Wawrinka vs Pella (By: Iniestaone)
Second round match from ATP Madrid between Wawrinka (#34) and Pella (#26)
Final tip for Wednesday is for Wawrinka to win in straight sets. I see no real path to a set for Pella here, he is in big form this season but he is not one to back against top tier players, he reached the quarters in Monte Carlo and lost to Nadal, lost to Thiem in the quarters in Barcelona and to Bautista Agut in the quarters in Munich.
He did defeat Medvedev here in Madrid in his first round but as I've said multiple times, Medvedev is not a good claycourter while Pella is and Pella was just a small underdog in that match for that exact reason.
Wawrinka completely tore apart Herbert in what was actually supposed to be quite an even match, the Madrid courts are fast and they have shown to benefit big servers which Herbert is as he plays the serve volley style and he has been doing great on clay this season but he still had no chance against a Wawrinka who is piercing winners on these fast courts. He will dominate every rally against Pella who has nowhere near the firepower Wawrinka has in his shots and I can't see Pella taking a set here. I was afraid of backing Wawrinka in the first round as his form is still questionable but after seeing his performance there I am convinced that he will take another straight set victory. He can match Pella's clay court abilities and on top of that he can outhit him from the baseline.
