Taylor Fritz v Stan Wawrinka Live
For the next two weeks, tennis lovers will be treated to the highest standards of the game at Wimbledon, the 3rd Grand Slam of the year. One of the players with a real chance of winning this title is Stan Wawrinka who opens his campaign against Taylor Harry Fritz.
This will be the first meeting between these two tennis players. Stan Wawrinka is ranked 5th in the latest ATP World Rankings, while the 18 year old Taylor Fritz is ranked 63rd. Stan Wawrinka comes into this game in good form, with recent wins against Jeremy Chardy (6-4, 6-3, 7-5), Victor Troicki (7-6(5) 6-7(7) 6-3 6-2), and Albert Ramos Vinolas (6-2 6-1 7-6(7)). All of these wins were in the French Open. The World Number 5 however suffered back to back defeats against Andy Murray at Roland Garros (6-4 6-2 4-6 6-2), and Fernando Verdasco (6-2 7-6(3)). Taylor Harry Fritz comes into this game in dismal form, winning only one of his last five matches. This win was against Fabrice Martin (3-6, 7-66, 6-1). The young professional has suffered recent defeats against Borna Coric (6-3, 6-1, 6-3), Roger Federer (6-4, 5-7, 6-4), Yuichi Suqita (7-64, 2-6, 6-3), and Adrian Mannarino (6-3, 6-2).
Stan Wawrinka is by far the better player, and I see him winning this game in straight sets.
