Wawrinka criticizes Roger Federer: ´He turns things how he wants them´

Federico Coppini - 15-12-2012 - View: 21652

During an interview, Stanislas Wawrinka talks about the Davis Cup and the forfeit of Federer.

Stanislas Wawrinka is preparing for the upcoming Davis Cup tie against the defending champion Czech Republic. In an interview on Sports.ch, the Swiss talked about the forfeit of Roger Federer from the tie.

“Roger keeps on saying that Davis Cup is important to him, but clearly it’s not. At the end of the day, tennis is an individual sport and it’s fair that everyone looks at his own career, but I understood his decisions more in the past than now. Apparently, to him, Davis Cup is not yet that important; I’m sorry he turns things as he pleases.”

Wawrinka then spoke about his own love for the team: “Even if the results don't always come, I gave my best for this team. To me, it has always been a funny experience. I don’t know if Roger will change his mind, I don’t kid my self about it, because I’m not that naïve as he apparently thinks.”
