Wednesday Morning Man: Stan Wawrinka!
Stan Wawrinka will always have Paris.
Even though the Swiss superstar won the Australian Open last year, few were picking him to win the French Open this month in a field that also included Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal who had won a combined 41 grand slam singles titles between them as well as the last two Olympics.
But the player known as Stan the Man came through and won the title by beating second-ranked Federer in the quarterfinals and top-ranked Djokovic in the final.
Wawrinka is now ranked number four in the world and at the age of 30 is playing the best tennis of his career.
