An Executive Summary of today's Daily Tennis News

Wawrinka Is In Shock Winning Australian Open

Australian Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka was still in a state of some disbelief two hours after beating the injured Rafael Nadal to win a first ever major title. And voicing his confusion he said: “I never expected to win a Grand Slam.  I never dreamed about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those top guys.”


“Old” Li Wins A New Championship

When Li Na won the French Open, approaching four years ago, she admitted she wasn’t expecting her victory and things went too fast so she couldn't savor her celebrations. After finally adding the Australian Open after two disappointments in finals, she does not intend to be so wasteful.



Wawrinka Is Ranked 3 On ATP

Stanislas Wawrinka could not believe his new position as third in the ATP rankings after beating wounded Rafael Nadal to surprise the tennis world with an Australian Open title. The 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 thriller, with Nadal nursing a back problem from the start and almost quitting the match in tears will go down as one of the major shocks of any season. Wawrinka, 28, had lost a dozen previous matches to the all-conquering Spaniard.

"To win a slam, to be No. 3, both for me are a big surprise," said Wawrinka, who now stands behind Nadal and Novak Djokovic in the ATP pecking order. "But I think (it's more important) more to win a slam. In the ranking you can be number three without winning a slam."


Doha Popular With Top Players But Hurting Fed Cup

The WTA Premier 5 tournament in Doha, which starts Feb. 10, the day after Fed Cup weekend, is already wreaking havoc on the competition. Few players want to fly to the tournament on Sunday night or Monday and not all have byes. Victoria Azarenka of Belarus has already opted out of Fed Cup, Serbia's Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic say they are doubtful for their tie with Canada in Montreal.


Sampras Won’t Wear Coaching Hat

Pete Sampras attended the Australian Open in celebration of the 20th anniversary of his 1994 title win and met up with a bunch of his former playing peers including Michael Chang, Jim Courier, Ivan Lendl, Boris Becker and Stefan Edberg, all of who are coaching in some capacity. But the 14-time Grand Slam champion has no intention of putting a coach's hat on himself.
