Wawrinka Wins Chennai Open Doubles Title

Date
07 January 2013

The opening tournament of the new 2013 season, Aircel Chennai Open was held until January 6th. YONEX player Stanislas Wawrinka (VCORE Tour 97) competed in both singles and doubles events.

In the men’s doubles, Stan played with Benoit Paire of France and advanced to the final. They faced Andre Begemann / Martin Emmrich of Germany and defeated the opponents in straight sets by 6-2, 6-1 to win their first doubles title at the tournament. The champions overcame the German pair in 56 minutes with two breaks in each set. This is Stan’s second doubles title in his career and he reached the last 8 in the men’s singles event.

During the tournament, Stan played with new clothing,TW1616EX and TW2111EX. In the doubles final, he selected the white shirt and the navy blue pants. The new TW1616EX shirt has three superior characteristics. The first is VERY COOL which lowers body heat by 3 degrees for cooler play. The second is ‘cross shaped’ fibres which creates a fabric for absorbing sweat, drying quickly and lighter weight. The third is static electricity removal by carbon impregnated conductive fibres.

At the end of the last year, we shot the movie with Stan in Switzerland. This movie is going to be very nice. It will be launched later this month, please don’t miss it!
