Despite being 39 ranking slots ahead of Michelsen, Ramos is the underdog against the wildcard entrant. While the Spaniard’s star has faded, the young American upstart has entertained the crowds with his dogged ability.

Over 35.5 Games @ 17/20 (1.85)
Despite his tender years, Michelsen has been impressive on the tour in 2023. The American teenager has two titles and a further four championship match involvements. On the other hand, Ramos has struggled to impress and is 0-6 on hard court appearances. However, this is the first time Michelsen is playing in the grandest arena and his inexperience can cause him problems. The Wily Spaniard will use it to his advantage. While not having the form on his side, we expect Romos to drag out the affair past the 35.5 game mark.
3-1 to Alex Michelsen @ 14/5 (3.80)
Heading into this duel, Michelsen is the overwhelming favourite and with good reason. The American will lock horns against an experienced campaigner with years of action to call upon to his aide. This should help Ramos to shave off a set but we do not expect him to have the legs to triumph against the youthful Michelsen. With form on his side, the American can drop a set but should get over the line with a 3-1 scoreline.
