Stan Wawrinka is having a long break after reaching the US Open quarter-finals that he lost to Russian Daniil Medvedev. The Swiss player skipped the St. Petersburg Open and the Rakuten Japan Open in Tokyo with an injury. He is also skipping the Shanghai Rolex Masters.
Before making his return on the Tour in Antwerp where he took a wild card invitation, Wawrinka is enjoying some free time on Saturday in Monte Carlo with the former world-class soccer star Marcel Desailly. Wawrinka was holding a bottle of champagne with some girls around.
Desailly, a world and European champion with France, who won the Champions League with Milan and Marseille, was sharing those moments on social media. Then Desailly cancelled the photos. Meanwhile, Wawrinka's fellow Swiss Roger Federer was asked if he plans to attend Rafael Nadal's wedding in October: "I do not know anything about it.
And I have a plan for that week," said the Basel native. Nadal said: "I am not planning a lot. Of course, my girlfriend spoke to me about it and she gave me my opinion." Famous people like Don Juan Carlos, the tennis players Feliciano López and Fernando Verdasco are set to be there."
Rafael Nadal's outfit for his wedding with his longtime girlfriend Maria Francisca Perello will be designed by Brunello Cucinelli, an Italian brand. They have been working on it for a couple of months. It will be blue and black. The Brunello Cucinelli brand is based in Solomeo, near Perugia, north of Italy.
