Stanislas Wawrinka Player Profile

Stan Wawrinka won his second career Grand Slam at the French Open and comes into Wimbledon as a serious threat to succeed again.

Wawrinka had threatened the established elite ahead of Roland Garros by upsetting Rafael Nadal on his favourite clay surface in Rome but few expected the Swiss maestro to storm to the pinnacle of the upcoming Slam.

The French Open was largely about Novak Djokovic's mission to win the only Slam eluding him yet Wawrinka put on a stunning display to defeat the world No 1 in the final.

It was his greatest triumph since a 2014 Australian Open, and this year's defence of that crown was only curtailed at the semi-final stage by Djokovic.

Entering Wimbledon with his ranking improved from ninth to fourth, the only downside for Wawrinka is that an all-white strip rules out the chequered pink shorts that have become his recent trademark!
