Wawrinka vs Nadal by Tennisguy

In this quarterfinal match from Rome(clay) we have Stanislas Wawrinka from Switzerland facing against Rafel Nadal from Spain.


They have met 14 times so far and Nadal has completely dominated the h2h encounter leading 13-1. That being said Nadal's wins where in a time where he was producing some of his best tennis and was at the top of his game which is not the case now.


Wawrinka has had a strange year so far with quite a few highs and lows but I think with the French Open so close he will need to make a statement in this tournament to boos his confidence level for the Grand Slam to come. What better way to do that if not with a victory against one of the best clay court players of all time. I think Stan surely has the firepower and the service to trouble Nadal in this quarterfinal but he is a bit unpredictable like I said and the only question is if he can deliver. He defeated Monaco 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 and then Thiem 7-6(3), 6-4 and even though he performed well in those meetings I think he need to step up his game if he wants to defeat Nadal.


Nadal defeated Ilhan 6-2, 6-0 and Isner 6-4, 6-4. He is improving as time passes but he still isn't close to the level he once was. He had a very strange final against Murray last week at Madrid and I think he will have a very though match here as well against Stan. If Wawrinka manages to serve at a high level and produce his very aggressive shots without making a lot of unforced errors I think that that will put a lot of pressure on Nadal's defense. The odds are just to big to not give Wawrinka a go here because if he brings his A game I truly believe he is going to win.pin

stan worth a little back, after all stan has the best backhand to counter nadal's forehand. nadal isn't in the best shape.
