Stan Wawrinka lost to the Italian Thomas Fabbiano 7-6(9) 6-3 7-6(6). After the match, the Swiss said: 'Well, for sure I’m really disappointed to lose a match like yesterday and today. I think I was playing really well yesterday.
It was really making the game. During the match, I was a little bit between in my game, not aggressive enough, not moving well enough.’ Asked if he was surprised by Fabbiano's high tennis level, Wawrinka replied: 'No, I’m never surprised when a player is playing well,’ he added.
‘I expect a player to play well. I watch him play a few matches. I know how well he can play. He loves the grass, apparently. So he’s a great player.’ Wawrinka's next tournament is unknown. He was expected to play Bastad and Gstaad on clay, but last month he announced his withdrawal.
Stan is set to restart on the North American hard-court season, but asked about his plans Wawrinka replied: ‘I don’t know. I will see. I think the grass court was good for my knee. Right now I’m not thinking about what’s next.' After that, Wawrinka admitted that he wants to stay alone and doesn't want to answer journalists' questions, although he is sorry because that's not a 'professional move.
But he left the room, which is the proof of his sadness and disappointment. ALSO READ: Roger Federer: 'The end is closer than ever'
