French Open 2014

May 27, 2014 by  

French Open 2014, The fans at Roland Garros have an uncompromising way of expressing themselves, and Stan Wawrinka found himself the target of a few boos on Monday night as he dragged himself off Court Philippe Chatrier.

Backing up your first grand slam is never easy, but Wawrinka – the world No 3 – played with such unthinking abandon in his opening-round defeat by Guillermo Garcia-López that he could have been watching the England cricket team.

Where the headline-writers in Australia had enjoyed themselves with “Stan and deliver”, this was more like “concession Stan”.

The last man to go from one extreme in Melbourne to the other in Paris was Petr Korda, who lifted the Norman Brookes Challenge Cup in January 1998 only to fall in the first round of the French Open to Mariano Zabaleta, the world No 213.

Admittedly, Garcia-López was a tough opening-round draw for Wawrinka: he stands inside the top 50 and has already beaten one top-10 player this season in Tomas Berdych. Yet he is hardly the sort of player who blows people off the court.
