Biography

Stan Wawrinka will always be known as that other great Swiss player—thanks, of course, to Roger Federer—but he set himself apart in 2014, when he won his first career Grand Slam at the Australian Open. The following year, when Novak Djokovic won three out of the four majors, Wawrinka beat him in the French Open final for the Roland Garros title. Understated and quiet, the “Stanimal” won a gold medal in doubles at the 2008 Summer Olympics—teaming with Federer—and helped Switzerland win its first Davis Cup title in 2014. Wawrinka has an incredibly powerful one-handed backhand and is especially difficult to beat on clay. He also possesses a booming serve and a strong forehand, and while he predominately plays from the baseline, he will occasionally serve and volley in an effort to keep his opponents off balance. In 2016, Wawrinka won his third career Grand Slam, upsetting Djokovic in the U.S. Open final. 

Wawrinka defeated Rafael Nadal in the 2014 Australian Open final for his first major title:
