The ATP Tour continues onward in Germany and Switzerland this week. The Swiss Open and German Open are currently underway for the men. We’re entering the quarterfinal rounds for both tournaments.
Is there one bigger than the other event? Both are clay tournaments that have attracted decent talent. You aren’t going to find the best of the best on the clay this week, but Carlos Alcaraz, Casper Ruud, and Matteo Berrettini are notable names.
Berrettini was on fire with back-to-back ATP titles on the grass going into Wimbledon. He was one of the favorites to win behind Novak Djokovic, but a positive Covid-19 test scrambled his plans for a grand slam.
If Berretini wins in Gstaad it will have his third straight title. We will never know what would have happened at Wimbledon. Rafael Nadal dropped out, so he would have been the clear second-favorite.
With Ruud and Berrettini still alive going into Friday, it’s going to be tough on Ramos-Vinolas and Jarry to win the Swiss Open. However, these smaller tournaments are the perfect time for an upset.
There isn’t going to be an upset either way in this match. Ramos-Vinolas is the No. 2 seed against unseeded Jarry, but the odds suggest that it can go either way.
Ramos-Vilonas is a slight favorite over Jarry at -118 on the moneyline. It should be a good one. Head below for our best Ramos-Vinolas vs. Jarry prediction on July 22, 2022.
Albert Ramos-Vinolas vs. Nicolas Jarry Swiss Open Live Betting Odds:
|Albert Ramos-Vinolas||-0.5 (-115)||-118||Over 23 (-120)|
|Nicolas Jarry||+0.5 (-115)||+100||Under 23 (-110)|
Ramos-Vinolas vs. Jarry Prediction:
Nicolas Jarry has been in clutch form to reach the quarterfinals at the Swiss Open. He’s had to play five straight tiebreakers to get to the quarters. Jarry beat Thiago Monteiro in three sets, 6-7 (9-11), 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (8-6) to reach the Round of 16.
Jarry had already won two tiebreakers against Monteiro, so he was well-prepared for this situation. He won the match with a 7-6 (7-5), 7-6 (7-2) victory.
The oddsmakers believe that Jarry should keep this match as well. They don’t have full confidence in the 40th-ranked Ramos-Vinolas running away with a win on Friday.
He defeated Dominic Stephan Stricker in three sets, 6-3, 4-6, 6-1. Stricker was able to get 11 aces past Ramos-Vinolas in the loss. He had the luxury of skipping qualifying and the Round of 32, while Jarry has won two qualifying matches, Round of 32 and 16.
Ramos-Vinolas is better than he is since losing to Jarry in 2018. However, this match isn’t going to be anything new for either player. Close matches tend to have plenty of games. That’s what I’m seeing in this one, with two sets that go down to the wire or a third.
