After his comeback in Marbella in the spring, Stan Wawrinka has repeatedly emphasized that the process on the way back to the extended world elite has to be right. In Metz, the signs indicate that this idea is bearing fruit. Because after qualifying and a first-round win against Joao Sousa, the three-time major winner against Daniil Medvedev went one better, winning 6: 4, 6: 7 (7) and 6: 3. Wawrinka had a chance to end the match in the second set.
The Swiss now doesn't have a bad chance of reaching the semi-finals of the 250cc event either. Because on Friday Wawrinka meets Mikael Ymer from Sweden. A rather unsatisfactory season continues for Medvedev: The Russian was able to celebrate the only tournament victory in Los Cabos. Nick Kyrgios destroyed the desired title defense at the US Open.
