It would not be overly ambitious to say that Stanislas Wawrinka is the most in form player going around in the professional tennis arena at the moment. The way the 28 years old Swiss player is dominating his opponents is just incredible.
In the ongoing BNP Paribas Open, while the other top players had had problems in their first match, Wawrinka just took his opponent Andreas Seppi apart and qualified for the third round in style. He just lost a couple of games in the entire match which suggests what kind of mood he was in. The match didn’t last for even an hour. It was over in just about 45 minutes or so.
2014 is proving to be an absolutely dream year for Wawrinka. He has not put a foot wrong this year. He has hardly seemed to be out of nick in any of his matches and it’s that consistency which has helped him in getting to his career best ranking. He is the no. 3 player in the world at this point of time.
Talking to the reporters at the end of the match against Seppi, Wawrinka said, “I have been playing with aggression this season and that’s helping me.”
“As far as today’s match is concerned, everything went perfectly. I would like to keep it up.”
Wawrinka must know that he is not going to have things this easy in his next match as the player that he is going to face has also been in terrific form this season.
In the third round at Indian Wells, the Swiss no. 1 will face the South African player Kevin Anderson who has had a 13-4 record in 2014. He might be a bit low in the rankings, but, he can give Wawrinka some fight in this kind of form; that’s for sure.
