The second round of an ATP US Open Grand Slam, USA (hard). This will be a very interesting matchup for the second round as two very well known veterans will face off against each other. To have more insights on this ATP Stanislas Wawrinka vs Jeremy Chardy match, please check out the preview below.
34 years old, currently 24th ranked veteran has reached this stage after defeating J. Sinner by 3-1 in the first round. Wawrinka hasn’t looked as dominant in that match as many expected, but he still managed to overcome dropping of 3rd set and finished the match by winning the 4th set 6-3. This should be a tougher match for Wawrinka as J. Chardy is no stranger on the biggest stage. Even though stylistically Chardy is a good match for Wawrinka and Switzerland born player hasn’t dropped a single match against the Frenchman, Stanislas will have to show a lot better form in order to win tomorrow.Wawrinka has dropped out of this tournament in R32 last year and winning this match tomorrow would add up some points to his wallet.
32 years old, currently 74th ranked Frenchman had a very tough first-round match against H. Hurkacz. Chardy managed to win the match in 5 sets (3-6, 6-3, 6-7, 6-1, 6-4). Even though Chardy is mostly a clay ground player, he’s been pretty solid playing on the hard surface throughout the years as well, especially at the most important tournaments of the year, including US Open. Jeremy is a very experienced and a smart player, who manages to exploit an opponent’s weak points very well. The main question mark is how will he recover after such a long and hard match yesterday. Anyway, he had a lot of preparation for this tournament so we expect him to do his best tomorrow.
