Rafa has a 14-3 record against Wawrinka, but it was Wawrinka who won their last clay-court meeting, in the Rome quarter-finals last year.

Rafa on playing Stan:

Stan, he’s always very dangerous opponent and he’s a great player. I know when he’s playing well, it’s difficult to stop him because he’s able to hit so hard the ball from every part of the court. He’s able to serve so good, too.

We’ll see. Will be a tough one. I only can think about myself. I have to continue the same way as today, fighting for every point, playing with my strategy. We’ll see if I am able to play like today or maybe a little bit better.

Rafa is looking to win his first title of the season this week, and claim a record-equalling 28th ATP World Tour Masters 1000 crown, which would be his first in almost two years, since lifting the trophy in Madrid 2014.

Here are the matches they have played against each other:

GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!

    Rafa just remember this things while facing stan

    Be calm not agressive play
    attitude – be angry
    High bounce on the ball, a good length of shots and drop shot will do great and yes most important position urself better for forehand…….
