With the public spotlight growing brighter since his Australian Open title, Stanislas Wawrinka has told the ATP that he now wants to go by Stan.

Wawrinka’s manager, Lawrence Francopan, told the “Tages-Angzieger” via translation, “Stanislas is long and bulky in the written form, also not easy to pronounce. There was always confusion. Furthermore him anyway call all, ‘Stan the Man.’”

Stan the Man it is.
