Stan Wawrinka v Andy Murray Head to Head
The pair have played each other 20 times in their careers. The Brit leads the tally with 12 victories against the Swiss’ eight. Five of the meeting have been the Grand Slams, with two of them being classic five-setters.
Wawrinka Looking to Win First Title in Over Two Years
The last time Wawrinka won a title was almost two and a half years ago in Geneva. Since then, he has reached a Grand Slam final, suffered a career-threatening injury, dropped out of the top 250 in rankings, made a comeback, and broke back into the top 20 once again. After a steady start to the season, the Swiss have really come into his own in the second half.
After his strong showing at the US Open, he missed almost a month of action due to a knee injury. And after going through two tough games earlier this week, he seemed to be back to his best in his straight-sets victory against Jannik Sinner.
Murray on a Roll, Can He Win?
Just like his opponent, this is Andy Murray’s best performance since the 2017 French Open. After almost succumbing to multiple injuries and calling it quits, Murray has shown great strength and resolve since his comeback on tour.
After starting out slowly and in his own words taking it easy on his body, he seems to be getting some of his old forms back lately. He reached the quarter-final in Beijing and went down in a hard-fought second-round match at the Shanghai Masters. This week he has come through some grueling matches to reach the finals.
Former world number one and three-time Grand Slam champion has already recovered over 250 ranking positions since his comeback on tour. Regardless of the result in the final, he is likely to jump another 100 positions at least and break into the top 150 when the next set of rankings are announced.
Stan Wawrinka v Andy Murray Predictions & Tips
Wawrinka and Murray have given everyone some epic encounters in the past. And despite both of them coming back from the brink and battling injuries at this stage of the career, they have shown that class is permanent. Both the players have been serving well this week, and it is expected to be a close contest. Murray would be content with the effort he has put in this week, regardless of the result in the final.
The extra motivation that Wawrinka has of not having won a title despite playing close to 100 matches in the last two years may prove to be decisive.
