Stan Wawrinka (3) vs. Kei Nishikori (5)

The three-time ATP World Tour Finals semi-finalist – Stan Wawrinka – is looking for another successful journey at the O2 Arena. Despite his recent triumph at the US Open, it hasn’t been easy for Stan to present his best tennis since then. Known for his outstanding 72.41% winning record on Grand Slam events, Wawrinka loves to compete on the big stages. Even though we expect Stan to raise his level after a disappointing performance in the BNP Paribas Masters, it’s unlikely to see Wawrinka at his best on his debut.

For the third consecutive year, Kei Nishikori secured a place in the ATP World Tour Finals. Famous for his remarkable footwork and ball striking skills, the Indoor Hard Court conditions clearly suit Nishikori’s game style with a terrific 70 – 29 career record on this surface. Looking now to Kei’s previous appearances in London, the highlight goes to his 2014 campaign with the Japanese losing only in the semifinals against Novak Djokovic in three sets.

These two players know each other well with six previous meetings in the past. Despite Stan’s 4 – 2 lead on the h2h, each player won one of the two matches between them this year. Nishikori emerged victorious in Toronto while Wawrinka revenged that loss one month later at the US Open.

As we mentioned before, the Indoor Hard Court conditions benefit Nishikori’s game style. The Japanese is never an easy match-up on this surface due to his ability to hit the ball extremely early. With Wawrinka struggling to perform at a consistent level in recent weeks, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of Nishikori’s betting odds to win this contest.

Andy Murray (1) vs. Marin Cilic (7)

After reaching the world no.1 spot for the first time in his career, Andy Murray is looking to end this perfect season with the ATP World Tour Finals title. Even though this event takes place on British soil, Murray holds a poor 8 – 10 record since the tournament moved to London in 2009. Andy is the undeniable favorite to win the John McEnroe Group yet, things won’t be easy for the home player.

Marin Cilic returns to the ATP World Tour Finals after a one-year absence. After losing all his three round robin matches in 2014 one thing is certain, there’s only room for improvement for the Croatian. Cilic couldn’t ask for a better preparation to this event. After winning the Swiss Indoors Basel title the 2014 US Open champion reached the BNP Paribas Masters semi-finals after an extraordinary triumph in the previous round against Novak Djokovic.

This will be the 16th career meeting between these two players with Murray leading on the h2h by 12 – 3.

Looking now to their previous encounters, Cilic won two of the last four matches between them. Besides this, the Croatian also stole a set from Andy earlier this year in the ATP Queens Club on grass. Due to Marin’s recent form and successful results against Andy in recent years, we can only expect a very close match between these two. With this in mind, our recommendation is for you to add the Over to your betting picks as the highest value play for this match.
