Okay, so Anderson just won the 3rd set 6-1. Oh, how the mighty have fallen..
Can anyone who watched the match explain this? Don't tell me that it was just because Anderson played well because Wawrinka on his AO level should have been a few levels above Anderson.

Anderson played well and Wawrinka kept hitting wide when going for winners.

Not today. Anderson should have won in straight sets if not for his mental lapse. But the MTO had something to do with it? :neutral:

The serve was the key, Wawrinka's serve was sh1t, something like 42% while Anderson's was higher, more aces too. Winners were similar...Stan had 31 and Anderson had 34 but Anderson has more UEs.

My congrats to Anderson.
Well deserved victory. Wawa was never even near to his current level and Anderson took good advantage of it.
Well done!

@ merwy: from the bits and pieces I saw from a crappy livestream, yes, Anderson played very well indeed, and Wawa was subpar, especially on serve.

What is there to explain? Every day is different, that's why we watch and that's why its fun to watch.

Stanimal isn't quite ready to deal with being a GS champion. He's figuring out his tennis identity as we speak.

Nad fans want Stan to win or lose ?

Bites both ways.. He is the enemy for taking the AO at the same time if he loses, Fed's and Novak's chances are that much higher.
I don't care about Roger or Novak losing. I care about Rafa winning.

And in this match, I was rooting for the underdog. I'm glad Kevin won.

I don't think Wawrinka played "bad" per say...only the serve. He did hit 31 winners with 34 UEs...Anderson just played better.

Unrealistic expectations. Just because you have ONE great tournament, doesn't guarantee anything. Do you know how many ONE slam wonders we have in tennis? Not everybody can be a Nadal, Federer or Djokovic.
