Stan Wawrinka: 'I try to spend as less time as possible in the locker room'

12 months ago Stan Wawrinka reached the French Open final, being at a high level and playing some of his best tennis in career. After that, he underwent knee injury and now he has definitely different feelings. Interviewed by Le Parisien, the 33-year-old spoke about the beauty of the event: 'I have the same locker since 2015.

The 45. They gave me it after the win. I am not superstitious, but I found it really nice to have. It's a recognition and it brings me memories. But it doesn't guarantee me that it will happen every year!', he told Le Parisien. 'The first week is too busy.

I try to spend as less time as possible there (in the locker room). The best feeling is to play the final! There isn't absolutely anyone, there isn't almost any noise. Only two players, a little family or a few friends.' Can you lose there a match in the lockers? 'I never had issues to see my opponent before.

Leaving the locker room or going through the stairs is pleasant. When they announce players, you are just there, there is pressure and you can't go back.' ALSO READ: Chris Evert calls for players' protection after Serena Williams' decision
