    Congrats Stan Wawrinka! So disappointed for Rafa but he fully deserved his first Grand Slam.

    The crowd was booing him when it became known that he was injured and then suddenly when he was playing well in the 4th set, they loved him again.

    You can never expect too much integrity from a tennis crowd

    Federer must be furious that Nadal's back didn't give out a couple of days ago.

    Nice to see another winner.

    Nadal still stuck on 13 grand slams.

    That's tennis crowds for you (apart from the French, who only bum Federer). Just hilariously short memories and relentlessly fickle.

    The awards ceremony should be really funny.

    Wawrinka serving for the title!!! That's a sentence I would've bet my life I wouldn't be writing!
    Yeah I know, I just find it funny of how fickle the crowds can be.

    Commentators bang on about professionalism of Wawrinka - not over celebrating which is nice to see. And credit to Nadal for being an excellent sportsman, great interchange at the end at the net. Great for the men's game. Would've been nice to see what happened if Nadal had been 100%

    Lol Nadal is one of the best, if not best fighters in tennis ever. Period. Best clay court player. No doubt. I just personally think he's ok. I will not be leaving as I have ever right to be here thank you.

    Fair enough, apologies. We get a lot of people who just turn up to hate players round here.

    Well it might have been a bit less one sided than against Nadal.

    Anyway Warwrinka was obviously in amazing form, lets not forget he beat Djovokic on his way.

    I know Stan was being respectful but that's hard to celebrate just like you've only won round one, dampens the emotion somewhat.

    There are loads more tournaments and GSs to play this year, we may get to see Rafa at 100% playing Stan later this year! I'm so happy that someone is finally able to challenge the big 4 more consistently! Del Potro should take note

    Federer knows his game inside and out and appears to be in his mind in a similar way to Nadal, i'd be very suprised.

    Agree with this for sure - Stan still has a horrible match up and mental issues against Federer.

    Wawrinka has just elevated himself since last year so he can beat anyone! To beat Djokovic, Berdych then Nadal that's fricking amazing! :O

    No worries. Bit of a shame in all seriousness because Stan was playing out of this world before Nadal went for MTO and if the match had continued it would've been so good to watch :rolleyes:
