According To Stan Wawrinka Her Recent Knee Pain Is Not To Worry About

Stanislas Wawrinka took retirement from professional tennis with knee problems developed during his third-round match at Marseille. He said that he was experiencing a typical reaction and he did not have a fresh injury.

The player is now 32-year-old was playing his fourth event after coming back from double knee surgery in the year 2017. He said “I hit a forehand volley at 3-3 and there was a slight contact with the knee. The 1st two days of practice had been good, but the matches are not like practice sessions because of the tension, the nerves and I felt that difference during the match.” Though frustrated because of unplanned retirement, Wawrinka was happy looking at his improvement during this week as well as his last two events at Rotterdam and Sofia.

Djovokic Hopeful Of Winning Rogers Cup

Novak Djokovic is hopeful of winning the Rogers Cup singles title for the 4th time in spite of the fact that he has got a very tough draw in the tournament this time around.

Djokovic did not have to take part in this year’s Rogers Cup actually, but, after the withdrawal of Rafael Nadal, he was invited to fill the Spaniard’s place and he accepted the invitation. He has obviously been given the top seed in the tournament.

Djokovic who has had a very exciting few weeks of late was in a jolly mood while addressing the press in Canada yesterday evening.

When asked about his thoughts on the draw that he’s got, the Serbian started cracking jokes. Firstly, he pretended as if he was very upset and then, he laughed and sarcastically said, “I just want to thank the people who have made the draw.”

Djokovic will have another joyous moment in his life in near future as his wife is due to give birth to a baby pretty soon. The world no. 1 looked very excited about that. In his words, “Winning Wimbledon, getting married and now, going to become a father, this period’s been special.”

Djokovic might be up against the Scot Andy Murray in the Round of 8 here in Toronto, while, in the final, he might be facing the second seeded Roger Federer in case he gets there.

When asked what he thinks about his chances in the tournament, Djokovic said, “It’s been quite a few months since I last featured on a hard court. So, I need to do some work before I go into the tournament. I will be practicing tomorrow, but, playing in a game is completely different from practicing. However, I am optimistic and I hope I do well.”

Cornet Wants To Follow Bartoli Steps

The French female tennis player Alize Cornet wants to do something similar to what her compatriot Marion Bartoli had done at the All England Club last year.

Bartoli had become the Wimbledon Champion in 2013 despite not being one of the favourites. But, the thing with her was that she had got a very easy draw.

Only in the final, Bartoli was up against a strong opponent. Until then, she had been playing against young, inexperienced players. So, she was a bit lucky on that front, but, that doesn’t seem to be going to happen with Cornet.

Cornet is supposed to have to face some tough players on her way to the final.

The confidence of Cornet is very high at the moment though. She has recently defeated the red hot favourite Serena Williams and has qualified for the pre quarter final round of a slam after a long time. The last time that she’d gone that far in a slam was back in 2009.

Talking to the reporters after beating Serena, Cornet said, “It’s like a dream. To get better of somebody like Serena and qualify for the pre quarters, I’m so glad.”

“I have been in the pre quarters of a Slam once before i.e. 5 years ago in Australia and that seems to be so long back.”

“It’s a great day for me, but, my job is not done and it’s very important for me to keep that in mind.”

“I have been hugely inspired by Marion and I am looking to do what she did here the previous year.”

Cornet has been eliminated from the Round of 32 of Grand Slams quite a few times in the past, but, this time around, she has made it through to the Round of 16. Let’s see if she can go all the way.


It would not be overly ambitious to say that Stanislas Wawrinka is the most in form player going around in the professional tennis arena at the moment. The way the 28 years old Swiss player is dominating his opponents is just incredible.

In the ongoing BNP Paribas Open, while the other top players had had problems in their first match, Wawrinka just took his opponent Andreas Seppi apart and qualified for the third round in style. He just lost a couple of games in the entire match which suggests what kind of mood he was in. The match didn’t last for even an hour. It was over in just about 45 minutes or so.

2014 is proving to be an absolutely dream year for Wawrinka. He has not put a foot wrong this year. He has hardly seemed to be out of nick in any of his matches and it’s that consistency which has helped him in getting to his career best ranking. He is the no. 3 player in the world at this point of time.

Talking to the reporters at the end of the match against Seppi, Wawrinka said, “I have been playing with aggression this season and that’s helping me.”

“As far as today’s match is concerned, everything went perfectly. I would like to keep it up.”

Wawrinka must know that he is not going to have things this easy in his next match as the player that he is going to face has also been in terrific form this season.

In the third round at Indian Wells, the Swiss no. 1 will face the South African player Kevin Anderson who has had a 13-4 record in 2014. He might be a bit low in the rankings, but, he can give Wawrinka some fight in this kind of form; that’s for sure.


Stanislas Wawrinka is looking forward to play in the Mubadala World Tennis Championship. It’s going to be his first tournament of the new season and he is pretty excited about it. He is going to face some great players in that tournament and he wants to make a mark by performing well against them.

The last season had been pretty good for Wawrinka. He had beaten quite a few players who were ranked higher than him in the world rankings. His biggest victory of the season came in the US Open where he got better of the reigning champion and British superstar Andy Murray in the quarter final round. He was looking good to pull off another upset in the semi final round there as he had got Novak Djokovic under pressure at one point of time, but, he eventually lost that match in 5 sets. However, that was the best that he had played in a Grand Slam.

Wawrinka finished the season as one of the top 10 players in the world. It was probably the best season of his career.

Talking to the reporters yesterday about Mubadala World Tennis Championship, Wawrinka said, “I am going to start my season in Abu Dhabi and I really want to have a good time there. I have been there in the past once and it was a fantastic experience for me. So, I am excited about visiting that place again. Hopefully, I achieve some success there.”

“There will be quite a few quality players participating in that tournament and it’s actually good for the fans. They will get to see tennis of high standard.”

Wawrinka’s first match in Abu Dhabi will be against David Ferrer of Spain on 26th of this month.


Stanislas Wawrinka has been defeated by Novak Djokovic in the semi final round of the US Open. Djokovic won the match in five sets by 2-6, 7-6 (4), 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.

This is the 5th time that Djokovic has reached the title round here at Flushing Meadows.

It was a marathon contest and it took Djokovic more than 4 hours to pull it off.

In the post match interview, the world no. 1 said, “It was simply an awesome match and I am glad to be a part of it. Stan was superb right through. He must be given the credit for battling so hard.”

“I was struggling for rhythm at the start. Stan was playing with a lot of aggression and I was finding it really difficult. Fortunately, I managed to lift my game during the vital moments.”

When asked about that third game of the last set which ended in 20 odd minutes, Djokovic said, “It was a vital game and I knew that the guy who would lose that game was going to be under pressure. Unfortunately, I lost it and I was really gutted.”

On the other hand Wawrinka who was featuring in the semi final match of a Grand Slam for the first time was perplexed after losing such a close match. The Swiss no. 2 said, “It’s gutting to end up on the wrong side in these sorts of matches. I was so close, but, unfortunately, couldn’t get the desired result.”

“Overall, it was a great campaign for me. I was consistent and managed to beat some very good players in this tournament.”

It was Djokovic’s 15th clash against Wawrinka and he defeated the Swiss player for the 13th time.

In the final match, Djokovic will take on the Spanish superstar Rafael Nadal.
