Bet and win
At the age of seventeen, the athlete made his debut on a professional level. From 2002 to 2003, he won three ITF Futures series championships, and from 2003 to 2004 he won four singles in the Challenger series tournaments.
In June 2006, Stan got his ATP debut league title, defeating the upcoming tennis superstar Novak Djokovic in the final game.
Due to this, he climbed into the first hundred of the ATP rating. A few months later, the Swiss reached the third round of the Australian Open in pairs, and immediately after that showed a similar result at the French Open.
In 2008, the athlete reached the final round of the championship of the ATP Masters 1000 series, having defeated several opponents from the top 15 of the world ranking along the way.
In the summer of the same season, Stan went to the Beijing Olympics, where, together with Roger Federer, he won the gold doubles.
In 2014, the Swiss for the first time celebrated his victory in the grand slam tournament, beating all competitors in the Australian Open. In the final meeting, Stan defeated Rafael Nadal himself in 4 sets.
Then he won for the first time in the championship of the ATP Masters 1000 series, taking up in the final over Federer. This gave him the opportunity to immediately climb to the fourth position in the world ranking table.
The following season, Stan triumphed for the second time in a grand slam tournament, winning the final round of the French Open Djokovic. Wawrinka also added three more ATP championship titles to his collection.
In 2016, Stan again achieved maximum success at the most prestigious tennis tournament, winning the open American championship. In the decisive game for the title, the Swiss again met with Djokovic and again outplayed him. Thanks to this, Stan finished season 3 in a row as the fourth racket of the world.
A year later, the Swiss were defeated by his compatriot Roger Federer in the semifinal meeting of the Australian Open tournament. Then he won his next ATP series championship, which took place in his homeland.
In 2018, due to an injury, Stan missed most of the season and therefore fell out of the top 50 of the ATP rating.
Wawrinka is not easy to win in this tournament, but in the experience, Stan passes his rivals. What is only worth his win against Daniil Medvedev. The Swiss lost the match along the way but managed to turn the tide of the fight and snatch victory (6-2, 2-6, 4-6, 7-6, 6-2). For the entire match on account of Wawrinka 64 unforced errors. But at the same time, he won the active point 71 times. As you can see, Stan tried to attack, and this brought him success.
In the previous three rounds, the representative of Switzerland dealt with Damir Dяumhur, Andreas Seppi and John Isner.
Alexander, at the age of sixteen, first participated in the junior grand slam tournament, playing at the Australian Open. In the same season, he reached the semifinal stage of the open American championship, where he was defeated, and also reached the third round of Wimbledon. A little later, the young tennis player made his way to the final round of Roland Garros, but could not defeat the opponent because of the inconvenient soil cover.
But already in the next season, an athlete from Germany won the Australian Open championship title among juniors, having outplayed the opponent from the USA in two sets.
In 2014, the tennis player beat all competitors at the ATP Challenger Championship, which took place in his homeland. This allowed him to play at the championship in Hamburg, where elite players competed. Alexander sensationally made it to the 1/2 finals, defeating an opponent from the top ten of the world ranking table along the way. Thanks to this, he improved his position in the ranking by almost seven hundred points.
A year later, the athlete reached the final at the ATP 250 series tournament, and immediately after that Challenger won in tandem with his sibling.
In the fall of 2016, Alexander got his ATP world tour debut title, taking up over Wawrinka in the final round.
In 2017, the tennis player successfully proved himself in grand slam tournaments, reaching the 3rd round of the Australian Open and the 4th round of the Wimbledon Championship. Then he managed to win five championships of the ATP-series. As a result, he finished that season as the fourth racket of the world.
In 2018, Alexander won two more ATP championships, which were held in Munich and Madrid. Then he entered the quarterfinal stage of the French Open, which is his best result in grand slam tournaments. At the end of the season in the final round of the ATP tour, he lost to Serb Djokovic.
In 2019, again, together with his brother, Alexander won the ATP doubles competition in Mexico.
Zverev too easily passed his previous opponents. First, Alexander dealt with Marco Cecchinato, and then beat Egor Gerasimov and Fernando Verdasco. In the last match, the German defeated Andrei Rublev (6-4, 6-4, 6-4).
More recently, Zverev played terribly in the ATR Cup, where he lost to all his rivals with a bang. This even led to a nervous breakdown and his material father. But in such a short period of time, he managed to pull himself together and now demonstrates a completely different game.
Statistics and personal meetings
- In full-time meetings, the score is 2-0 in favor of Zverev.
- In all face-to-face meetings, Wawrinka won at least a set.
- At this tournament, Alexander has not lost a single game.
Stan Wawrinka vs Alexander Zverev Prediction
Zverev is a small favorite of the meeting, but this fight is unlikely to be easy for him. It seems that Wawrinka caught courage and without a fight from the court will not leave. The German has an unstable psyche. It is easy to unbalance. Recent events in the APR Cup have confirmed this.
We do not believe that the match will end quickly. Due to his experience, Wawrinka will impose a fight on the opponent, and perhaps even be able to snatch victory. We suggest taking a chance.
