Stan Warwinka Calls Roger Federer An A$$hole [Video]

In a hilarious moment yesterday during the Indian Wells trophy ceremony, Stan Wawrinka called Roger Federer an “asshole” for laughing at him just as he was to start his runner-up speech.

It was good in nature though Wawrinka has good reason to believe that since Federer denied Stan a first Indian Wells title. Federer won the match 64, 75 and upped his record against Wawrinka to 20-3 and 14-0 on hardcourts. Yup, an a$$hole!

“I’m really happy to be in the final here in Indian Wells. It’s still an amazing result for me,” Wawrinka said. “I always want more, and I’m going to try to do everything possible to be the winner next time, but I need to take what’s positive. That’s what I’m going to do for the next few weeks.”

Wawrinka was trying to win his second Masters after beating Federer at 2014 Monte Carlo. But Federer was too good on the day.

“He’s just amazing,” Wawrinka said of Federer. “The way he’s playing is just so beautiful, is just so nice. Everything looks perfect. He’s moving amazingly well. He has amazing touch. He’s doing everything you can do on the tennis court.”

SG1 Says:

If Wawa could return a little better, he’d be right up there with Fed dominating everything. Federer is able to get into Wawa’s service games a little better than Wawa can get into his. And I think this is a general truth about their respective games. Federer puts a lot more pressure on the server when he’s playing well than Stan does. But I’d still take Wawa’s backhand over Federer’s. It’s one nasty piece of business.

skeezer Says:

Astute as always, I noticed the same that match. Stan was just getting the returns back, via block / push whatever, where as Fed was smacking those. Ok, credit to Fed is a better server overall, but still, I think Wawa had more aces than Fed?
If Wawa learned to smack his returns more, well…..there ya go.

Tennis Vagabond Says:

There’s a lot more differences in their games than the ROS. Did you see the net stats?

In general, Wawrinka’s BH has been better than Feds. In this match, and in the 2 big Rafa matches, Fed’s was better. The big question is if this is a hot streak, or if Fed really has found the Fountain of Youth and formula for a perfect BH at the same tim. Perhaps while practicing his BH at a secret court somewhere in the Everglades, he hit a ball over the fence and went looking…

Tennis Vagabond Says:

Ya know, it just occurred to me that this was a battle of the last two slam champs. Has anyone even mentioned that? Adds a bit of lustre to the title.

Tennis Vagabond Says:

Also, rematching the Fed-Rafa match– I had forgotten that Fed SABRed him! That was fantastic.

Tennis Vagabond Says:

Other points from re-watching Fed-Rafa.

1) Skeeze, now I see that kick serve to ad court you were talking about. That was huge.
2) One of the biggest dynamics was that Rafa had no idea where Fed was going with his groundstrokes. Federer was able to switch from DTL to cross court from both wings- from the same position and prep. It was impossible to tell where Fed was going.
3) Incredible how much Fed was going for winners. This was really one of the most aggressive offensive matches I can think of.
4) Fed actually could have served much better- only 54% first serves on the match.
5) Fed looked like a Jedi master, hitting shots to parts of the court he couldn’t see.

That is all.
