It was an eventful week at the Monte Carlo Masters, where Stanislas Wawrinka became just the second man outside the ATP’s Big Four to win one of the last 30 Masters 1000 events.
Wawrinka’s come-from-behind 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-2 win over Roger Federer in the final makes him 6-0 against top 10 players this year and moves him to No. 1 in the Race to the London, a ranking based solely on points earned this year. His first Masters title was his tour-leading third title of the season., which isn’t bad for a guy who hadn’t won anything bigger than an ATP 250 a year ago.
In short: Stan really is The Man.
