Stan Wawrinka won the 2014 Australian Open and defeated Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal in the final. After that, he returned to the top of the semifinals in Melbourne twice. In 2015 and 2017, they lost to Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer, respectively.
In the previous edition, he played in the quarterfinals and lost to Alexander Zverev in three sets. Today, 18th in the world ranking, Stan (one of the circuit veterans) is preparing to start the 2021 season in the best possible way. This makes him 36 years old.
One of the most amazing disappointments in Rafael Nadal’s career was Roland Garros 2015, when Spanish champion lost to Novak Djokovic, surprisingly opening the door to the new champion, Swiss tennis player Stan Wawrinka. I left it open.
The strong tennis player defeated Roger Federer in the quarterfinals, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the semifinals and Novak Djokovic in the finals to win his second Grand Slam title in Paris. It was an almost “shocking” victory for the tennis world, and while the Serbs clearly started out as a favorite, they were naturally defeated by Wawrinka, the author of the great performance.
Rapha was forced to retire in 2016, but from Roland Garros 2017 he secured four consecutive titles by literally dominating the slums with clay. In an interview, Wawrinka talked about Rafael Nadal’s 13 titles at Roland Garros, and this is what our sport has seen so far, as the 2005 Parisian version of Rafael Nadal made a new face in history. Of this sport, he said he would continue to be one of the greatest results of all.
Rafa won 13 of his 16 trips to Paris, and last year’s 2020 edition was all without losing the set, despite difficult situations like this year. Defeated his rivals. Nadal suffered eight breaks in seven games, resulting in an incredible number of both serve and return.
Wawrinka about the most important victory of his career
The 35-year-old recently sat down in a chat with the French magazine Paris Match Suisse, and an interviewer raised the question to Swiss International.
“It’s impossible to get one out. My first title in Umag, Croatia in 2006 was very important,” Stan Wawrinka replied. Wawrinka is a three-time Grand Slam champion and these titles are arguably the most important of his career.
After winning his first major in 2014, his game turned out to be unbreakable. However, 35-year-old Wawrinka made other achievements that were more meaningful to him besides winning the Grand Slam. He frequently represents his country at the Olympics and the Davis Cup and has won the highest honors at both events.
“It was great to win the Davis Cup in Switzerland after playing for 12 years, especially because it was my first Olympics, like the Olympic gold medal with Roger Federer in Beijing,” Wawrinka added. It was. “Of course, as a more personal note, don’t forget to win my three Grand Slams,” he concludes.
