Explosive Start for Stan the Man at ATP World Tour Finals

Stan Wawrinka (VCORE Tour GSHT-PRO) made his debut at the ATP World Tour Finals in London on November 10th, and impressed in a confident first match against Tomas Berdych. Stan seized control of the match the moment he stepped on The O2’s hard court, refusing to give his opponent a chance to take a breath. The world No. 4 Swiss rushed to a 4-0 lead in the first set in just 13 minutes, proceeding to take the set confidently 12 minutes later. The second set was a similar affair, with Stan the Man proving to be unstoppable, maintaining a keen edge over his opponent at every turn. Stan impressed with his trademark backhands, acquiring five aces, five break points, and winning an impressive 95% of his first serve points. After a speedy 58 minutes, the match ended at 6-1 6-1 for Stan. His next round robin match places him against Novak Djokovic.

Before his first big game at the ATP Finals, Stan paid a visit to Wigmore Sports in London last week. Several excited fans gathered to meet the Australian Open winner, receiving autographs and taking pictures with the champ. We interviewed Stan at the store, with a video set to go live soon, so stay tuned!

Stan’s off to a great start, so be sure to keep rooting for him as he makes his way through the tournament!

Stan’s excellent performance on the court is supported by his YONEX gear. With SHT-PRO tennis shoes equipped with the YONEX Power Cushion, Stan is able to move around briskly and comfortably, regardless of the surface. Stan took the Power Cushion test with us earlier this year, catching an un-broken egg as it was dropped 30ft above the Cushion. Watch the video here.
