2.Advanced and statistics
Wawrinka easily qualified in the second round, passing by Ruben Bemelmans after a convincing match, in which the Swiss won about 80% of the points played with the first service, without even giving a chance to break the opponent.Former World number 3, Stan hopes to improve his performance at Wimbledon this year, after his last tournaments in 2016 and 2018, he was eliminated every time in the second round.Wawrinka’s top performance in London is the finals quarter-finals in 2014 and 2015.
Opelka had an easy task in the inaugural round against Stebe, a player ranked outside the top 500. The service was the American’s main weapon, which served no less than 11 during the game, losing its service once.Victory against Stebe is welcomed and interrupts a black four-party victory for Opelka, begun in Rome in May.For the American, this is the first spot on the Wimbledon main picture, with two attempts in the past, both failed in qualifying.
Tennis Prediction of the Day Wawrinka vs Opelka
Normally, if Wawrinka is in full physical shape, he should not have problems, the quality of the Swiss game being superior. In the previous match, Stan showed his appetite and excellent physical disposition, which I expect to see in this second game as well.
