Tallon Griekspoor is the number 1 seed but all eyes will be on the mercurial Stan Wawrinka. With indifferent displays to call upon, he has the penchant to amaze and lease in disarray. The hard-working Giron will have to live up to the occasion, making it an exciting duel.
Stan Wawrinka to win @ 53/100 (1.53)
Despite not being the player he used to be, it is difficult to bet against Wawrinka. The Swiss ace impressed in the Davis Cup and US Open outings. On the other hand, Giron has been struggling for results and has lost five of last six fixtures. Given the American’s poor form, coupled with Wawrinka’s timelessness, we are backing the Swiss ace to triumph in this duel.
2-0 to Stan Wawrinka @ 29/10 (3.90)
While we are backing Wawrinka to triumph, the manner of victory remains a tough call. In losing causes, Giron has not taken a set off his rivals in his recent five defeats. While Wawrinka has not been as dominant, he is coming of a 2-0 victory over British number 1, Cameron Norrie. Based on this, we expect a straight-set victory for the three-time Grand Slam winner.

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far this season for the latest tennis betting tips and predictions here.
Stan Wawrinka preview
Like Andy Murray, Wawrinka has been on a path of resurgence. Only at the Australian Open or Banja Luka did he flounder at the first hurdle, getting past in each of his other 14 tournament appearances. After quarter-final finishes in Rotterdam, Marseille and Bordeaux Challenger, his best run came in Umag, where he was the runner-up.
Marcos Giron preview
With a 23-24 win/loss record, the American ace has struggled to give his best. His poor form is exemplified by the fact that only for the fourth time since his debut in 2011 does Maroc have a losing record on hard court. As many as nine tournament entries have finished with a first-round exit while he does have four quarter-final finishes to boast about.
