STAN WAWRINKA v RAFA NADAL BETTING PREVIEWStan Wawrinka enters this final on the back of a hard-fought semifinal victory over Andy Murray, 6-7(8), 6-3, 5-7, 7-6(3), 6-1. He has only dropped two sets so far, meaning he has knocked out all his previous opponents - Kovalik, Dolgopolov, Fognini, Monfils and Cilic - in straight sets. Should the Swiss win, he will become the oldest French Open winner since Andres Gimeno in 1972 (34) and will rise to a career-high world No. 2.

Rafa Nadal avenged his loss to Dominic Thiem in the quarterfinal round of the Italian Open than with a dominant victory in the French Open semi-final on Friday. The Spaniard cruised to a 6-3, 6-4, 6-0 victory, a demolition job almost as close as anyone has got to Nadal in Paris, with only Robin Haase (eight) taking more games than the seven which Thiem took. He has yet to drop a set on his charge to the last match of the tournament. Plus, no player has yet to even take the King of Clay to a tie-break this year.

Nadal, who has secured the 10th final of the tournament, has never lost a final in Paris. The Spaniard has been almost mistake-free during this year's French Open, combining superb defence with excellent work from the baseline. He has a significant edge in head-to-head wins against Wawrinka, 15-3. He has only met the Swiss once in Paris in the quarterfinal of the 2013 edition. Of course, Nadal emerged victorious in straight sets. The most recent match was in the 2016 Monte Carlo Masters, a match Nadal won in just 17 games.
