Our favourite Stan Wawrinka vs Yoshihito Nishioka – match predictions

Wawrinka impressed in his Umag journeys with a final appearance against Alexei Popyrin. He now returns to familiar grounds but will have to tame the erratic Nishioka to progress at Flushing Meadows.

Stan Wawrinka to win @ 13/25 (1.52)

Despite his struggles on the road, Nishioka has brought his best in the Grand Slam arenas. This might not be the case this time around. The Japanese ace has lost six of his last seven matches and takes on the challenge of an in-form Wawrinka, who seems to have put his fitness behind him of late. The Swiss ace reached the finals in Umag and proceeded to get wins under his belt in Cincinnati as well. Based on their respective form, we are backing a victory for the three-time Grand Slam champion.

3-0 to Stan Wawrinka @ 21/10 (3.10)

Nishioka’s woes started at the culmination of the festivities at Roland Garros where he suffered a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Tomas Martin Etcheverry. This was followed by a 3-0 rout at the hands of Daniel Elahi Galan. He did put up fights in Atlanta and Washington but to no avail. Against a resurgent Wawrinka, we do not anticipate a change in his fortunes. With his fitness back and his supremely gifted tennis mind, we expect the Swiss ace to claim a 3-0 victory against the Japanese ace.
