Grigor Dimitrov – Stan Wawrinka Match Prediction | 12-08-2019

The same match that Cilic controlled for about 3 and a half sets. Not many people expected him to win against last years quarter-finalist Marin Cilic in a close match. Once everyone starts losing hope on Dimitrov he starts beating players like Cilic in the most unexpected ways. He managed to come back in the game and finished the business with Croatian in 5 sets. But Dimitrov showed why he used to be considered as the top tier player. Dimitrov almost lost to Tipsarevic in the opening round and was close to elimination. Currently 46th in the world but he is capable of so much more.

The pair will be eager to get back to the heights of their previous high rankings. Wawrinka is still outside the top 20 following injury while Dimitrov was No.5 this time last year, now sitting outside the top 40. The headline match on the mens side has to be the one between former French Open championStan Wawrinka andGrigor Dimitrov.

In this season he has 1 ATP final (in Rotterdam) and that is his best success so far. Wawrinka is in this moment too good for Dimitrov, so I expect easy win in 2 sets. He is without big result so far in this season. He has 21 wins and 14 losses in this season. Wawrinka last match played at Wimbledon, where he lost in 2nd round vs Opelka. Dimitrov is #54 on ATP ranking right now. Last week he played in Los Cabos, where he lost in 1/8 final vs Pella. He has 15-13 w/l record in this season. Stan Wawrinka - Grigor Dimitrov, ATP Montreal, 1st roundWawrinka is #22 on ATP ranking in this moment.

This heavyweight third-round clash promises to be a close affair going by previous meetings as the pair have split the eight matches they have contested. Wawrinka was the victor at the other three majors, and given that he's likely to be the fresher of the two, the elder statesman is favoured to triumph once more. Having previously faced off at the Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open, this duel means they will have met at every Grand Slam.

Harrisons speed and serve will allow him to make it a match, but it will most likely end with Anderson coming through. But, Kevin Anderson has been playing the best tennis of his career, and you never know whos going to show up when Ryan Harrison steps on the court. Tracey:When big serving South African takes on the erstwhile American, its definitely a match worth watching.

On the other side of the coin, Grigor Dimitrov has looked in poor form. Dimitrov has only won 1 match since the end of the French Open. Dimitrov has won 63% of his matches at the Rogers Cup with 2 quarter final appearances and 1 semifinal appearance. Returning to the Rogers Cup should be a boost for Grigor Dimitrov as he has an outstanding record at this tournament. It has been a poor few years for Grigor Dimitrov as he has struggled since the start of the 2018 season.

These top players usually meet up in a quarter or semi match. Dimitrovs 2018 hasnt gone as well as hed hoped and his confidence falters in the biggest moments. These two will fight it out but well see Wawrinka come through. Tracey:Hard to believe this is a first-round match. Wielding one of the best backhands in mens tennis, Wawrinka has the tools to take out Dimitrov in straight sets. But, Stans wildcard entry puts him on a tough path from the start.

The obvious similarity is between their backhands, with both hitting single-handers. Though both men may appear to have similar games at first glance, their strengths are quitedifferent. But whilst Wawrinkas backhand is a hammer of a shot, and surely the most powerful in the game, Dimitrovs backhand is a real weakness. The Bulgarian at timesstruggles to come over the ball and it is not entirely uncommon for his backhand to break down.

While theyre always fun to watch, dont expect to see more than three sets as Nadal will surely move on to the second round. Certainly, Ferrer will make Nadal work for it, but with Nadal in top form were not looking at an upset. Tracey Essex:These two Spaniards have faced off 30 times and Nadal clearly leads with 80% of the wins.

He can dictate play with his forehand, and his first serve is a weapon, but there is a fragility in those areas of his game as well. Dimitrovs backhand, appealing as it is aesthetically, is nothing like the weapon Wawrinka boasts. When Dimitrovs confidence in the shot falters even a little, it rapidly escapes and he finds the net far too often from that wing, particularly when facing high balls. When he is in full cry he is a sight to behold, but timidity gets the better of him too often.
