Metz Open 2022: Daniil Medvedev vs. Stan Wawrinka Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 Metz Open as Daniil Medvedev takes on Stan Wawrinka in the Round of 16 on Thursday, September 22nd, 2022.

Will Daniil Medvedev get the win? Will Stan Wawrinka pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have one of the world’s very best taking on a tennis legend with one of the highest peaks in history. Who will triumph and move through to the quarterfinals at the 2022 Metz Open?

Daniil Medvedev hasn’t had the best season, failing to capture a major title, or even a masters title. After a tough early exit in the US Open, Medvedev has lost his no. 1 ranking spot, dropping to no. 4 in the world. Although he’s still the top seed, he may have to battle some demons this week if he hopes to retain his status as one of the guys to beat on the ATP Tour. Stan Wawrinka, while a legend, has failed to get too many wins lately, so I expect Medvedev to take out the Swiss relatively easily despite some recent mental blocks to book himself a place in the last eight at the 2022 Metz Open.

Stan Wawrinka made a great effort this week already, fighting through the qualifying rounds and the Round of 32, but unfortunately for him, he’s run into the biggest challenge anyone could face in this draw, top seed Daniil Medvedev. If he wants a shot at this one, frankly his only hope is to hope Medvedev isn’t playing well, Wawrinka can blow you off the court, but if Medvedev is playing even at a mediocre level, I expect him to move through to the quarterfinals of the 2022 Metz Open.

Daniil Medvedev and Stan Wawrinka have met three times before, with Daniil Medvedev leading the head to head 2-1.Interestingly enough, all three meetings have come in a major, at the Australian Open, Wimbledon, and US Open. Medvedev took the first 2 meetings, but lost in 2020 down under to the Swiss in 5 sets. This time around, there isn’t really any result I can see aside from Medvedev getting a routine win to kick off his campaign here at the 2022 Metz Open.
