Stanimal & Shapovalov

Wawrinka is in a bad shape! Very very bad!...has anyone seen him most recently playing in the indoor tournament? (I forgot which one it was...i don't keep track on all these worthless mickey mouse tournaments for mugs anyway...)

The 2 in a practice session and they're really going for it!
I like those slices from Shapo in the first point, then nothing. He needs those slices, especially on BH returns. That's interesting to me bc as a Fedfan, I've been wanting Fedr to BH topspin more over slices (and he finally did that in 2017), yet Shapo is the opposite :p.

Shapo and Wawa are similar in that Wawa only started winning once he fixed his serve.

People fixate on Stans groundgame and forget he was a double fault machine back in the day. I used to call him the prince of the double fault: you could always count on him to double fault on break point.

Similarly, Dennis loves double faulting at the worse possible times. Don’t care how impressive the rest of his game is, Shapo ain’t winning titles till he fixes that second serve.

Wawrinka's never had a high double%.

When you double fault is more important than how many times. I grew up in Switzerland and my friends and I have been following Wawa for a long time. It used to be a running joke, break point down, pre Stanimal Stan would reliably double fault.

If you look at career break points saved, I’m sure Wawa is mediocre at best.
