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.
GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!
