Stanislas Wawrinka has enjoyed another fairly successful season this year, though as the world No. 16, he’s not in contention to qualify for the ATP World Tour Finals. His form throughout the season has been good, and he was playing well in Basel last week before being ousted in straight sets by fellow countryman Roger Federer.
Wawrinka will begin his title charge this week in Paris with what promises to be a tricky first round clash against America’s John Isner. Isner is currently the world No. 25, and he’s got the necessary weapons to give the Swiss No. 2 a big test. Having hit 751 aces throughout the season, it should be taken for granted that Isner has a chance if he serves to the best of his ability.
After close matches in 2009 and 2010, Wawrinka and Isner are tied at 1-1 in their overall head to head record. Tuesday’s contest has the makings of a thriller. We could be in for a three-setter, and neither player will be expecting an easy time.
