Join us while we provide the best tennis pick for this Wednesday at ATP World Tour Finals. Wawrinka and Ferrer will be in action and they'll try to achieve their first victory at London.

Stan Wawrinka (4) vs David Ferrer (7)
David Ferrer is known for being a very solid player, not giving free points to his opponents and keeping a high intensity from the baseline. However, the Spaniard was far from consistent on his first match against Andy Murray, struggling with his serve. Ferrer ended the match with 8 double faults and was only able to place 49% of first serve. As we mentioned before, the courts are quite slow which leads to longer rallies that suit Ferrer’s solid game style.

We pointed Stan Wawrinka as a serious contender to reach the semifinals, along with Rafael Nadal, but the Suisse was far from brilliant on his debut.

Despite firing 10 aces, Wawrinka only gained 50% of points with his serve, facing 15 break points and dropping his serve 4 times. Stan struggled to perform at a consistent level, ending the match with 29 winners / 35 unforced errors and winning only 36.62% of baseline points against Nadal.

Ferrer leads h2h by 8 – 6 but was Wawrinka who won the last three meetings, dropping only one set, in 2013, at this ATP World Tour Finals.

This is a very interesting match-up between one of the best ball strikers in the tour and a terrific competitor. Stan will try to overplay Ferrer with his powerful groundstrokes but it’s always hard for him to overcome David’s baseline consistency.

Both were far from brilliant on their first match and is hard to see any of them taking this match in two easy sets. This should be a very close contest and is quite likely that a third set is required to find the winner.

Wawrinka might be able to emerge victorious at the end, but there is no real value on his tennis odds and for that reason we’ll add the Over to our tennis picks.

Tennis Pick: Over 23 (-103) at Pinnacle
