Stan Wawrinka v Gael Monfils Head to Head
This will be the sixth meeting between Wawrinka and Monfils, in a head-to-head that Wawrinka currently leads 3-2. That last two meetings have been at the Australian Open 2011 and the 2017 US Open, both going to Wawrinka. However, the circumstances, current fitness, form and the surface are all different to back then.
Wawrinka Looks to Reclaim Rotterdam Title
After spending 2017 and 2018 with injuries, Stan Wawrinka has started to look like his own self this week at Rotterdam ,as he qualifies for the finals. Since his return from injury, Wawrinka has had some good wins and some disappointing losses, and what has been noticeably lacking is consistency.
Wawrinka has had a convincing week with straight set wins over Benoit Paire, Milos Raonic, and Denis Shapovalov. He had a tight semi final against Japanese Kei Nishikori, but played the big points better and was able to pull through in three sets.
Among the most effective offensive players on the tour, Wawrinka showed some of those skills this week. He was able to hit winners from nothing with his backhand and forehand. His big serve was also at its best in the semi-final match against Nishikori.
Can Monfils Keep His Momentum Going?
Monfils has not been in the best of form in recent times, but looks to have turned it around. A semi-finalist last week in Sofia and now in the championship match at Rotterdam; a win here will give his confidence a world of good with significantly more self-belief.
Monfils has done well this week in beating David Goffin, Andrea Seppi, and Damir Dzumhur relatively comfortably, getting to the semi finals. His most satisfying win was against Daniil Medvedev, who beat him last week in Sofia, and has been in some of his best form. It was a tight semi-final with change of control continuously, with Monfils winning eventually in three sets.
With supreme athleticism and a powerful forehand, Monfils is not an easy customer for any opponent.
Wawrinka v Monfils Predictions & Tips
