Albert Ramos-Vinolas is a professional tennis player from Spain. He is currently ranked in the top 40 in singles by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), with a career-high ATP singles ranking of world No. 17 achieved in the 2017 Monte Carlo Masters final. Ramos-Vinolas has a baseline game similar to that of his countryman Rafael Nadal. He’s a counterpuncher who grinds opponents down with heavy topspin. His strongest shot is a heavy topspin forehand, which he uses to move opponents around the court. He can also use his forehand to produce clean winners by flattening it out. Although both wings can produce winners, his flatter forehand can result in a lot of unforced errors. Much like Nadal, Ramos-Vinolas is also most comfortable on clay.
During the 2011 season, Ramos-Vinolas competed in both ATP World Tour and Challenger tournaments. Ramos Violas received direct entry into his first ATP tournaments after second-round losses to Fabio Fognini and Tommy Robredo at the Chile and Argentina Opens, respectively. He won his first Grand Slam match at the French Open, defeating Javier Marti in the first round. In the second round, he was defeated by eventual quarterfinalist and World No. 5 Robin Soderling. Ramos-Vinolas reached his first ATP Quarterfinal at the Romanian Open, losing to Florian Mayer in straight sets after victories in Milan and the San Sebastian Challenger. Ramos-Vinolas’ ranking dropped to No. 87 in the world after his performance in Bucharest.
There are almost no details that are available about Ramos-Vinolas’ wife Helena Marti. Her Instagram account is a private one and she is not someone who is active on other social media platforms. Helena and Ramos-Vinolas have been together for quite a while, as suggestive from the latter’s Instagram handle. They have one child together. The Spaniard seems like a family man who prefers to keep his personal life a private affair.
Ramos-Vinolas reached the third round of the 2018 Australian Open, his best showing at the Grand Slam, where he was defeated by 14th seed Novak Djokovic. In July, he won his second clay title at the 2019 Swiss Open Gstaad, and in the same month, he reached his seventh clay final at the 2019 Generali Open Kitzbuhel in Austria, where he was defeated by top seed Dominic Thiem.
Ramos-Vinolas reached the finals of two ATP tournaments on clay in 2021: the Cordoba Open, where he was defeated by first-time qualifier Argentine Juan Manuel Cerundolo, and the Estoril Open, where he won his 10th career final and third ATP title on clay by defeating Brit Cameron Norrie in three sets. As a result, on 3 May 2021, he re-entered the top 40 for the first time since March 2020.
