Their head to head record is level at 3-3. Their last match was on clay in May last year. It was at the French Open and Wawrinka won in straight sets. He has won both their clay matches.
Wawrinka was put under pressure by Kohlschreiber yesterday. Wawrinka took a tight opening set and In set 2 Kohlschreiber had 3 break points for a 5-4 lead but Wawrinka saved them all and held. He took the set 7-5.
Simon has straight sets wins behind him. He was just too consistent for Dimitrov in the last round.
I think Simon will get chances but Wawrinka is serving well and it won’t be easy to break him. I don’t see a lot of value on Wawrinka at 1.43 and I expect a higher price on him. I will wait for 1.70
