Well done, Wawrinka!
Hats off to #Wawrinka for winning his first #GrandSlam title!
He started with a great aggressive strategy that put Nadal off his game, which could have led to Nadal’s injury. So, very well played!
Commiseration, though, to Nadal. But what a fighter, who never gave up, even when he was suffering and hampered by what looked like an acute back problem, which affected his game.
And even though he was clearly in pain, like a top pro he is, he played on, gave the Melbourne crowd a final to remember and managed to win the third set!
I think that just shows how great a player, not just competitor, Nadal is.
So, roll on Rolland Garros, and let’s hope Nadal recovers in time to defend his title.
