Wawrinka Is In Shock Winning Australian Open
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
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
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
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
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.
