Daily Data Viz: Novak Djokovic vs. Stan Wawrinka men's final

Comparing No. 1 Novak Djokovic and No. 8 Stan Wawrinka ahead of the 2015 French Open men's title match.
Publish date:

No. 1 Novak Djokovic will take on No. 8 Stan Wawrinka for the 2015 French Open title on Sunday. Djokovic leads their head-to-head 17–3, but their last four Grand Slam matches have all gone five sets with Djokovic winning three of the four. This matchup is usually decided by how well Wawrinka plays as he has the bigger game and takes greater risks. The challenge for Djokovic is trying to ride out the Stan storm—he must keep Wawrinka from getting comfortable on the court and he will want to move him around, changing pace with angles and drop shots to make him run. Another key for Djokovic will be his strong serving, as breaking Wawrinka's serve has proven to be difficult—just ask Tsonga, who managed one break on 17 break points in their semifinal match. How will the No. 1 and No. 8 match up in the final?
