Rafa on playing Stan:

This kind of meeting is always a very tough opponent. And it’s a match that we played two times in a Grand Slam final. So, yeah, it’s going to be an important and tough match hopefully for both of us.

The world No. 1  leads the head-to-head with Wawrinka 16-3. The most recent outing between the pair was played out in last year’s Roland-Garros final.

  1. Can Diego Schwartzman take down Cilic today? I hope so. He beat him at the 2017 US Open in the R32: 4-6, 7-5, 7-5, 6-4. And Diego has improved since then. Rooting for the Argentine.


  2. Best of luck to Rafa. Two short sets would be nice.

    I expect Rafa to win but depending on how well Stan has recovered from yesterday’s grueling match this could be a tough one for Rafa. We know Stan is another fighter.
