Stan Wawrinka has won his last match with every other member of the Top 10, including every member of the Big 4.

When was the last time that happened for someone outside of the Big 4? Has it ever happened during the Big 4 era?

I think after WTF 2013. Djokovic had similar record. I should check again.

Checked: He won against all of them except Andy. Their last match in 2013 was Wimbledon and he lost that.

In 2014 again he won against except Rafa. Their last match in 2014 was RG final.

Ok but until RG SF 2015, Novak had a last match win against all of the Top 10. A little hack yeah, but Novak has been winning so much it struck me that he should have held this at some point.

:D :D

Let me know! Although technically he can't have beaten every member of the Big 4, considering he's one of them. ;)

Let's extend to the other Top 20 members:

Dimitrov - Madrid 2015 Round of 16 (l.)
Tsonga - RG 2015 Semifinal
Simon - RG 2015 Round of 16
Lopez - Wimbledon 2014 Round of 16
Goffin - Chennai 2015 Semifinal
Monfils* - Australian Open 2011 Round of 32
Anderson - Paris 2014 Round of 16 (l.)
Isner* - Paris Masters 2011 Round of 64 (l.)
Gasquet - RG 2013 Round of 16
Robredo - USO 2014 Round of 16

*pre-2013

So he had wins against all of them in the recent meeting except for Anderson and Dimitrov (where he lost in 3 straight meetings against them. :eek:) during the Norman Era.

Regarding the abysmal stats with dimitrov and Anderson, I don't think stan was ever that much motivated to win. He tried playing well but there was no resolve to actually try and win like against djokovic where we have a wrestling match. At Madrid in 2013 he subdued dimitrov out of sheer will power. He wanted that win. But after the loss at AO 2015 he went into a lull. He has improved his forehand remarkably since the last AO and makes less mistakes off that wing lately. He takes pace off to let the ball land in and only inject pace st the right moment now. And the backhand down the line has been a revelation. He's now got even bettee control on that wing. I want a rematch with those two. Now he's brimming with confidence it'd be interesting to see how he approaches those encounters from now on.

All he had to do now is not get crushed by Dimitrov.

Hard to believe he hasn't played Murray for 1 and a half years and Isner for 3 and a half :eek:

It is good for tennis and bad at the same time . Stan is 30 year old. The best player is 28 year old. Can someone tell me where are the younger players at 23 or 24?! It is a joke! Since 2009 media asked Fed to retire when he was only 27 year old but now 30year Wawrinka winning GS' is not a problem.

Given Wawrinka's inconsistency, this is certainly a surprising stat, and a cool one at that.

He's been mugging out to mugs but really turning up when it really matters.
It's like he's more likely to win the WTF but less likely to vulture a 250 if he's the only Top 20 player there. :lol:

Remember last year, absolutely hopeless post-USO, before the WTF and then in WTF plays decent tennis and was just a point away from reaching the final.
