Ilya Ivashka vs Stan Wawrinka – Match Predictions

With both players setting their sights on a place in the second round of the Rome Masters, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Ilya Ivashka to Not Go Down in Straight Sets

To be fair, the past few weeks have not particularly been very pleasant for Ilya Ivashka. He has lost three singles matches in a row, winning just one set in the process. It’s important to point out, however, that Stan Wawrinka hasn’t fared much better than his Belarusian opponent in recent months. The three-time grand slam champion suffered four losses in his last six singles matches across all competitions.

It’s also worth mentioning that even when Wawrinka wins, he tends to surrender a set. The Swiss player dropped at least one set in all of his last seven singles matches, 12 of his last 13 matches too. Taking everything into account, we are fairly confident that Stan Wawrinka will not win this match in straight sets.

Over 22.5 Total Games

We’ve already established that both players have had their fair share of struggles lately; with that in mind, let’s take a look at the over/under games market. The over/under line for this match is set at 22.5; and while that may seem a bit too high, it’s worth mentioning that three of Stan Wawrinka’s last five singles matches ended in three sets, and four of those featured 22 or more games. Keeping in mind that three of Ilya Ivashka’s last five matches also ended in maximum sets, we believe that this match will go all the way to three sets, comfortably going above this line.

Stan Wawrinka

Like today’s opponent, Stan Wawrinka has been going through a rough patch recently; he won just two of his last six singles matches, surrendering at least one set in all of those fixtures. The three-time grand slam champion will fancy his chances against an out-of-form Ilya Ivashka today.
