Stan Wawrinka is a 35-year-old Swiss ATP ranked 17th.
And Wawrinka is one of the best tennis players of his generation, he stays in the top even though he is not so young. In any case, Stan made some extremely interesting performances, especially in the context in which he was contemporary with Big 4 / Big 3.
Because Wawrinka has no less than 3 grand slam tournaments in the palmares, at the Australian Open, Roland Garros and US Open, in its good days being able to easily beat Djokovic or Federer.
Unfortunately for Wawrinka, a very serious injury followed, a complicated knee operation, saying that he will never play high level tennis again. But he returned and is currently in the top 20.

And Evans is at a good time in his career, having some problems in the past, being suspended for cocaine use. He is back on the circuit, and Daniel proves that he is a very talented top 50 ATP tennis player, who one day can beat anyone.
As an example, this year he has a victory with Rublev, still a superior tennis player.

🎾Statistics of direct matches Stan Wawrinka vs Daniel Evans
In the direct meetings the score is 3-0 for Wawrinka, the last one taking place in 2019 at Queen’s when Stan won 6-3 6-4.
Tennis Prediction of the Day Stan Wawrinka vs Daniel Evans
Stan Wawrinka is one of the best athletes in the world, and his form is quite high, playing well at Roland Garros.
Service is one of his weapons and as a double fault he does not exaggerate, having recently 0 with Musetti, 1 with Murray, 1 with Koepfer or 2 with Gaston, in a match of 5 sets. Daniel Evans is in a modest form, on the slag coming after 3 consecutive defeats.
Now indoor hard drive should feel better, but its service has been more vulnerable lately. As a double he has recently 1 with Wild, 2 with Hurkacz, 2 with Raonic or 7 with Rublev. So I think Evans will make several double mistakes, my prediction going on this idea at a share offered by Betfair.
