Casper Ruud: The Young Norwegian has a lot of sparks
Casper will enter the tournament as the third-seeded player and he is right now in the peak of his career, achieving his career-best ranking of five during the list released just a couple of weeks ago. He comes into the Grand Slam after blowing away the first-round match-up during the Queen’s Club Championship. However, before that, Casper had made it to the Finals of the French Open(losing to Nadal) after defeating players such as Hubert Hurkacz. Prior to that, he had won Geneva Open and had lost to Novak Djokovic in the Semi-Final of the Italian Open.
In the Round of 32, he had lost to Dusan Lajovic during Madrid Open. His success rate in most of the tournaments was a bit questionable but the run during French Open is what propelled them to a relatively higher-ranked player. His play on grass has been rather underwhelming and Wimbledon hasn’t been kind to the Norwegian superstar as he has been kicked off in the first round thrice in a row during the Grand Slam event.Bet on Wimbledon with 1xBet
Albert Ramos-Vinolas: In the twilight of his career
Albert is an experienced 34-year-old Spaniard who has been ranked 40 before the tournament. His peak ranking has been 17, achieved in 2017. In his last tournament, Queen’s Club Championships, he was ousted in the first round by compatriot Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. In the Second Round of the French Open, he was again ousted by a compatriot as Carlos Alcaraz beat him in five rounds. Albert has seen his campaign usually end in the first or second rounds during the major tournaments.
Albert hasn’t been doing his best on the grass and has only won 28% of his games on the surface since the beginning of his career. Since 2017, the Spaniard has not won a single grass game, currently on a six-game losing streak. The player’s preferred surface is clay and things have been rather rough on grass. Albert is also in the twilight of his career and it seems we have seen the best of him already.
Who will win the match between Casper Ruud and Albert Ramos-Vinolas?
The thing is that these two players in Casper and Albert have been horrible on the grass surface and they will both be struggling in this game. However, considering recent form, Ruud has done way better than Albert and he can be considered a favorite in that regard. But hold on to that though, in terms of head-to-head, Casper has only won once in four games but do remember all these games took place on clay. The last time these two met was during the Santiago event when Casper pulled off a win.
Unsurprisingly, bookmakers believe that Casper Ruud is going to enter as the favorite, being assigned the odds of 1.22. Albert hasn’t been given much of a chance as the odds are reflected at 4.56
While Casper enters as the favorite, if choose the sliders for sets at 1xbet, a 3-0 set win for Casper brings the odds of 2.19, meaning that it is the most predicted outcome for the game by 1xbet as other scenarios bring the odds to 3+. In terms of handicap, the outcome for the Ruud winning at least 6 games bring the odds of 1.77. I’d pick a handicap of -6.5(Odds:2.12) here though in favor of Ruud.Bet on Wimbledon with 1xBet!
