Brasil Open 2017: Championship Prediction

[3] Pablo Cuevas (URU) vs [2] Albert Ramos-Vinolas (ESP)

This week’s only clay court event on the ATP Tour is a 250 level tournament, but it has not disappointed in providing good tennis.  Each finalist has a great opportunity to grab a title and coveted ranking points.  Ramos-Vinolas is younger by 2 years and slightly higher in the rankings, but he also only has 1 career title to Cuevas’ 5.  Cuevas leads their head-to-head 3-1 winning 7 of 9 sets played.  He is also 2-1 since 2015 so most of their matches occurred in the relevant past.  Cuevas has also had good success in Brazil.  This makes me think he is the slight favorite to claim his 6th career title.

My Prediction: Cuevas d. Ramos-Vinolas 7-6, 7-5
