Stan Wawrinka: I miss the emotions of the competition and I also miss the fans

Three-time Grand Slam champion Stann Wawrinka says he misses the emotions of competing and the fans in an interview to the Swiss channel RTS. The former World No. 3 commented on the RTS show. "I miss the competition, I miss the emotions of the competition and I also miss the fans.

"I miss the whole process of getting to the top of a match or a half or a final. Given the difficulties in today's world, I took advantage of being able to stay at home a bit and spend time with my daughter. " The 35 year old, who is currently ranked No.

17 in the world, also spoke about his recent interactions with fans on social media and the live sessions he had with Frenchman Benoit Paire, who is one of his close friends on the tour. "I tried to entertain in relation to my life, to the fans I have and to bring another vision of what I was doing.

I am lucky to have friends on the Tour like Benoit (Paire). "We know that when we talk, we do it honestly and it allowed people to discover our slightly different personalities. We are honest in what we say and what we do.

"I always liked to show different things, the fans see us playing, they don't know what we do outside, we were able to take take a step back and give another facet. " Wawrinka has been one of the most active players on social media during the recent quarantine period.
