Default Wimbledon RD 3 Fernando Verdasco vs Stan Wawrinka (4)

4th meeting between with Fernando Verdasco holding a 2-1 head to head winning record. However since the start of 06, they have only faced once which was in 2012. First meeting off clay, who do you have here?

Fer or Stan?

Verdasco has played consecutive five-setters, wondering how much left for him.

Come on Verdasco, I want to believe.

I want to see wawrinka serve and volley more like he did yesterday. He's been having a lot if trouble rallying, which wasn't the case last year. He seems to want to either go for the difficult shot, or he's insure of which shot is appropriate. He sent a too many easy shots long yesterday so I don't know what was going on. But he was very very successful with the serve and volley. That should help later down the line I think.

If he manages to secure a couple break points on verdasco through serve and volley, then I would suggest trying to rally more after that for practice and he can attempt the difficult shot from the baseline.

If Verdasco is decent, this will be a close match. But his recent results and performances don't exactly scream decent.

Goodness knows what Verdasco is going to turn up here, if recent matches are to go by then there'll be several different ones throughout the match.

I don't know about anyone else but does anyone get the feeling Wawrinka has been quite flat in the tournament? Sure he's won both matches in straight sets but maybe suffering a bit of a comedown after Roland Garros?

I'd still heavily favour him to win here but I think Verdasco could cause him trouble.

Wawrinka in 4, but if Verdasco gets hot it could be tough because grass doesn't allow Stan as much time to fight fire with fire.

I think Verdasco is probably underrated on grass as well but he's such a streaky player that it makes him difficult to predict.

Anyone catch him against Thiem or Klizan (may not have been streamed)?

Verdasco will grind down Wawrinka with his slice.
