Wawrinka vs Fucsovics predictions

When the draw for the 2019 Indian Wells Masters was conducted, attention was immediately drawn to a potential third-round clash between five-time champion Roger Federer and compatriot Stan Wawrinka, which would be a rematch of the 2017 final and just the second time they’ve met since Wawrinka’s multiple knee surgeries in late 2017, which dealt a blow to the three-time Grand Slam champion’s career he’s still recovering from.

Wawrinka has lived up to his side of the bargain so far with a first-round victory over Dan Evans, a high-quality encounter which saw him have to come back from a set down, while Federer looks certain to breeze past Peter Gojowczyk on Sunday – but before we can put ‘Fedrinka’ in our diaries for Tuesday, Wawrinka needs to get past Marton Fucsovics.

Hungary’s Fucsovics is hardly a household name but the 27-year-old is currently ranked at a career-high world no. 31 and it’s no accident. He enjoyed a great 2018 season which included a title at the Geneva Open and his 2019 season has included a runner-up finish in Sofia, and 500-level ATP quarterfinal appearances in Rotterdam and Dubai, where he pushed Federer hard. With Wawrinka still up and down, and rarely at his best at Indian Wells, could Fucsovics earn another shot at Federer? 

Wawrinka vs Fucsovics match stats

  • Wawrinka is 2-1 vs Fucsovics
  • The Swiss is 22-10 at Indian Wells with defeats to the likes of Robin Haase on his record
  • Fucsovics is 10-6 in 2019 and continuously improving

Wawrinka vs Fucsovics betting tips

Wawrinka leads the head-to-head with Fucsovics 2-1 and has won both their hard-court meetings – but one of those matches was extremely close, with Fucsovics leading 6-1 before losing the subsequent two sets in tie-breaks.

The three-time Grand Slam champion is undoubtedly the better player but he still hasn’t recovered that hard-won consistency after his long break from the game in 2017 and has often had trouble maintaining his level in his next match after a high-quality tussle like the one he won over Dan Evans in the first round. He also doesn’t have a great record at Indian Wells – he might have reached the final in 207, but that was something of an outlier as well as the result of a soft draw (Pablo Carreno Busta in the semifinals?).

Fucsovics has massively improved over the past 12 months and has quietly been playing some good tennis in 2019, making the Sofia Open final and the quarterfinals of Rotterdam and Dubai. With the wind in Indian Wells making timing the ball tricky for Wawrinka, Fucsovics could make life very hard for the Swiss.
