Stan Wawrinka v Ruben Bemelmans Live
For the first time on the tour, we have fifth seeded Swiss Stan Wawrinka taking on the Belgian Ruben Bemelmans, in the round three of the US Open 2015 on Saturday in New York.
Stan Wawrinka continued his excellent start in the tournament by defeating the Korean Chung Hyeon in straight sets 7-6(2), 7-6(4), 7-6(6). Ruben Bemelmans on the other hand found himself to be a bit luck as his opponent Jack Sock retired from the match after being up two sets, owing to an injury. This is the first time this season that the Belgian has reached the third round in a tournament, which also makes it his best run. He has spent most of his time playing on the Challenger circuit, where he has had a decent run. As for the world no. 5, he has had an eventful year so far, having won the Roland Garros, where he defeated Novak Djokovic in the final. In addition to this, he also reached the quarterfinal in the Wimbledon, where he lost to Richard Gasquet. Most recently in the US Open series, he had a similar run in the Cincinnati Masters and this time he lost to Djokovic.
For this match, Stan Wawrinka is certainly the favorite one. He is light years ahead in terms of experience than the Belgian.
