WWW Hamburg R2: L Rosol vs A Ramos

I'm leaning towards the Spaniard. He's been in poor form for the last 10 weeks, but some big results are just around the corner. Ramos in 2.

Re: WWW Hamburg R2: L Rosol vs A Ramos

If Rosol can defeat Ramos, then it means serious business. People will actually begin to notice him outside of a one-hit wonder having defeated two very competent players. Crucial match for Lukas.

Lukas to unleash the beast and prevail.

Spot on. Ramos is exactly the kind of guy that will frustrate Rosol. Wicked defence, great angles for moving him around.

This will be another top 50 win - if he can get it - that will send out the correct signals of intent.

Re: WWW Hamburg R2: L Rosol vs A Ramos

Well, considering Ramos and his current form, I would go with Lukas...If he is serving well and painting the lines, it will be tough for Ramos...Come on, Lukas...Step up your A game, dude

Go, Rosol. If Dimitrov could, you should be able to down another Spanish groupie.

Re: WWW Hamburg R2: L Rosol vs A Ramos

Ramos is dull even by Spaniard standards. Rosol should have too much game for him.

If he gets in trouble, Rosol should just pretend it's Nadal on the other side of the net. That should see him through.

Re: WWW Hamburg R2: L Rosol vs A Ramos

This is make or break for Rosol. If he loses this his win over NAdal was a fluke, if not he is the GOAT.

Nonsense. It wouldn't matter if Rosol wins or loses this match.

That said, this is a winnable match for him. He's got the serve, where he can mix it up and frustrate Ramos.

Re: WWW Hamburg R2: L Rosol vs A Ramos

I'm hoping RoSoul will bash Mugmos off the court but I feel he is the underdog.

Ramos in 3

Game over. Forever.

Ramos is another overranked player. There's been some weak top 50 guys the last few years and he's up there.
