It didn’t help that I was out of commission for so long with my injury. Stan Wawrinka is having a difficult time regaining his flow and winning a string of straight matches after a long hiatus from the tour.
Despite having survived two surgeries, the Swiss tennis star remains upbeat and grateful for the opportunity to play again.
Pablo Carreno Busta fought back from a set down to beat three-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal 5-7, 4-6 in the second round of the Swedish 250.
While Wawrinka had intended to play another red clay tournament in Gstaad the following week, he’s since backed out to focus on the cement tournaments in North America, promising to keep working hard to improve his performance.
“On his official Twitter account, former world number 3 Novak Djokovic said, “I am sad to say that I will have to withdraw from Gstaad.” “Always, but especially in Switzerland, I want to play my best in front of my supporters.”
I’ll only step onto the court if I’m confident in my ability to do so. Please accept my sincere apologies.”
Lausanne native and 37-year-old Lausanne resident continued.
“As much as I’m pleased with my development, I know that I’m not quite where I want to be.
Despite my injury, I’ll keep investing in my own recovery. The North American leg of my tour will come next.”
I’m putting my money where my mouth is in order to return to the level of play I was at before my accident. Hopefully we’ll see each other in Gstaad again next year! The rest of the season, I plan to keep working hard. Next up is a tour of the US. As of July 13, 2022, – Stanislas Wawrinka (@stanwawrinka)
