Green remains for Stan Wawrinka, the color of hope. Three Grand Slam titles he has worked hard – the Australian, French and US Open. Wimbledon would need it for the career Slam. But it is maximum custody, whether or not the Romand in the turf Mecca creates next year with a 35 or the following year with 36, of which he was removed in five of ten years far.
Twice he stood here in the quarter-finals. All the other times lost to Wawrinka in round 1 or 2. Since he is fully recovered from the complicated knee injury, he goes to every tournament with the intention to win it. But Wimbledon is the least expect it to. On the surface Stan couldn’t even win smaller tournaments ever.
Although he owns the plants for a good grass game and excelled three days ago, almost in order. But yesterday showed how unpredictable a 2.11 Meter big opponent on the fast pad can be. Like John Isner or Ivo Karlovic also Reilly Opelka turned out to be the Killer giant on the Grass. And Wawrinka ran him into the knife.
At the US Open, the opportunities for “Stan the Man”, who mixes the victory phalanx of the three Superstars Djokovic, Nadal and Federer three times already gorgeous up are better. He has found his best Tennis again, rallying the right people around and to trust confidently, to the end of the year the Best of the ATP Finals. In New York, Stan the Man fire will be dangerous. And the Courts are by the way, blue is the color of trust.
