MEET STAN WAWRINKA

‘Stanimal’ or ‘Stan the Man’ as he’s known to fans around the world – Wawrinka is a tennis superstar, having won three Grand Slam tournaments, an Olympic champion and a Davis Cup champion for Switzerland. He also carried the Swiss flag at the 2012 London Olympic Games. His Grand Slam wins are all the more impressive for coming on 3 different playing surfaces at the Australian Open, French Open and US Open – defeating the No 1 ranked player in the final on all 3 occasions. He is quite simply, a player for the big occasion and competitive on all surfaces. Stan first picked up a racket at the age of 8, turning pro at 17, he appeared at 50 straight Grand Slams before succumbing to injury before the 2017 US Open.This will be Stan’s third TB10 tournament, our defeated finalist last year (loss to Raonic 10-7) Stan will be hoping to go one better in 2020.

“I can’t wait to get out and play Tie Break Tens in Indian Wells again following the final last year – the short format really suits my style of play. It’s always an entertaining night playing with some of my great friends on the tour. Hopefully I’ll go one better this year and take home the title”

TIE BREAK STRENGTHS

POWER

A powerful offensive baseliner capable of playing well on all surfaces, especially on clay and hard courts make Stan a real threat at TB10 Indian Wells.  He is known for his fast serve which can reach speeds of 144mph, he can also serve and volley and has a great variety of shot.

MENTAL STRENGTH

Wawrinka thrives on the big stage, at one point winning 11 consecutive finals played.  He never lets pressure get to him and can turn a losing situation into victory. Don’t write him off, he’s a fighter in the mould of Lleyton Hewitt.

THE BACKHAND

Lauded by none other than John McEnroe as having the ‘best one-handed backhands in the game’ Wawrinka has one of the most powerful backhands ever seen on the men’s tour.
