According to London’s Telegraph, Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka are at odds because of Roger’s wife. The story is that Mirka was heckling Wawrinka late his Saturday semifinal match with his husband.
Some of the points the article makes:
well-placed sources attested that the two men found themselves “thrashing out their differences” in the O2 Arena’s gym after Saturday’s semi-final.
The Telegraph understands that Mirka’s intense and even provocative support for her husband – which peaked just before Wawrinka served for the match at 5-4 in the third set – caused Wawrinka to complain about her behaviour during the match.
In those late stages, Mirka is understood to have directly challenged Wawrinka, accusing him of whingeing.
when Federer and Wawrinka were encouraged by senior tennis figures to put the issue to bed at once. The two men conducted a heated 10-minute debate in the O2 Arena’s gym, in which Federer was understood to be the more assertive party.
The article also asked if the argument delayed any needed treatment on Federer’s ailing back.
Then there is also the issue of Severin Luthi who as the Davis Cup coach has to be impartial when the two are playing each other, yet there he was in the Federer box for the match.
ESPN’s John McEnroe first shed light on this, and now it appears there’s some real truth behind it.
With no actual matches or other imminent tennis news until Davis Cup begins Friday, this will be likely stay as big story of the week.
