Good choice, could be good for Wawrinkas self-confidence.
It's nice to see that he finally isn't in the huge shadow of Federer all the time...

I posted it in GM because I think this is a surprising choice.

Wow ... very surprising choice. I understand that Federer wouldn't get the honor again, but I was not expecting Wawrinka.

Wawrinka will choke like always. I expect him to drop the flag by accident during the ceremony

Bendoverinka will bear Federer who bears the flag. Good old times...

You got my hopes up. I thought Federer retired or something.

lol

i'm actually sorry for Waw. He needs to carry Roger's bags...uh, flag, coz the ceremony takes forever and the flag is heavy, and Roger's back doesn't need this. That's all the reasons why it isn't the obvious choice but his help.

It still puts an emphasis on the sport, but spares Roger's back.

It's rather slightly humiliating for Stan imo
