The Swiss Civil War: Roger Federer vs. Stanislas Wawrinka
Next week, these two competitors will be teammates as Switzerland tries to win the Davis Cup title for the first time. Today, they will face-off for a spot in the championship round of the World Tour Finals. I think Wawrinka has a better chance to spring an upset than Nishikori despite the fact that Roger has been playing at a high level throughout this event. First, Stan has won several big matches this year and knows what it is like to successfully challenge the top tier of tennis.
Federer has more variety than Stan, but Stan can hit through anyone. If Stan’s power paralyzes Roger as it did for 1 1/2 sets at Wimbledon, he’s got a shot. Still, Roger’s round robin form was outstanding.
My Prediction: Roger Federer d. Stanislas Wawrinka 6-3, 7-6
