Stanislas Wawrinka was feeling slightly empty following his win

Stanislas Wawrinka was feeling slightly empty following his win at Roland Garros.

According to Wawrinka, so much of emotion was there on that particular day that he had almost gone into a state of depression once it all ended. A sense of loneliness had crept in.

In the words of Wawrinka, “After a big triumph, it gets slightly difficult to recharge yourself and that’s because you had gone through such a high degree of emotions. You feel mentally weary once you get back home. But, that’s the kind of challenge professional sport brings to you. You don’t have too much time to let it sink in. There is a new assignment at next step and you have to be up for it straightaway.”

“Players who get into this habit of clinching titles right from their teenage, the likes of Roger and Andy, they deal with it a little better as they have had a lot of it. But, that hasn’t been the case with me. I haven’t been a superstar. It was my 10th season on the tour when I had my first Slam title. It takes a bit of getting used to.”

“However, I would like to believe I am adapting. This time around, I have felt it more normal to be a Slam winner. The previous season, it was absolutely surreal. It just couldn’t sink in.” Read more »
