World Tour Finals 2015: Stan Wawrinka vs. David Ferrer Prediction

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…
