Karen Khachanov vs Stanislas Wawrinka | Tennis Betting Tip, Prediction & Odds

Tennis Betting Tip

The second round of the ATP Masters in Montreal brings plenty of exciting matches including the clash between the 6th seed Karen Khachanov and the three-time Grand Slam champion Stanislas Wawrinka. Khachanov is not playing in a good form, so he will try to bounce back against the Swiss who was impressive in the first round.

Karen Khachanov News & Form

Russia’s Karen Khachanov

Russia’s Karen Khachanov

The 23-year old Russian is coming off a three-set defeat to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Washington last week. It was Khachanov’s first appearance since the third-round exit at Wimbledon and his fourth loss in the last eight matches. Likewise, it was Karen’s third straight defeat on a hard court.

Khachanov came to Montreal as World No. 8, and he earned the first-round bye as the 6th seed at the Canadian Open. Karen has an 18-17 record in 2019, still looking for his first final of the season. Khachanov is 6-5 at the ATP Masters this year and 26-22 in his career, while he’s 61-54 on a hard court at the ATP Tour.

Stanislas Wawrinka News & Form

Stan the Man opened with a nice straight-set victory over Grigor Dimitrov, allowing four games in each set to his rival. Wawrinka won 86% of his 1st serve points and converted three of his 11 break points. Also, Stanislas hit 12 aces and allowed just two break points to Dimitrov.

It was Wawrinka’s seventh victory at the ATP Masters this season along with five losses. Stan the Man came to Montreal as World No. 21, and he has a 22-14 record in 2019. Wawrinka is still searching for his first title of the season, losing one final in Rotterdam back in February.

Khachanov vs Wawrinka Head to Head

This will be the third meeting between Karen Khachanov and Stanislas Wawrinka, and the Swiss won both previous matches on a hard court in straight sets. Last year, Wawrinka defeated Khachanov in two tiebreaks in St. Petersburg, while he outlasted Karen 7-6 6-4 in Doha on the first day of 2019.

Betting Odds and Predictions: Khachanov v Wawrinka

Considering the head-to-head record and the players’ current form, the bookmakers listed Stanislas Wawrinka as a slight favourite to beat Karen Khachanov in Montreal. You can take Stan the Man at 7/10 odds with Ladbrokes, while Khachanov is available at 6/5 odds on Sky Bet.

Still, the bookies expect to see a tight battle that could be easily decided in three sets. Hereof, Betway offers the line on the total games at 23.5 with both over and under at 17/20 odds. The price on a tiebreak in the match is 3/4 with Coral.

Our Khachanov vs Wawrinka Betting Tip

Wawrinka defeated Khachanov twice in less than a year, but it could have easily been a different outcome on both occasions. That’s why the line on the total games has been set pretty high. Howsoever, I’m still backing the over.

Khachanov is looking to win his first set against Wawrinka, and the Russian desperately needs to break out of his funk on a hard court. Therefore, I suggest you take the over on the total games at 17/20 odds with Betway. Picking the tiebreak at 3/4 odds with Coral is another interesting option, considering the fact that we saw three tiebreaks in two H2H duels between Wawrinka and Khachanov.
