Albert Ramos Vinolas is a Spanish professional tennis player who was born on January 17, 1988, in Barcelona, Spain. The Spaniard started playing tennis at the tender age of five with his father, Guzman, who was a committed member of their local club.

After spending his childhood growing up on the Spanish clay, Ramos Vinolas was ready to test his talents on the big stage. Even as a junior he was proving his worth, getting to the final of six Futures tournaments and two ATP Challenger Tour tournaments.

After agonizingly missing out on his ATP main draw debut towards the end of the 2000s, the Spaniard’s luck turned in 2010. He battled hard through the qualifying at the Barcelona Open and reached the first round of the main draw, where he saw off number 12 seed Fernando Gonzalez.

It was evident that this was the level he was meant to be at, as it took him just two years from his debut to reach his first ATP final. Losing to compatriot Pablo Andujar in the final of the Casablanca Open was a sign of a successful career ahead.

Despite racing to a first final, the coveted silverware took a bit more time to come. 2016 was when he claimed his first ATP crown at the Bastad Open on his favorite clay, beating Fernando Verdasco in the final. This year was also when he made his career-best appearance at the Grand Slam level, reaching his first and only quarterfinal at that year’s Roland Garros.

This was certainly the start of a purple patch in his career, as a good run of form meant he claimed his career-high ranking of world number 17 in May 2017. As the years passed and his experience came in handy, the Spaniard gradually got more trophies under his belt.

2019 was the year of his second title at the Swiss Open in Gstaad before claiming the crown at the Estoril Open and the Cordoba Open in 2021 and 2022, respectively. For now, the Spaniard is enjoying what is traditionally a player’s final years on the professional circuit.
