Stan Wawrinka may have beaten Andrey Rublev in a battle of rock-paper-scissors, but the reigning Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters champion won the war after a hilarious start to their Mutua Madrid Open clash.
With the golden-voiced Mohamed Lahyani serving as umpire and emcee, Wawrinka was asked to choose between two sides of a virtual coin: Madrid or Mutua.
Wawrinka calls Madrid, but the jumbotron on Court Manolo Sanatana pulls lands on an unexpected third option: ATP.
“You said Madrid or Mutua, so we have to do it again,” says Wawrinka.
Rublev correctly counters that if the two sides were actually Madrid and ATP, Wawrinka still lost the toss.
