World No. 8 Stanislas Wawrinka Wins The Australian Open

1390736953010-GTY-465148473Wawrinka defeated an injured Rafael Nadal to win the Australian Open and his first Grand Slam championship.  Wawrinka’s road to victory was no easy feat as he needed to take out two of the world’s top tier players, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic to win. This has solidified Wawrinka as an emerging player and has also halted the reign of the Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic, whom each won the last 34 of 35 Grand Slam tournaments.

Congratulations to Wawrinka for never surrendering and proving to the world that the underdog can be victorious.
