Stanislas Wawrinka proved to the tennis world once more that he is a name to reckon with. A late bloomer, this Swiss stalwart has been overshadowed by Federer for most of his career. Even now, with two Grand Slams in his kitty, the first question put forth to him in any interview will have Federer’s name it. But Wawrinka always takes them in his stride and answers them with humor and respect for the maestro.Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka

Bought to spotlight on winning the Olympic Gold Medal in doubles alongside Federer in 2008, he was introduced to the Indian fans as Swiss No.2 in Chennai Open’09. With his blistering backhand and a calm demeanor, he became a quick favorite amongst Indian fans. He became a regular on the Indian ATP calendar and has huge fan following.

A kid in India fondly called him “Powerinka” and one can’t help but agree with his reasoning; for Stan exudes nothing but power and one can only imagine how many racquet strings he has broken. Believed to have one best single-handed backhands, he‘ll have the crowds gushing over his backhand even if it becomes an unforced error.

His primary failing is inconsistency, which is understandable due to his offensive style of playing. Power is a double-edged sword. It makes him invincible on his better days and murders him on his worst ones. The key for Stan to succeed is to maintain a control over his exorbitant power. Though his first Grand Slam win was marred by Rafael Nadal’s injuries, he clearly stamped his name with authority when he won the Roland Garros’15 by conquering Djokovic, who was in the form of his life.

A private person with subdued on court celebrations, wry humor and a tattoo which says “Ever Tried Ever Failed No Matter Try Again Fail Again Fail Better” , he is proving that tennis has more to it than the Big Four and that age is just a number. Indian fans would like to believe that winning The Aircel Chennai Open is his lucky charm in Grand Slams. A thorough crowd favorite here even before his Grand Slam victories, fans are eagerly awaiting his return in the next edition.369949-b99003b4-858e-11e3-b939-7fcb48a5bb4a

    A lot of of what you point out is supprisingly precise and it makes me ponder why I had not looked at this in this light previously. This article really did switch the light on for me as far as this particular subject matter goes. Nonetheless at this time there is just one position I am not necessarily too cozy with so whilst I try to reconcile that with the actual central theme of your position, allow me see exactly what the rest of the visitors have to point out.Very well done.
