Lleyton Hewitt vs. Albert Ramos: ATP Munich Round 1 Preview
Former World No.1 Lleyton Hewitt will square-off against the Spaniard Albert Ramos in the opening round of the BMW Open in Munich on Tuesday. Can the double Major winner outsmart a tricky challenger to book his place in the second round on the day?

Australian great Lleyton Hewitt made a dream start in 2014 as he stunned the 17-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer in the final of the Brisbane International to claim his 29th career title. However, the Adelaide native failed to build on that momentum as he continued to suffer one early defeat after another in the tournaments he participated thereafter.

In fact, he has not won back-to-back matches since that big victory over the Swiss maestro. The problem with Hewitt has been his forehand – a shot which has started to break down especially when the rallies last long and when he is made to run from one side to the other of the court. Yet, he is a big time player and can never be counted out from at least progressing to the quarters.

On the other hand, Albert Ramos was in the news all over the tennis world last week as he manufactured an amazing display against the World No.1 Rafael Nadal in their first round clash at the Barcelona Open in Spain. And, even though the Majorcan went on to claim a straight sets win over him, he had indeed tested him fiercely all through the match.

The two players will be battling on court for the very first time with Hewitt heading into the match as the big favorite. Nonetheless, Ramos would be high on confidence after his performance in Catalonia and would have it somewhere in his mind that if he can challenge Nadal so much so, then he can surely push Hewitt to the limits.
