Stan Wawrinka officially withdrew from Madrid yesterday due to his knee, the tournament announced. But perhaps bigger news from last week, the Swiss posted a picture on social media with him and former coach Magnus Norman.

Could they be reunited?

Wawrinka remains scheduled for Rome and then his home event in Geneva before the French Open. Since reaching the French Open final last year, Wawrinka has played just six events. He’s just 3-4 this year with his last match a loss to qualifier Ilya Ivashka in Marseille.

Wawrinka hasn’t played a Masters event since a third round loss to John Isner at Rome last year.

RZ Says:

That’s good news for Stan if Magnus is back as his coach. Hopefully he won’t rush back and will wait until he’s really ready.


Willow Says:

Hope this is damage limitation and hes fit for the FO ?

All is still clear ahead for the Rafa fun train.
Miss you Wawa and your on court beating ways.

You are talking to a man who is likely to go into depression when he hears the word clay. It brings him nightmares apparently. No reason has been determined yet.


RZ Says:

Thanks J-Kath. We’ll see if all these players who keep saying they are going to play Rome after pulling out of Madrid will actually play Rome.


RZ Says:

Meanwhile the Tsitsi bus keeps chugging along


gonzalowski Says:

In Madrid, Rafa´s path could be:
Monfils – Schwartzman – QF Thiem – SF Delpo

Zverev, Dimi, Nole and Goffin on the other half.


gonzalowski Says:

attractive first rounds: Nole – Nishikori
Zverev – (possibly) Tsitsipas
