The 28-year-old Swiss player, Stanislas Wawrinka (VCORE Tour G), has been receiving more attention due to his sensational season last year.
Thanks to this breakthrough, Stan was named Swiss Personality of the Year in a ceremony in Switzerland on Saturday, January 11. He was honored to receive the recognition. “It’s great. It’s a big honor for me to be the personality of the year. I have a lot of support in Switzerland, a lot of people watching what I’m doing, trying to support me throughout the year. It’s absolutely a big thing for me,” he said a press interview in Melbourne on Sunday.
Furthermore, Stan was featured in the 2014 January issue of ActivInstinct magazine published by the UK online retailer, ActivInstinct. In the article, he answered some questions looking back on his last season and also commented on his gear. “I’m really happy with the relationship I have with YONEX, it’s an amazing brand. I’m really happy with the racquet which helps me with my game and allows me to be able to play faster and with more spin,” he told the magazine.
