World No.1 Novak Djokovic is the heavy favorite to beat Stanislas Wawrinka this Sunday, as the pair do battle upon the Philippe Chatrier Court to be named French Open champion, 2015.
But while Djokovic is this season’s form player, winning the Australian Open in January and seeing off World No.3 Andy Murray and nine-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal en route to the final, just how fresh will he be come Sunday afternoon? The Serb had to complete a set-and-a-half of Grand Slam tennis against Murray on Saturday afternoon, while “Stanimal” has had his feet up since sweeping aside Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in four sets in the earlier match on Friday.
We’d say that, against a player with as intense a work ethic as Wawrinka, those extra hours on court could be decisive. The bookies, however, disagree: Djoker is a 1/6 shot to lift his ninth Grand Slam and first French Open.
