Andy Murray vs Stan Wawrinka: How to watch ATP Challenger Tour clash online for free

Stan Wawrinka and Andy Murray post match

Fans at the BNP Paribas Primrose Bordeaux – as well as those have a decent internet connection – are in for a treat on Wednesday as Grand Slam winners Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka will go head-to-head.

It’s not often that two of the sport’s modern day tennis icons meet on the ATP Challenger Tour, but that is exactly what will happen in the southwestern French port city.

Both Murray and Wawrinka signed up for the 175K tournament following their early exits from the ATP Masters 1000 Italian Open last week.

As the second seed, former world No 1 Murray had a bye into the second round while Wawrinka had to get past qualifier Ugo Blanchet in the first round. The Swiss great needed just 67 minutes to defeat the Frenchman 6-3, 6-1 on Tuesday and earn a tasty clash against the British No 3.

Murray is looking to win his second ATP Challenger Tour title in the space of a month as he won the Open Aix Provence at the beginning of May – his first 175K title in nearly 18 years.

Wawrinka’s last Challenger title – and seventh at that level – came in August 2020 at the Prague Open.

They have met in Grand Slams, ATP Tour matches, ATP Finals, in the Davis Cup and at the Olympics. In fact, they have met 22 times at ATP Tour-level with Murray leading the H2H 13-9.

Murray won their most recent encounter at the Cincinnati Masters last year as he defeated the Swiss 7-6 (7-3), 5-7, 7-5 in the round of 64 while the Scot also won the two finals that they played (Antwerp 2019 and Doha 2008).

Wawrinka, though, have won four of their five meetings on clay with the last coming in the first round at Roland Garros in 2020.
