Goffin vs Wawrinka (By: Iniestaone)
First round match from ATP Rome between Goffin (#23) and Wawrinka (#29)
I will keep going for Wawrinka despite losing out on him last time against Nadal. I had backed him not to lose by more than 4.5 games and he lost by 9 but it was truly a superhuman performance by Nadal. I was in awe at how well he was playing, Stan was doing everything right but Nadal gave a vintage performance where he was practically flawless. I still think Wawrinka's progress this season holds up.
Goffin poor form continued in Madrid as he lost to Fucsovics in the first round 4-6 5-7, I didn't watch the match but I can see that it followed the pattern of his lack of confidence and belief in his own game, he went up to 4-0 quickly in the first set but fell apart and lost six games in a row. In the second set he got the first break to 3-2 but was broken immediately after and lost it 5-7.
Taking into account what i've seen from these two in Estoril and Madrid, I think its safe to trust Wawrinka to win this with a margin of three games or more
