the top 50 and drop to #60 in the latest rankings. This marks his lowest position in the ATP rankings since mid-2019.

Things don’t look like they’re about to get any easier for the Spaniard, as he has historically struggled in the Madrid Masters. In his nine previous appearances in the tournament’s main draw, he has failed to advance beyond the second round. In fact, four of those campaigns ended in the first round, indicating that Ramos Vinolas has a significant hurdle to overcome if he wants to make an impact in this year’s competition.

Ilya Ivashka has been on the rise recently, following a slow start to the season. His fitness, confidence, and results have all seen a gradual improvement in recent weeks. At the start of the year, the Belarusian tennis player suffered a rough patch, losing his first five matches. However, he was able to secure his first victory of the year at the Indian Wells Masters last month.

As he heads to the Madrid Masters, Ivashka is still searching for his first win in the tournament. Despite this, he can take confidence from his perfect 3-0 record in opening-round matches at the Masters level in 2023. Ivashka has already defeated Roman Safiullin at Indian Wells, Daniel Altmaier in Miami, and Dan Evans in Monte Carlo.

With his recent form, Ivashka will be looking to build on his successes and make an impact in the Madrid Masters. His recovery and resurgence in form have been encouraging, and he will be hoping to continue his upward trajectory.

Considering their recent form and fitness, it appears that Ilya Ivashka looks the more likely to inflict more pain on Albert Ramos-Vinolas.
Prediction: Back Ilya Ivashka to win @ 1.67
