Stan Wawrinka confesses to ‘bad behaving’ during defeat to Rafael Nadal

Curated by

Stan Wawrinka confessed to “bad behaving” last night after giving into the frustration of his 6-3, 6-2 defeat to Rafael Nadal and mooching around the back of the court like a teenager who had been grounded. Bad behaving on the second set, going too fast . A promising first half-hour saw these two old rivals exchange breaks and wrestle for supremacy, but as soon as Nadal took the advantage by moving 5-3 up in the first set, Wawrinka lost his focus completely.

  • Part of the reason why Wawrinka lost his cool was surely down to the difficulty of hitting through his opponent.
  • A slow court allowed Nadal to scramble even the best shots back, and counter-attack when the opportunity was there.
  • Wawrinka played a superb angled volley that would have been a winner against most opponents, but Nadal raced to the ball and poked a perfectly calibrated lob over the stranded Swiss.
