Stan Wawrinka spent most of his career in the shadow of his compatriot Roger Federer. A baseliner with a brilliant flat hit backhand, Wawrinka made his Grand Slam debut at the 2005 French Open, where he lost in the third round to eventual finalist Mariano Puerta. He established himself as a solid top twenty player, even edging towards the top 10 as time went on. At the 2013 US Open Wawrinka beat Andy Murray in straight sets in the quarters before losing in the semis to Novak Djokovic in five sets. At the 2014 Australian Open Wawrinka finally beat defending champion Novak Djokovic 9-7 in the fifth set. He then beat Tomas Berdych in the semis in four sets. In the final Wawrinka played brilliantly to win the first set from Nadal. Then Nadal suffered from an injury and Wawrinka went on to win in four sets to win his first Grand Slam title at the age of 28. At Wimbledon Wawrinka lost in four sets in the quarters to Federer and at the US Open lost a five set epic in the quarters to Kei Nishikori. Defending his title at the Australian, Wawrinka faced Djokovic once again, this time in the semis. It again went to five sets but Wawrinka lost. At the 2015 French Open Wawrinka was seeded 8 and not seemed to be a fading force, but he hit a rich vein of form, beating Federer easily in the quarters before a brilliant display of hitting in the final to beat Djokovic. Wawrinka lost in the US semis to Federer in straight sets. At the 2016 French Open Wawrinka lost to Murray in the semis. At the 2016 US Open Wawrinka again produced an inspired display of shotmaking against Novak Djokovic in the final to win his third Grand Slam title. At the 2017 Australian Open Wawrinka lost in the semis to Federer in five sets. At the French Open Wawrinka beat Murray in five sets in the semis before losing easliy to Nadal in the final.
