    Just discovered his nickname on his wiki page, for those that didn't know!

    Stan elevated his game and of the set to pull it out. But 3 out of 5 against Simon, you have to be able to keep it high-level for 2 more sets! While Simon just won't fade.

    Anyway, both are on my short list of favorite players to watch.

    They sort of look like these:

    edit: go to the bird site, search for adidas men's tennis shoes, sort price low to high, one of the first one or two shoes.

    Fell asleep to Stan down 2 sets to 1, woke up to Stan serving for it. Unbelievable.

    Don't let up for a second, Stan!

    Should receive extra points and money for getting rid of the awful pusher. More so as my thread has been deleted.

    He beat Tsonga last year and he's not looking unbeatable this year either.

    What does Stan's nickname 'the Manislaw' mean, and why's he called that (perhaps knowing the meaning will make it self explanatory)?

    Wawrinka is a friggin badass. Next he will play his friend and rival Willie Tsonga.

    They played an epic 5 setter last year where Wawrinka came back from 2 sets down.

    Though the accurate version would be Stanislas the Manislas

    Stanislas.

    They actually call him Stanley rather than Stanislas or Stanislaw or Cole Slaw or whatever.

    Stan the Man....proud of you, man.

    It's funny, he gets a lot of love on these boards. For his 1hander and for his friendship with RF. I am not complaining. I am for all things 1 handed and all things Rf. I just think it is a little less than deserved.
    That said, Allez Stanley!
