Stan Wawrinka is offering an excellent tournament at the US Open 2023, and he has reached the third round of Flushing Meadows, a good result against the Argentinean Etcheverry beaten in four sets. Excellent sensations for the Swiss expert who will face Jannik Sinner in the next round.

The two are very close friends and we have seen them face off several times, now Jannik is favorite for the next round. Stan spoke at the press conference after the match and analyzed the victory. He told: "It was a great battle against a great tennis player and I think the conditions on the court today were quite good.

I had different sensations with the ball compared to the first round and it wasn't easy. In general, however, the level was good and we fought hard. I'm happy that I made it through this round especially after losing the second set like that (had set points).

It was important to stay in the match, I had some problems and was in physical difficulty, he was tiring me but I'm happy with how the match ended." For the record Wawrinka then won with the result of 7-6 6-7 6-3 6-2.

The tennis player then talked about the relationship with his historic coach and revealed: "I'm really happy with Magnus.

He's the coach with whom I've had the best results in my career and it's always nice to work together. We know all the opponents and analyze everyone well to push us towards victory. We've been working hard for a year now to get back to the top.

It's true, I'm old, but I feel physically good. I'm back from a match lasting more than three hours against a younger tennis player. But for tennis it will never be just a physical challenge. sinner? He's destroyed me twice already this year and I think it's going to be really tough.

I have now played and am playing better than at the start of the season but he is also in great shape and just a few weeks ago he won his first Masters 1000. It will be a great challenge and to have a chance I will have to play my best tennis." Then the Swiss continued: "What drives me to keep going? The passion and love for tennis, as long as I'm fine I'll play and I love the emotion you get when you're on the court.

Today I was on court 17 and there was the full stadium, playing with a Top 30 or a Top 10 and winning is always something special. When I retire, I will never find these emotions again."
