Stan will win because :

Stan beat Soderling 6:3 6:2
Nadull beat Hănescu 6:3 6:2
Soderling > Hănescu

Ergo: Stan > Nadull Q.E.D.

I remember in 2007 (I think?) Nadal and Wawrinka had a really tough clay court match, it was the final of some tournament. People are underestimating Wawrinka's clay court abilities, if he plays to his ability. I think it will be a lot closer match than 2 and 2 but of course there is only winner -- Rafael Nadal, that's never in doubt.

Yup, he can definitely deal out damage on a claycourt, played a great final vs. Novak in Rome 2008. He’s got a great backhand that he uses to take control of the rallies.

Rafa in two, but will be a sweet display of shot-making from both guys.

Wawa will take a set.

Wawrinka's favorite tournament (or Miami) This will be a brutal match imo. If Nadal's not on, this could be a loss. Nevertheless I'll say Nadal in 3.

It was Stuttgart. Nadal was pretty average in that tournament coming straight after the devestating Wimbledon loss, but Wawrinka certainly handled the shots to the backhand better than Federer usually does. If Nadal plays as well as he has so far on clay it will be pretty routine, anything less than that and he'll have a fight on his hands, agreed.

Nadal in 2...but if Stan starts serving out of his mind and if that backhand of his catches fire it might get competitive...still Nadal in 2.

Wow 3, almost 4, straight single-handers (Kohli, Victor, Wawa). BH of the first 2 held up pretty well against Rafa I thought, Stan should be fine.

Rafael in 2 though.

Over 16% for Stan? That guy will be lucky to win 6 games in the whole match.

Wawrinka is going to be the biggest test for Nadull so far in this shitty clean season.
