For the first time in four editions, the appointment in Córdoba will not be fought by any Argentine, while Ramos repeats the final after losing the 2021 one against Juan Manuel Cerúndolo. The Catalan, who will seek the fourth title of his record -all on land-, extended his good week, where he is achieving the first wins of 2022.
Against Londero, for almost two hours of the game, Ramos had to raise his game one more point, even in a very even first set that was scored in the tie-break.

“It was a difficult game today, because I was a bit nervous, I held on as best I could, and I think we both didn’t play at the best level, But here I am. Against Tabilo it will not be easy, because he is more rested than me, I have seen him this week and he is playing at an incredible level”, considered the Spanish player.
