Stan Wawrinka spoke about his upcoming fourth round match against Novak Djokovic at the US Open. The Swiss player said: "I played him twice in final of Grand Slam. I was full confidence. I was playing well, moving well, at the top of my game.
For sure I could only play the best tennis when it's the final. Yeah, we practice so many times during those years together. As you said, played many times against each other. Is always difficult to play. There's something with him that when I get into my best game, I know that it's going to have some big rally, I'm going to play good tennis.
Again, I lost some tough ones also, some easy ones also. We'll see how I'm going to feel in two days. We practiced here the week before tournament. I don't know exactly this year, but we used to practice almost before every Grand Slam together.
We always enjoy, we're good friends. It's always good practice, good level. It's always good for my tennis." Wawrinka continued: "I still believe you need to be yourself on the court to play your best tennis. You need to be really honest with yourself. You cannot fake it too much if you want to play your best level."
