Albert Ramos-Viñolas (born 17 January 1988) is a Spanish tennis player. He has a career-high singles ranking of World No. 26, achieved in October 2016[1] in part due to his reaching the quarterfinals of the French Open. His best performance at a Grand Slam event was to reach the quarter-finals of the 2016 French Open.

Tennis career[edit]

Ramos-Viñolas has participated in the finals of six Futures tournaments, four of which he won. He lost in the finals of two ATP Challenger Tour tournaments (in Seville against his compatriot Pere Riba and in Palermo against Romanian player Adrian Ungur). In 2010 he won his first Challenger final in San Sebastián, defeating Benoît Paire.

At the 2010 ATP 500 Barcelona, Ramos-Viñolas defeated world no. 12 Fernando González to reach the third round, where he lost to Ernests Gulbis. At the 2012 Indian Wells Masters, he won over Richard Gasquet to reach the third round, where he fell to Pablo Andújar. At the 2012 Miami Masters, he defeated world no. 15 player Feliciano López, then lost to Gasquet in the third round. His lone ATP final came in the 2012 Grand Prix Hassan II in Casablanca, which he lost to reigning champion Andújar in an all-Spanish affair.[2]

2013[edit]

At the 2013 Miami Masters, Ramos-Viñolas beat world no. 14 Juan Mónaco and former world no. 4 James Blake to reach the fourth round, where he lost to Jürgen Melzer. At the 2013 Barcelona Open, he defeated Jerzy Janowicz and world no. 15 Kei Nishikori, after which Rafael Nadal defeated him in the quarterfinals.

2015[edit]

At the 2015 Shanghai Rolex Masters, Ramos-Viñolas defeated world No. 2 Roger Federer in three sets to reach the third round, where he fell to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.[3]

2016[edit]

Ramos-Viñolas entered the US Open and beat France's Julien Benneteau in the first round but then fell to Russia's Andrey Kuznetsov in the second round. Ramos-Viñolas also played doubles with Argentina's Carlos Berlocq but lost to a player from Pakistan & a player from Sweden in the first round.

2016: First Grand Slam quarterfinal and first ATP title[edit]

At the 2016 French Open, Ramos-Viñolas advanced to the quarterfinals by defeating eighth seed Milos Raonic in straight sets in the fourth round.[4] He then lost in straight sets to third seed Stan Wawrinka.[5] Later that year at Wimbledon, he defeated Vasek Pospisil in four sets, and then 25th seed Viktor Troicki, to reach the third round for the first time.

Ramos-Viñolas next played at the Swedish Open as the third seed. He defeated Roberto Carballés Baena in straight sets, and then beat Andrea Arnaboldi in three sets. In the semifinals, he defeated top seed David Ferrer in straight sets. He won his first ATP title when he defeated fifth seed Fernando Verdasco in the final in straight sets.

He continued his good form for the year by reaching the final in Chengdu, where he plays young Russian Karen Khachanov.
