Wawrinka Wins Mens Title – Australian Open 2014

A great win for Stan Wawrinka over Rafael Nadal. Rafa was injured and sweating profusely during the match and just couldn’t match Wawrinka’s power. Wawrinka’s first major title at 28 years of age.

Wawrinka took on a new coach 10 months ago and it’s paying off. Despite not serving well at all, his ground strokes were very fast and often outright winners. Not the best best match for him but enough to win. Love that guy’s one handed backhand, maybe even better than Federer’s.

Rafa dejected near the end of the match. Everyone loses once in a while.rafaloses
