Swiss Stan Wawrinka criticized reporters for questions about why he can’t stay at the same level after the injury.
“I get the feeling that I am having a bad season. Because of this, I don’t feel like talking to reporters. After all, I am on the 15th place in the champion race and still have chances to get to the Final tournament. And you ask about the previous level?
In recent years, only the Big Three have managed to win “Slams”. Do not forget about it.
Plus, I’m coming back after a serious injury. A month after the US Open, I had problems, but I already reached the final in Antwerp. I am one of the few who managed to beat Djokovic, even though he had to withdraw.
Maybe you should pay attention to the preliminary stages. After such an injury, time is needed. So this season can be considered very successful. Only the strongest beat me. Yes, I didn’t win the Slam trophy, but who did it? Only Djokovic and Nadal.
Would I like to finish the season in the Top 10? Yes. And to win the Grand Slam tournament? Yes. But you need to look at the world realistically. It will not work just to snap your fingers and return to the previous level.
In my opinion, spoiled journalists in Switzerland. In a few years, there will be much fewer Swiss men, especially men. Then you will understand that the 15th racket of the world is a good result, “Tages Anzeiger quotes Wawrinka.
