Stan Wawrinka won his first US title in New York on Sunday, September 11 after battling with Novak Djokovic during four pulsating sets. Stan had chosen to wear a custom-made dark pink rubber strap on his Audemars Piguet watch during his victorious fortnight to match the color of his tennis outfit. With the coveted trophy now in his hands, “il voit la vie en rose!”
The World Number 3 saved a match point during the game and built confidence as he progressed in the tournament. After almost four hours of high-intensity tennis, he secured the third Grand Slam victory of his career, following his successes at Roland Garros in 2015 and the Australian Open in 2014. For the past three seasons, the Swiss tennis star has simply not lost a single final he has competed in and won 11 tournaments!
Stan Wawrinka, whose battle sign is an index finger pointed at his head, shows the mental strength that he has built up. “My goal is to give everything I have to be the best I can,” said the 31 year old, who perfectly embodies Audemars Piguet’s philosophy: “To break the rules, you must first master them.”
