"Królewski mord w Monaco"

To jeden z tytułów szwajcarskiej prasy po tym, jak Stanislas Wawrinka wyeliminował z turnieju ATP w Monte Carlo byłego lidera światowego rankingu, swojego rodaka i deblowego partnera, który na igrzyskach w Pekinie sięgnął po złoty medal - Rogera Federera.
Wawrinka był w czasie całego meczu zdecydowanie lepszym zawodnikiem i w pełni zasłużył na zwycięstwo. Szwajcarska prasa była zaskoczona takim wynikiem, ale też uradowana, bo będzie o czym pisać.

"Gwieździsta godzina Wawrinki", "Mistrz olimpijski pokonał mistrza olimpijskiego", "Piękna premiera Wawrinki", "Federer dał zły sygnał", "Pierwsze zwycięstwo Wawrinki nad Federerem", "Wawrinka zaskoczył Federera", "Wawrinka pokonał Federera dziewięć lat po wyczynie Marca Rosseta" - tak szwajcarska prasa zareagowała na niespodziewany triumf "Stana".

Mógłby Staszek ogolić facjatę przynajmniej na własny ślub. :D

Nie jestem jakimś włosofobem ale według mnie to niechlujne co najmniej.

The Last Time... With Stan Wawrinka

Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka reveals to DEUCE the last time...

I got out my (2008 Beijing doubles) Olympic gold medal to look at it?
Late last year when I was rearranging the office in my apartment I saw it. I don't look at it so much these days, maybe only when friends come around and they ask to see it. Obviously soon after I won the gold medal I looked at it a lot more.

I queued up to buy concert tickets?
It wasn't a concert, as such, but for a comedy show in Geneva last year.

I missed a flight?
Never... I've never missed a flight in my entire life, but I hope I haven't jinxed myself now! Maybe it's being Swiss, but I'm always on time for flights!

I flew economy class?
I fly economy inside Europe all the time – the flights are so short it doesn't make too much difference if you're in economy or business. But for long haul flights I fly business – I don't think I've ever flown to Australia in economy!

"I've never missed a flight in my entire life, but I hope I haven't jinxed myself now!"

I cooked for myself or others?
Very recently, just before I went on this current trip (Middle East/India/Australia). I love to cook when I'm at home – my wife and I share the cooking duties and we have a number of cookbooks that we try out new things from. I really enjoy cooking.

I met a childhood idol?
I don't have a lot of idols really, but the last person I met that I admire and respect was (footballer) Thierry Henry. It was in Rome last year and he came to see Roger (Federer), since they're both associated with Gillette. Roger and I were practising and he came to watch that, then we both had a chat with him in the player lounge, which was great.

I shared a hotel room with another player?
I would imagine it would've been in juniors, maybe under 16s.

I had to pay to hire a tennis court?
Very recently, when I was training in Switzerland in December I paid for my court all the time. No special privileges!

I dressed formally for a dinner?
One week ago in Abu Dhabi for an exhibition event I was playing; there was a cocktail party where all the players got dressed up.

I slipped on my diet?
Oh, for sure during Christmas I had a little bit too much to eat and drank a little too much wine, but I guess everyone does that too!

I forgot a family member or close friend's birthday?
Last year I forgot the birthday of a very good friend, but I remembered the next day and got in touch with him, so it wasn't too bad – it wasn't like I remembered weeks later, thankfully!

Being recognised helped me?
I can't think of anything specific but for sure in Switzerland, since I got to the Top 10 and won the gold medal in Beijing, I get recognised more. It maybe helps with getting a nice table at a restaurant when it's busy.

Peter Lundgren trenerem Stanislasa Wawrinki.

Cytuj:
Swedish coach Peter Lundgren, the star has a new mission:

Help Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka back to top 10.

- I'm terribly motivated, "says 45-year-old to Sportbladet.

Peter Lundgren - who among other things, has coached world ones Roger Federer, Marat Safin and Marcelo Rios - was contacted by Stanislas Wawrinka for a couple weeks ago and did not require further consideration before he accepted the job training.

- When I asked what he needed help, he replied that he would return to the top 10. It is such a thing you want to hear as a coach. He is justified and when it becomes terribly fun to work, "says Peter Lundgren.

Has collapsed

Stanislas Wawrinka was världsnia 2008, but has now fallen to 26th-place ranking. The negative trend was 25-year-old coach to change for the first time in his career. Since the age of eight, he has been trained by Dimitri Zavalioff.

The contract with Peter Lundgren case, to begin with, years out.

- He needs to hear a new voice and new ideas. I'll try to get "Stan" to become more aggressive in his game, "said Lundgren.

Tomorrow he goes to Lausanne to launch cooperation with Wawrinka, who has two ATP titles and an Olympic gold in doubles on the merit list. The team also includes fitness coach Pierre Paganini, Lundgren has worked with over the years with Roger Federer.

- This will be fun. It feels like I'm coming back to the roots, "said Peter Lundgren, who was employed by the Swiss tennis association before he was Roger Federer's personal trainer.

"Do not fight"

Lundgren worked previously with Grigor Dimitrov, who was called "the new Federer" but has not lived up to expectations.

- He fought not at the matches and I was not very motivated at the end. I wanted to see more hunger. "Stan" to return to the top 10 and there are things I should do. I will do everything for him to do that, "said Peter Lundgren.

US Open, postać 7. dnia: Stanislas Wawrinka

Wybór postaci dnia siódmego US Open był oczywisty. To druga rakieta Szwajcarii Stanislas Wawrinka (ATP 27), który wyrzucił za burtę jednego z faworytów do końcowego triumfu, a swojego dobrego przyjaciela (obaj są wielkimi miłośnikami gokartów) Andy'ego Murray'a (ATP 4).
Ten rok układa się Wawrince wspaniale. Na rozpoczęcie sezonu w Chennai osiągnął siódmy w karierze finał w ATP World Tour. 12 lutego na świat przyszła jego córka Alexia. A na początku kwietnia w Casablance zdobył drugi w karierze tytuł (pierwszy triumf święcił w sierpniu 2006 roku w Umag).

Po wyeliminowaniu nadziei brytyjskiego tenisa na triumf w Wielkim Szlemie Szwajcar jest na ustach całego tenisowego świata. John McEnroe swego czasu powiedział, że Wawrinka posiada jeden z najpotężniejszych bekhendów, jaki kiedykolwiek widział i uważa go za "najlepszy jednoręczny bekhend w dzisiejszym tenisie
."

Największym sukcesem Wawrinki pozostaje złoty medal olimpijski wywalczony w 2008 roku w Pekinie w grze
podwójnej w parze z Rogerem Federerem. Jeśli chodzi o singiel to jeden z ośmiu finałów osiągnął w imprezie rangi Masters 1000. Stało się to przed dwoma laty w Rzymie, gdzie
w meczu o tytuł przegrał z Novakiem Đokoviciem. Wtedy też zadebiutował w czołowej 10 rankingu
ATP.

Wawrinka juniorską karierę rozpoczął w wieku 14 lat i w 2003 roku wygrał Roland Garros. Jako zawodowiec zadebiutował w 2002 roku mając 17 lat
. Pokonując Murray'a po raz szósty, a po raz trzeci w US Open osiągnął 1/8 finału Wielkiego Szlema. Najwyżej w rankingu ATP plasował się na dziewiątym miejscu (czerwiec 2008).

US Open 2010 - Wawrinka po raz 1 w ćwierćfinale Wielkiego Szlema

25-letni Szwajcar przegrał, ale dzięki takiemu obrotowi sprawy będzie mógł wreszcie wrócić do rodziny, która mocno za nim tęskni. Poniżej, wywiad w niemieckim blick z żoną Stana, która opowiada o pustce, jaką odczuwają (żona i malutka córeczka), gdy Stan zarabia na życie, grając na kortach całego świata. Wawrinka obecnie przebywa poza domem już od 6 tygodni.

The Last Word: ATP No. 21, Stanislas Wawrinka

Obrazek
With Peter Lundgren in his corner,
Wawrinka seeks to play a more aggressive game.


Best of 2010
Andy Murray has a history of losses to offensive-minded hard-hitters at the Slams, and his latest shortcoming came against Wawrinka at the U.S. Open. Wait, Wawrinka? Yup. The Swiss came out of his shell and came out firing in a four-set win over the favored Scot, and would go on to reach the quarters.

Worst of 2010
There wasn’t much to fault Wawrinka for on tour. But in a Davis Cup World Group Play-off, Wawrinka faltered in Kazakhstan, losing his singles rubber to Mikhail Kukushkin (whom Wawrinka trounced at the U.S. Open weeks earlier) and his doubles match with Yves Allegro. The 5-0 whitewash banished Switzerland outside the World Group for 2011.

Year in Review
He’ll never make us forget about his more celebrated countryman, but Wawrinka has won fans of his own the last few years. He’s a threat on both fast and slow surfaces, and his mid-season hire of Peter Lundgren gives further reason for optimism. “When I asked what he wanted help with,” said Lundgren, “He said he wants to return to the Top 10. It's what you want to hear as a coach. I'm going to try to get Stan to become more aggressive.” At the U.S. Open, we saw the results. A full off-season with Lundgren, who has helped guide Marcelo Rios, Roger Federer and Marat Safin in the past, should bear more fruit.

See for Yourself

Wawrinka’s no-look backhand was SportsCenter-worthy, but his entire body of work against Murray was even impressive:



The Last Word

Of the players in the year-end Top 25, Wawrinka is one I feel quite confident in improving his ranking next season. He had a brief spell in the Top 10 in 2008, and while repeating that may be a tough ask, he should only benefit from the tutelage of Lundgren and his semi-breakthrough at Flushing Meadows.

Z powyższego (ponoć) wynika, że Stan i jego małżonka zdecydowali się na separację i to po nieco ponad rocznym związku (ślub odbył się 15.12.2009). Całkiem niedawno (w lutym 2010) urodziła im się córka. Fatalny news. :/

Bad Little Swiss Brother

Obrazek

Stan Wawrinka has . . . swagger? We knew about the heavy snap backhand, and we’d heard more than enough of that incomprehensible wail of celebration that he emits when something good happens. But tonight the already bad little Swiss brother went one step further and got in Andy Roddick’s face. And it worked.

Not that Wawrinka really needed to intimidate anyone. We came into this tournament talking about the stellar form of good brother Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, and they’re still doing fine. But the guy who’s playing the stellar tennis now, who’s hitting the cover off the ball, is the No. 19 seed. Wawrinka backed up his convincing straight-setter over Gael Monfils with an even more impressive performance against Roddick.

With Roddick serving at 3-4 in the first set and both players at net, Wawrinka hit a reflex volley winner. He stood and did his wail in Roddick’s direction; Roddick went, roughly, pffft. It appeared that it had lit a spark, because Roddick came back and hit his hardest forehand of the match for a winner to save a break point. But really it had only sparked Stan. He hung in and eventually broke with a perfect down the line backhand pass. The air seemed to go out of Roddick.

Afterward, Andy said he couldn’t get much penetration with his shots because of the slow courts and conditions. He couldn’t push Wawrinka. But of course Wawrinka had no trouble pushing him. By the middle of the second set, after 16 games, Wawrinka had hit 11 winners on his backhand side; Roddick had three on both sides combined.

Wawrinka is moving better and serving bigger. He finished more than double Roddick’s ace count. The times when Roddick did come forward, the Swiss had all kinds of answers at his disposal. He sent a backhand down the line with so much pace that it landed four feet from the sideline, yet Roddick was still nowhere near it. Twice Wawrinka scrambled from the baseline to the net and popped a perfect lob straight up and over Roddick’s head. After one of them he raised his hand in the air with his index finger high. Roddick was no longer going pfft. The bad little brother had his respect.

I was most impressed with the composure Wawrinka showed after he broke early in the third. This was an upset, so you had to think he would get tight; Roddick must have been counting on it to a degree. But even while he had to fend off a couple of break points, the end never seemed in doubt. Wawrinka controlled the set the way the best players do, the big boys whom he suddenly appears ready to join. To become one of them, you have to be able to close. Stan closed tonight.

Roddick has been one of the sport’s best closers for many years. Where does he stand now? This makes five straight upset losses at the majors in the last year. I watched some of this match on Australia’s Channel 7, with Roddick’s future Davis Cup captain Jim Courier in the booth. Courier had an interesting thought. He believed that if there was a forehand speed gun on the court, Roddick, who likes to check his serve speed, would see his low number and subsequently start to flatten out and rip his forehand more. Courier thinks that Roddick “believes he’s being aggressive when he’s really being conservative,” and that a forehand gun would awaken him to that.

Whether that specific scenario is true, Courier’s main point is that Roddick could, if he wanted to, hit his forehand bigger. It’s not a matter of ability or lack of ability, it’s a matter of mindset. We’ll see how these two guys work together beginning next month.

Next, Wawrinka gets Federer in the quarters. His Swiss elder and Olympic doubles partner has won their last four meetings; the most recent was a three-setter on an indoor court in Stockholm in October. Wawrinka has beaten him just once, on clay, two years ago. But by all appearances this is a new Stan. He has Federer’s old coach, Peter Lundgren, who once coached Marat Safin to a win over Federer at this tournament. If anything, Wawrinka has played the better tennis of the two so far in Melbourne. One factor could be timing, whether the match is played at night or during the day. So far Wawrinka’s heavy shots have been penetrating better in the slower night conditions than Federer’s. Chances are it will be under the lights.

The big battle for Wawrinka will be mental, of course. He has spent his career smiling politely when reporters and fans and maybe even his own mother have asked him questions about Federer. You can see him fighting to keep that smile on his face in press conferences; the Swiss press even smiles in commiseration with him when one more dopey foreign journalist brings up the RF word. Courier himself asked Wawrinka after the match tonight if Federer had "told" him how to return serve against Roddick. Wawrinka just smiled that same polite smile and ignored the question.

Will he be able to hit with the same abandon and accuracy? If he does, he can win. Will he swagger against Federer? Will he wail in his face? That could be dangerous. Federer, fellow Swiss, employs an amorphous bellow of his own at times—though he usually goes with the more civilized, Americanized "come on!" these days. Maybe Stan can take him back to his roots. I want to hear them yell back and forth at each other. No, wait, I don’t want to hear that at all. But I do want to see them play.

The Sizzling Swiss

One thing that's become abundantly clear over the past few years is that Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are tied together at the ankles with a very short rope. Everything either man does seems to have an impact on the other, if not in what we might call the real world, then inside that enormous bubble of their rivalry, where matters are not entirely in their own hands.

I mean that no matter how Roger or Rafa might feel about things - and I believe they'd just as soon both go about their business as if the other didn't exist, until such time as a showdown is mandated by the draw - other agents, voices, influences and compelling, aborning narratives conspire to link their names and destinies.

If Federer beats Tommy Robredo, it isn't long before Robredo is discarded, as if he were a mere prop, and the emerginig theme is how the victory will influence a potenial Rafa vs Roger confrontation. If Nadal crushes Bernard Tomic, ways are found to interpret the triumph as good or bad news for Federer, as if the glaring reality that it is very bad news for Tomic is a mere incidental.

Thus, the pendulum of the rivalry during this tournament has slowly swung back in Rafa's favor. Federer came in hot, Nadal's chances looked a little less certain. Would there be a Rafa Slam, like there had been Martina Slams and Serena Slams? Not if Federer had any say in it, and unease percolated freely in the Nadal camp once he lost in Doha and thereby had to postpone an appointment with Roger. But Gilles Simon and even Robredo, to whom Federer lost a set in the fourth round, have moved the pendulum back the other way; In matches with those men, Federer showed signs of the inconsistency that plagued him at times through the first nine months of 2010.

Rafa helped himself the other day, giving the pendulum a good shove with his comprehensive beatdown of Marin Cilic, who had won their only previous match under comparable, open-air, hard-court conditions in 2009 in Beijing. Inside the bubble, the headlines said: "Nadal Beats Tall Croatian, Now Playing Better Than Federer." No sense complaining about all this; it's part and parcel of rivalry. One reason neither of these guys needs to look over his shoulder is because two million designated back-watchers are doing it for each of them

Tonight, Federer gets his own Cilic, which is another way of saying that he has a chance to shape the narrative inside the bubble in a way that will improve his status. It's not that Stanislas Wawrinka, Federer's quarterfinal opponent, plays very much like Cilic. It's more that he represents a similar type of player, and is presently making a bid to join the group that has come to terms with the fact that it's going to take tennis played at that outer edge where power and consistency meet to take Federer down. The challenge for Federer is that Wawrinka, whom expert witness John McEnroe has said has the best backhand in all of men's tennis, has been making progress in that bid to join the Soderlings and Berdychs of this world. Just look at his photo on the tournament's official website and you'll know what I mean when I say the man has intentions. It's less head shot than mug shot.

Wawrinka is well-seasoned for this tussle. He's 25, and apparently ticked off that he's dilly-dallied and failed to make the most of his talent, which has been a realization of near-viral proportions in the ATP ranks these days. Seeded just 19, Wawrinka has had a pretty tough draw in terms of the general quality of the opposition, if not necessarily the Xs and Os of each matchup.

Wawrinka won his only previous main tour match (but in a tough three-setter) with his first-round opponent, Teymuraz Gabashvili. Next, he met and easily handled fast-rising prodigy, Grigor Dimitrov (it was their first meeting), after which he performed a clinical deconstruction of Gael Monfils - a guy who had beaten him twice (on hard courts) since the Manislas won their first battle way back in 2007. In the fourth round, Wawrinka swamped Andy Roddick, the no. 8 seed, to improve his record against Roddick to 3-1. Wawrinka hasn't lost a set yet, although that's likely to change. Still, the only player who's seeded lower than Wawrinka in the men's quarters is unseeded but electric Alexandr Dolgopolov. Wawrinka is seeded 12 places lower than the next lowest man, David Ferrer.

Against Roddick, Wawrinka's first serve percentage was an unimpressive 49, but he rained down 24 aces (a pretty good indicator of how deceptive statistics can be). Also against Roddick, Wawrinka powdered 67 winners in 29 (total) games, for a scary average of 2.9 winners per game. Federer hasn't come close to matching Wawrinka's single-match winners count, and hit more than 37 only in the two matches in which he lost at least one set. Federer has made 40 more unforced errors in the tournament, with 147. Overall Wawrinka is a net +82 in the winner to unforced error ration, while Federer is +27.

I cite those figures because they suggest that Wawrinka goes in with an edge if it's going to be a shoot-out, although it's true that Federer has had to play three more sets than his next opponent, which adds to both his winner and unforced error counts. That's why averages and ratios are the best way to look at certain quantifiable factors.

Barring a drop-off in Wawrinka's form, Federer is going to have to be mighty sharp for this one. If he goes toe to toe with Wawrinka from the baseline, he could be in for a long and perhaps very rough night. Federer leads the rivalry, 6-1, and it's significant that Wawrinka's lone win was on clay - the surface that, up to a point, aids players who aren't nimble because it allows them more time to draw a bead on the ball. This will be a great opportunity for Federer to make the most of his excellent mobility and the new aggressive elements in his game. If he can keep Wawrinka moving and under pressure he can neutralize some of those big groundstrokes. It isn't so much a matter of ending rallies as it is keeping Wawrinka from getting his feet planted during them.

Wawrinka will continue his interrupted quest for validation (he hit a career-high no. 9 in the early summer of 2008 but leveled off and began dropping to his present position of 19) with one enormous disadvantage that has nothing to do with forehands or backhands, and that's his Swiss nationality. It's a small nation with, traditionally, a dearth of heroes in major spectator sports. Federer has become the nation's sporting icon, and it's safe to say that Wawrinka was awful lucky to have Roger for a doubles partner when the pair won the gold at the Olympic games of 2008 in Beijing. Like it or not, resist it or not, there are karma issues at play in these situations, which is why I suspect that the match will be close but Federer will pull it out - or the Manislas will blow it - in the end.

I'll bet that even Rafa watches this one, even if he needn't bother to analyze what it will mean to him. Plenty of others will be all too happy to fill that role.

Nie ma żadnych informacji, ale widok uśmiechniętej żony i córeczki chyba wskazuje na to, że te pogłoski o "złym" Stasiu były trochę naciągane. Jakie tam rzeczy wypisywano - że zostawił rodzinę, że woli tenis. Wydaje mi się, że faktycznie nie chciał podróżować z żoną i małą córeczką, ale chyba nie nastąpiło to na zasadzie: "już Was nie znam, cześć". To moje domysły oczywiście. ;)
