Wawrinka draws Switzerland level

Switzerland and Australia are level at 1-1 after the opening day of their Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group first round tie on Friday.

Peter Luczak put Australia ahead with a 16 63 60 63 win over Michael Lammer before Stanislas Wawrinka, roared on by home fans waving flags, banging drums, blowing horns and clanging bells, hit back to defeat Chris Guccione 75 36 64 76.

World No. 51 Wawrinka, the highest-ranked player in the tie, battled for nearly three hours with fellow 20-year-old Guccione before snatching the fourth-set tiebreak 8-6.

Earlier, a small but boisterous contingent of Australian spectators cheered Luczak to victory.

Luczak, ranked 116th, recovered from a shaky first set on the indoor clay to overpower the 210th-ranked Lammer with fierce shots from the back of the court.

The 26-year-old Australian, who also beat Lammer in their last meeting, said it took him time to relax.

“I was a bit nervous to start,” Luczak told reporters.

Australia have defeated Switzerland in each of their three previous Davis Cup encounters but the two teams are missing their top players this time.

Federer is taking a break after his Australian Open title triumph while world number 11 Lleyton Hewitt is resting a sore ankle.

One confident Australian fan dressed in green and yellow held up a sign which read: “No Lleyton, No Worries”.

Play continues on Saturday with a doubles match between Australians Wayne Arthurs and Paul Hanley and Switzerland’s George Bastl and Yves Allegro.

an article about Stan!

found in GM.

Wawrinka beats Volandri to move into Umag final



Stanislas Wawrinka fought his way into the final of the Studena Croatia Open with a 7-5 2-6 6-4 win over number 8 seed Fillippo Volandri in a topsy-turvy match.

Wawrinka took the opening set with a break of the volandri serve at 5-6, nailing a glorious backhand down the line for a clean winner.

The Swiss number 2 made life much easier for his Spanish opponent in the second set, gifting two breaks of serve with some woeful errors as his timing lost its precision unlike a typical Swiss watch.

He re-discovered it in good time in the deciding set, racing to a 4-1 lead with his sublime backhand ripping winners to Volandri’s dismay.

When Wawrinka missed two opportunities to get a second break and go 5-1 ahead, the Spaniard’s resolve bolstered with a little help from his fans, and he broke the Swiss in the next game to bring it back on serve.

Wawrinka was not dettered however, and continued to go for his backhand whenever the opportunity presented itself. He broke again with his trademark backhand down the line to go 5-3 ahead.

A loose error-ridden game ensued from the Swiss as he attempted to serve out the match and he dropped his serve to love.

Volandri served to bring the score to parity but found himself match point down after netting an attempted backhand pass. Wawrinka took the match when Volandri under pressure netted his forehand.

“It was not easy, but I just kept fighting on every point and I won the match”, said Wawrinka.

The Swiss star admits that he has been working hard with his coach to prevent the mental lapses that have blighted his game in the past.

“I work a lot with my coach on every aspect of my game, especially on my mental game which is very important so that I fight on every point one hundred percent, not giving away cheap points.”

He looks forward to playing Carlos Moya rather than Novak Djokovic because; “Moya is a former world number 1 and it’s nice to play an ex-number 1” and “I’ve played Djokovic twice and lost both times.”

Wawrinka wins his first title in Umag


Stanislas Wawrinka won his first ATP title here in Umag when Novak Djokovic was forced to retire with respiratory problems leading 3-1 in the first set tiebreak.

It was a sad way to see a match end, particularly in a final with so much at stake. Djokovic who also won his first title in Amersfoort last week was aiming to be just the third man after Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal this year to win back to back titles, but it was not to be.

Wawrinka started nervously dropping his serve as the Serbian number 1 struck a forehand crosscourt winner on his fourth break point.

The Swiss number 2 broke back to level at 3-3 with a backhand winner down the line that has punctuated his performances all week.

Djokovic broke again with a forehand winner down the line, but Wawrinka stayed in touch with an immediate re-break when Djokovic netted an attempted drop shot.

When Wawrinka held for 5-4, Djokovic took a medical time-out at the changeover for a stomach muscle complaint. The treatment did the trick as he held onto his serve to love.

Having saved five set points when serving at 5-6, Djokovic reached 3-1 in the tiebreak when he collapsed after hitting a backhand winner, and had to be escorted to his chair. After an examination by the tournament doctor, a tearful Djokovic was forced to retire because of respiratory problems.

In addition to 175 ranking points which should elevate his ranking into the top 50 once again, Wawrinka was presented with a handsome cheque for $54,000 and the champion’s trophy.

After the presentation ceremony, there followed an impressive firework display worthy of a new year’s celebration.

Djokovic spoke of the medical time-out he took at 4-5:

"It was for my breathing problems; I had to give up in the tiebreak because of this problem, It's unfortunate that it finished this way even though I didn't want it to. It's the third match this year where it had finished like this with me giving up. Usually anyone that gets to the final fights to the end which is why I'm a bit disappointed, but on the other hand it was a wise decision to retire because I don't want to risk this season and the future of my career. It was more serious than it looked; I was feeling very dizzy for a couple of minutes. The doctor told me that I shouldn't play and I accepted his advice."

Djokovic admitted that he is not currently on medication for the respiratory complaint:

"I will speak to my doctor and ask him what should I do and what should I take, but the main thing to do right now is to rest. I've had two very difficult and exhausting weeks; two ATP finals in a row on this surface is a big success for me."

Wawrinka who received a message of congratulations from compatriot Roger Federer was delighted to have finally won his first title although feeling sorry for Djokovic's plight.

"I am very happy to win my first title, but I did not want to win it this way", he said.

All eyes on Wawrinka as French Open nears
swissinfo, Jonathan Hirsch


"Stan", Switzerland's other tennis player, will be courting success at the French Open starting Sunday (EQ Images)

First-rate results from the start of the year have projected Stanislas Wawrinka to the tenth men's world ranking in tennis.
It's a feat only ever achieved by three other Swiss: Jakob Hlasek, Marc Rosset and, of course, Roger Federer. On Sunday Wawrinka enters his first tournament as world number ten.

If Federer had not been fixed at the top of world tennis for the past four years, Wawrinka would have been the one making headlines.

"I hope that the Swiss are aware that this is something exceptional," commented the resident of French-speaking canton Vaud, who has been ranked in the top ten for just under a fortnight.

"Since Federer has won practically everything in recent years, it all appeared too easy."

After Spain, (Nadal, Ferrer) and the United States (Roddick, Blake), Switzerland (Federer, Wawrinka) is now the third country to boast two members in the top ten.

It is a real first on the men's circuit since the introduction of the ATP ranking 35 years ago.

Hingis and Schnyder
Spring of 2008 belonged to the 23 year old. And the French Open, which starts on Sunday, is looking good for "Stan" who could quite possibly enter the second round of the Grand Slam as number nine, after the forfeit of the American Andy Roddick.

Swiss men are hitting just as hard as women did in 2006, when Martina Hingis and Patty Schnyder both made it into the top ten.

Since the start of the year, Wawrinka has already done battle in two finals on the ATP circuit - in Doha in January and in the Masters series in Rome in mid-May, where only Novak Djokovic (world number three and best player on the planet in 2008) put an end to his rise.

In the run up, Wawrinka had taken on Marat Safin, Juan Carlos Ferrero and Andy Roddick, three former world number ones.

A childhood dream
"I still find it hard to believe. My childhood dream has come true," he admitted.

"When I open my eyes, I see that all those hours of training have finally paid off."

Ranked 36th in January and 24th at the start of May, Wawrinka has moved into fifth gear.

"I have become a much more complete player. At all levels, be they psychological, physical or technical," he explained.

He confirmed as much in his semi-final in Barcelona and his quarter final in the Masters series in Indian Wells, proving that he could win repeatedly against the best.

But Wawrinka is keeping his wits about him, conscious that everything could quickly fall apart. The memory of a serious knee injury in the spring of 2007 is still fresh.

He remained on the ball after a number of weeks before suffering mortifying defeats in August, later recovering his natural rhythm.

"I have really had to weather periods of doubt, but I would say today that it has made me stronger," he said.

Future goals
He says his next goals are to continue his rise, without setting too definite goals for the moment apart from doing well at Roland Garros.

"I feel under more pressure with this new status," he confided. Having said that, Roland Garros, on his preferred surface, is his favourite tournament.

The rise of Wawrinka should logically have repercussions for Swiss tennis, with the probable return of Federer in the Davis Cup, starting from the first tour in 2009.

The world number one has always said that he intends to make a serious return, to have a real chance of taking home the silver trophy. That day appears to have arrived.



STANLISLAS WAWRINKA
Born in Lausanne on March 23, 1985, Wawrinka is 1.83m tall and weighs 78kg.

He made his professional debut in 2003, did battle for the time in the Davis Cup in 2004 and took home his first tournament title in 2006.

After a knee injury in February 2007, he returned and reached two finals during tournaments in Stuttgart and Venice. Since the start of the 2008 he has continued making progress, winning two finals, and figures today among the ten best players in the world.

SWISS IN THE TOP TEN
Stanislas Wawrinka is the fourth Swiss in history to be projected into the top ten.

Jakob Hlasek (at the age of 23) was the first to enter on November 21, 1988 (ranked 8th). He remained for less than a year, until October 9, 1989, peaking at 7th for one week.

Marc Rosset of Geneva followed on July 9, 1995 (ranked 10th). The 24 year old only stayed in the top ten for three months, reaching 9th position on September 11, 1995 .

Roger Federer entered the top ten for the first time on May 20, 2002 at 8th place. He stayed ther for several weeks before exiting. He returned definitively to the top ten on October 14, 2002, where he has remained ever since.

Interesting, isn't it?

As for Stan's recent success, I am not the kind of fan that would need proof of his credentials.
