Stan Wawrinka Tickets at the Australian Open 2017

The world’s #4 tennis star, Stan Wawrinka, has started this season with a bang by being the 12th active tennis player to reach the 400-win Australian Open mark in his career, just a night after his contemporary, Roger Federer, was the first player to have reached the 300th tour-level win achievement. When you look at the season that he has had, it is no surprise that Stan Wawrinka tickets are selling early. Here is a timeline of events for one of the most shining stars that will be competing in the 2017 Australian Open.

Aircel Chennai Open 2016

Wawrinka got off to a good start for this tennis season when he snagged his first major victory at the 2016 Aircel Chennai Open. He successfully defended his title when he defeated Borna Coric in the Finals.

Australian Open 2016

The 31-year-old, Swiss, tennis superstar then went for the Australian Open, playing in the #4 seed against Miles Raonic, in a much-anticipated five-set clash held at Rod Laver Arena.

Raonic, the Canadian #13 seed beat Wawrinka and got himself a seat at the Quarterfinals. Raonic was deemed focused and intense all throughout the sets, while Wawrinka seemed to be preoccupied or somewhat distracted at times.

Wawrinka was able to advance on to the 16th round when he won against Lukas Rosol in Rod Laver Arena. He remains unbeaten in three ATP meetings with Rosol, and he has an 11-match winning streak when pitted against players from the Czech Republic.

While Wawrinka ended up losing his set against Rosol, he played with such fervor that even though he lost, Stan Wawrinka ticket sales for future events skyrocketed after this tournament.

Wimbledon 2016

When looking at his next major tennis tournament, the 2016 Wimbledon, Wawrinka showed his natural skill against young tennis player, Taylor Fritz, who has an amazing backhand, a strong serve, and the potential in the future to be a tennis superstar that could land in the overall top #10 position. Stan Wawrinka stepped up against this youthful, future star and proved his salt, but fell in a major upset to Juan Martin del Potro. Overall, it was a successful run for Wawrinka in the 2016 Wimbledon.

Rogers Cup 2016

Wawrinka went head-to-head in battle with Asia’s top player, Kei Nishikori, who surprisingly beat the Swiss champion at the Rogers Cup. Nishikori said he is just grateful for the opportunity that was given to him especially that he was able to play in the Rogers Cup Masters Final. Wawrinka faded away in the tiebreaker during the Semi Finals which gave Nishikori the ticket to his second Master 1000 Finals 2016.

No-Show at Rio Olympics 2016

Stan Wawrinka, along with other tennis masters like Rafael Nadal, Milos Raonic, Tomas Berdych, and Dominic Thiem won’t be playing in the Rio Olympics. This means 5 out of the top 10 tennis players in the world are no-shows for Rio Olympics due to injury and suspected Zika scare. Despite the sudden hiatus, for those hoping to get them, you can get your Stan-fix by grabbing your Stan Wawrinka tickets now to get into the best seats for the Australian Open 2017.

The no-show is very surprising since Wawrinka had such success in previous Olympics. Roger Federer and Wawrinka shared the limelight when they won Gold in the Doubles category at Beijing, back in 2008.

Wawrinka had an aggravated back injury brought about by the stiff competition during the Rogers Cup in Canada. He was actually looking forward to Rio Olympics (which would have been his 3rd participation in the Olympics) after his tournaments in Beijing and London, but had to skip Rio due to doctor’s orders.

Wawrinka’s manager released a statement that the 31-year-old Grand Slam champion felt increasing pain during the Rogers Cup tournament, but did not say where the injury was--although there are reports that he sustained a back injury in the aforementioned tournament. He traveled back to Switzerland to have a complete routine checkup with his physicians in Geneva and was advised to reduce physical activity after thorough examination and MRI scan.

Prepping for Masters 1000 Tournament

Stan Wawrinka is back to practice after issuing a statement of withdrawal from the Rio Olympics. He is now back on the hard-courts of Monte Carlo Country Club. The Swiss tennis champ is trying to shape up and get back in fighting form to play in time for the Masters 1000 Tournament that is happening in Cincinnati, Ohio, next week (from August 15 to 21).

Despite rumours and let-downs, Stan Wawrinka has the heart of a true-blue champion who does not give in and give up, nor succumbs to failure. These speed bumps in the road cannot stop or slow down a tennis warrior who has proven his mettle in the courts for many years now. Sure, there are a lot of young tennis players who could keep up with Wawrinka’s game but they have yet to earn their stripes in the field.

It takes a lion to survive the jungle – Stan Wawrinka has proven that he is an alpha amongst the pack. Get your Stan Wawrinka tickets today to see more of the #4 tennis champion live at the Australian Open 2017.
