A fierce match is set to take place in the quarterfinal of the US Open 2015 as the fifth seeded Swiss Stan Wawrinka will once again take on the South African Kevin Anderson, on Wednesday evening in New York. Stan Wawrinka v Kevin Anderson betting tips can be found here.
Wawrinka beat Anderson in straight sets to make the semi-finals.
Wawrinka reached the final eight by moving past the American Donald Young 6-4, 1-6, 6-3, 6-4, in a little under three hours. The world no. 5 produced 11 aces, but did make 48 unforced errors in the duration of the match.
On the other hand, Anderson just delivered the biggest upset of the tournament by defeating the third seed Andy Murray 7-6(5), 6-3, 6-7(2), 7-6(0), with the help of 25 aces. The 15th seed put up an excellent show, creating 81 winners and winning 79 percent points in first service.
That win marks the first time this season that Anderson has reached the quarterfinal of a Grand Slam. In Wimbledon, he lost to Novak Djokovic in round of 16, and incurred a similar defeat in the Australian Open as well. He appears to be in an excellent form off lately, having won the Winston-Salem Open and following it with a brilliant performance at the Flushing Meadows.
Wawrinka on the other hand has failed to move past the quarterfinal since Roland Garros, where he won the title ultimately. In the Cincinnati Masters, he lost to Djokovic in straight sets.
This match is definitely too close to call, given the history between the two players. However, I will have to go with Wawrinka on this one, owing to his better form.
