The thrills and spills of the French Open have passed us by, but the tennis season marches on. This tennis betting tip comes from ATP St Petersburg on Monday.

Britain’s Dan Evans will be looking to secure himself a big win in the opening round as he faces a former Grand Slam champion.

That is Stan Wawrinka, who is still a class act despite his advancing years.

Stan Wawrinka Preview – Stan the Man favourite to win

Former Grand Slam champion Stan Warwinka exited the recent French Open at the third round.

He couldn’t stay the distance over five sets against France’s Hugo Gaston.

There hasn’t been too much action therefore for the Swiss player since the season was restarted.

Prior to the French Open he showed up at the Italian Open and lost in the first round there.

So it has left him on a W2 L2 record since the season resumed.

But nonetheless, he is a quality player, reaching a previous high of world number 3.

Wawrinka is the 1/2 odds-on favourite for this opening round fixture at ATP St Petersburg for tennis betting* (odds taken 2014 GMT Sunday, 11th October)

Our betting prediction:
Wawrinka 2-1 Set Betting

(odds taken 2014 GMT Sunday, 11th October)


Warwinka and Evans have met three times before and all of those meetings have gone the way of the Swiss star.

They met twice last year actually at Indian Wells and then at Queen’s. But there have been close battles between them.

Wawrinka has been taken the distance in two of his three previous meetings with Dan Evans.

The 3 Sets tennis betting option in this one is at 5/4* (odds taken 2014 GMT Sunday, 11th October).


Dan Evans Preview – Can Evans raise his game?

The form of Dan Evans hasn’t been the greatest since the big action of the season picked up again.

He won his opening match at the US Open, but then it has been four straight defeats for him.

Granted he has gotten some tough draws along the way.

In Hamburg he was beaten in the first round by Stenfanos Tsitsipas, who just had that run to the semifinals of the French Open.

Then at the French Open, Evans bumped into Kei Nishikori in the opening round and was sent packing immediately.

But Evans gave a great account of himself in that one, taking Nishkoria to five sets and only then narrowly missing out.

As the British player is the underdog for this contest, a Stan Wawrinka 2-1 option in set betting is at 3/1 odds* (odds taken 2014 GMT Sunday, 11th October).

Dan Evans is currently ranked 34th in the world at the moment, but on his day he is able to really dig in there.

Especially so when he can get behind his strong service game. So we do expect him to be in this fixture.

It’s not an insurmountable challenge ahead of him, highlighted by the fact that he is at 6/4 in the match outright* (odds taken 2014 GMT Sunday, 11th October).

If he were to get the opening set on the board then this could turn into a very interesting fixture.


Stan Wawrinka vs Dan Evans Betting Advice

We have to go with Stan Wawrinka for the outright win in this one. That will be on the back of a couple of successes at the French Open.

He still has the craft and guile as seen at the US Open recently when he cruised past Andy Murray.

We accept his opponent to cause him some problems though, so we would entertain the option of a Wawrinka 2-1 option in set betting* (odds taken 2014 GMT Sunday, 11th October).


Key Facts – Stan Wawrinka vs Dan Evans Betting Tip

  • Stan Wawrinka is W3 L0 against Dan Evans
  • Stan Wawrinka has dropped at least a set in two of his three wins over Evans
  • Dan Evans has lost his last four matches


We just feel that Evans is lacking that edge to get over the line, and even against 35 year old Wawrinka, we see the Brit struggling to do that.

But we are going to go with a decent Dan Evans +2.5 Games option to see him stick fairly close to the Swiss player. That is an even money option

At the end of the day Evans is on a four match losing streak and that leaves him an unappealing option for the win* (odds taken 2014 GMT Sunday, 11th October)..
