ATP Monte Carlo: Wawrinka Defeats Federer

Rain affected the play of nearly every match today, but nothing affected Stanislas Wawrinka, as he defeated Roger Federer 6-4,7-5 to reach the quarterfinals in Monte Carlo. This is the first clay court tournamant of the year for Federer and he was married to his longtime girlfriend, Mirka, just 4 days ago, so it would be easy to understand if he was a bit distracted.

Wawrinka, on the other hand, played very well en route to defeating his Olympic doubles teammate. He has been steadily improving this year and perhaps this win will give him the confidence that will allow him to further improve.

In the other marquee match of the day, Fernando Verdasco crushed David Ferrer 6-2,6-1. I can’t believe how far Ferrer has fallen over the past year. Wow!
