Match: Fernando Verdasco vs. Stan Wawrinka Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Tuesday, 30 August, 2016
Game number 2 on Arthur Ashe Stadium this Tuesday will be maybe the most interesting 1st round game this year at the US Open – Fernando Verdasco vs Stan Wawrinka.
This will be their 6th meeting – the stats shows 3 wins for Verdasco and 2 for Wawrinka. Of course, Stan is huge favorite here, not only because he is world number 3, but also because outdoor hard is his favorite surface. Verdasco as a typical Spaniard prefers clay and slower surfaces. Stan is definitely not in his best form after Roland Garros and for example, in London’s Queens Tournament he lost exactly to Verdasco in 2.
Stan is not famous with easy wins early in the Grand Slam tournaments and this is expected to be a tough game for him too. Verdasco hasn’t been impressive recently too but he shouldn’t be underestimated, we remember his win against Nadal at Australian Open this year which came again in R1. But Stan is the player who aims to reach at least semi-final here like he did last year and I think he will win this match in 3 or 4.
