Day three of the Federer-Wawrinka gate brought with it a new video of Mirka Federer allegedly calling Stan Wawrinka a “cry baby”.
The incident in the video takes place in the 11th game at 5-5, 40-40 when Wawrinka, who just lost three match points in the previous game, backed away from a Federer serve because of something said from the crowd. Was it Mirka heckling Wawrinka with a “cry baby” for complaining to chair umpire Cedric Maurier when he was changing racquets at 4-4?
According to reddit, here’s the conversation translated:
Umpire:” I didn’t hear, Stan.”
Stan: “You know why? Because I’m not on her side” (i.e., the umpire didn’t hear because for that game Stan was on the other side of the court). “She did the same thing at Wimbledon. Every time I’m on her side, she talks when I’m about to serve. It’s unbearable.”
Umpire: “Stan, what’s the matter?”
Mirka (allegedly): “Cry baby”
Wawrinka: “Hm? What does she have to say?”
With Davis Cup just a few days away, Federer tried to smooth perception a little by tweeting this team picture showing the top two Swiss in hand and in good spirits. Wawrinka also re-tweeted the pic.
