Stan Wawrinka has made it through to the second round of the 2019 US Open. At this stage of the tournament, Wawrinka will play against Jeremy Chardy from France.

During the victory, Stan Wawrinka impressed with his receiving as he won close to 40% of his receiving points which allowed him to break his opponent’s serve on 5 occasions. While the receiving was impressive, Wawrinka lacked consistency with his serve. Stan Wawrinka hit 15 aces and looked dominant at times but made unforced errors to lose 4 service games. It has been a tough few months for Stan Wawrinka as he has not made the quarterfinals of a tournament since the French Open.

Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Stan Wawrinka to win this match. Wawrinka is a significantly stronger player and he seems to have an edge over Chardy. Wawrinka looked good during his previous match and I see him winning this contest and making it through to the third round of the tournament.
