Jannik Sinner vs. Stan Wawrinka Match Preview
For the third straight year, Jannik Sinner advanced into the fourth round of the Indian Wells Masters after scoring another straight-sets win. Sinner defeated a second Frenchman in as many days in Adrian Mannarino, converting one of his two break points in the first set and then pinching the second set in a tiebreak. He stayed solid on serve throughout the match and did not face a single break point on his own serve.
Stan Wawrinka, meanwhile, exacted revenge on Holger Rune, beating the Next Gen star in a rematch of their chaotic Paris Masters encounter. Wawrinka cruised through the opening set and looked well on his way to victory when he went 5-3 up and had a match point on his serve. But the Swiss dragged a forehand putaway wide and then blew a 5-2 lead in the second set tiebreak to give Rune a route back into the contest. Wawrinka, however, regrouped and did not let that moment deter his brilliant performance during the day as he went on to break the young Dane deep in the decider and served to love on his way to the fourth round of the Indian Wells Masters.
Jannik Sinner vs. Stan Wawrinka Prediction and Pick
Jannik Sinner and Stan Wawrinka are tied at 2-2 in their head-to-head, with Sinner winning their only clash this year in Rotterdam in straight sets. After a physically and mentally draining match on Monday, Wawrinka will need to start afresh again. But with Sinner looking assured from the baseline in the first week, he should fend off a spirited charge from the 37-year-old who has turned back time at the 2023 Indian Wells Masters.
