The stat that best explains Stan Wawrinka: He is 2-17 against No. 1 ranked players. 2-0 in Grand Slam finals. Amazing.

Stan ~ Ferru
Mahut ~ Tsonga ~ Monfils ~ Almagro ~ Brown ~ (Marc) Lopez ~ Marrero ~ McGee ~ Ymer ~ Tiafoe ~ Chung
Stosur ~ Robson ~ Radwanska ~ Serena ~ Venus ~ Li Na ~ Dellacqua ~ Townsend ~ Bartoli

You forgot to mention that he won the Junior's RG title as well.

It's incredible. He just seems to love being the underdog and proving everyone wrong. The fact he came out against Nadal at the AO and Djoker today with so much belief despite his record against them is just fucking amazing. I'm upset for Novak but you can't not admire the mental strength it took for Stan to do this. He steps up

TSONGA

DJOKOVIC

FEDERER
DEL PO-DIMITROV-MURRAY-WAWRINKA-GASQUET-JANOWICZ-BERDYCH

OBJECTIVE AND UNBIASED NADAL FAN
NADAL= Excuses, bending the rules, fluke 2010, weak clay field, classless celebrations, lucky draws, first player to lose 3 consecutive GS finals to the same man, 3 consecutive losses to players ranked outside 100 at Wimbledon including injured Darcis, only beats injured or UE strewn Djoko or Fed, embarrassed by Stronga. VAMOS!

Re: 7 Astonishing facts about Wawrinka's win today.

if you start counting from AO 14, he has great record against Fed, Rafa and Nole. Got. Win of all of them.
