Diego Schwartzman vs Stan Wawrinka
|Date & Time||Monday August 13, 2018, 10:00 AM (EDT)|
The Line: -- Over/Under:
Swiss tennis superstar, Stan Wawrinka, is set to play at the Cincinnati Masters. The 3-times grand slam winner is set to take on the talented Diego Schwartzman from Argentina. Both these players are extremely talented and will expect to win this match which should ensure that we will be able to witness a great tennis match.
Diego Schwartzman lost to Marin Cilic to get eliminated from the Rogers Cup and although that would have disappointed the Argentine, it was not a bad loss. It will be important for Diego Schwartzman to bounce back quickly since this is the last chance he has to prepare for the US Open which starts very soon. This will not be an easy opening round match since he has drawn a top player in Stan Wawrinka but Diego Schwartzman should expect to win since no contest should be unwinnable for the Argentine superstar.
On the other side of the court, Stan Wawrinka will look to get a win and move into the next round. It has been a long time since the Swiss superstar last won an ATP event and although he has been injured for an age, he will not be happy by the lack of additions to his trophy cabinet. This is another chance for Stan Wawrinka to win a tournament and beating Diego Schwartzman will be a top priority.
While either player could win this match, I am going to suggest that we pick Stan Wawrinka to win. The Swiss superstar is the better player and I think his game is much more suited to the hard courts in the US than that of his opponent. This will not be an easy game for Wawrinka but if he can perform well, he should be able to win this match and move on in the tournament.
