With one more excellent appearance, Gael Monfils, crashed 31-year-old Ramos-Vinolas with 6-0, 6-3 in more than an hour, getting a ticket for the 4th round of the Indian Wells Masters.
The 32-year-old French champion, who has had 14 wins in 17 games this season, has won the first 7 games of the match, as well as the last three, to get this quick qualification that was necessary after his struggling victory over Leonardo Mayer 2nd round.
Ramos-Vinolas did his best to stop the Monfils, but the French’s confidence in himself helped him to prevail over the first set without looking back.
While the Spanish tennis player showed a better self in the second set, he continued to defend himself against Monfils’s overt attack. Although his defenses had begun to abandon him, Monfils regained control and continued to push Ramos-Vinolas until he could recover. With 6-3 he sealed the win and secured his ticket in the fourth round of the tournament.
In the next round, Monflis will face the winner of Novak Djokovic and Philipp Kohlschreiber, where the match was postponed due to rain in the 2nd game, with Kohlschreiber having an advantage in his serve for 1-1 (0-1, A -40) and will continue tonight at midnight.
