Overview

World number three Stan Wawrinka continued his good form when he took on Serbia's Viktor Troicki in the quarter-final of the St Petersburg Open, winning 7-5, 6-2. This win also helped him maintain a perfect record against the Serbian player and extend his winning streak to nine matches, with his last defeat coming at the hands of Grigor Dimitrov at the Cincinnati Masters.

The current US Open champion is known to be inconsistent, but off late he has shown that if he puts his mind to it he can be a contender for the number one ranking in the near future. Wawrinka is the favourite going into this game and is expected to cruise past his opponent.

His opponent in the semi-final Roberto Bautista Agut has had a decent season so far, having reached three finals in 2016, winning in Auckland, Sofia while finishing runner up to Pablo Carreno Busta in Winston-Salem a few weeks ago.

The Spaniard has always reached the quarter-final stage at St Petersburg, in fact even going to the semi-final in 2015 and will be looking to maintain that record on Saturday. However, despite his impressive season it is very unlikely that he will go past the world number three on 24 September.
