Stan Wawrinka vs. David Ferrer
In my view, this match all comes down to Stan’s mentality. On an indoor court at this stage of each man’s career, Stan should be able to serve big enough to dictate play. It is unclear how much fight Stan brought to his Monday match versus Nadal. Jim Courier questioned Stan’s effort. I doubt many will question Ferrer’s effort. Stan likely wants to make his best career year one that ends in the final four of this event. I think Stan will show more than he did on Monday.
My Prediction: Stan Wawrinka d. David Ferrer 7-5, 6-4
