Stan Wawrinka vs. Alexander Zverev (-145) | O/U: 41
- Time: 10:30 p.m. ET
- Where: Rod Laver Arena
- H2H: Zverev leads 2-0
Zverev remained in excellent form during his fourth-round victory over Andrey Rublev. However, it’s still an unknown as to whether the German can keep his cool against one of the most mentally tough and intimidating players on tour in Wawrinka.
The Swiss regarded his fourth-round victory over Daniil Medvedev as his best performance since returning from a 2017 knee injury. But he will need to overcome a younger, fresher set of legs and a dynamic young talent – whose only flaws crop up as mental errors.
Stan will be high on confidence, but fatigue will no doubt play a factor. Despite going just one and a half sets against John Isner, he’s been on the court nearly three hours longer than Zverev, while playing an additional 167 points and 35 games.
That has to take a toll on his 34-year-old body, and players have not fared well in this tournament after surviving five-set matches; Wawrinka has played two in the past six days.
