Stan Wawrinka said: "It's never the way you want to finish a match. I feel sorry for Novak. He's a friend and an amazing champion. We've played some amazing battles all my career. I want to keep my level [from] tonight.
I was playing some very good tennis. I am happy to be back. It helped me big time. Knowing that I have the game to beat him in that stadium. Tonight I was feeling great. I realised when I came to practice that I was moving well, so I was quite confident that I was going to bring a good level tonight."
