ATP Basel – Sensation in Switzerland: Stan Wawrinka eliminates Casper Ruud

The feat of the day is signed Stan Wawrinka. Former world number three, and now ranked 194th at the ATP, the 37-year-old Swiss player beat Casper Ruud on Tuesday evening in the first round of the Basel tournament (6-4, 6-4). The winner of Roland-Garros 2015 needed 1h18 of play to get the better of the current third player in the world. In the next round, Switzerland will face Brandon Nakashima, who scored for David Goffin (2-6, 7-6, 6-4).

It was the first opposition on the professional circuit between the two men. Very efficient on his service (9 aces, no double faults, 93% of points won on the first ball and 3 break points saved out of 3 conceded), Stan Wawrinka was extremely effective in return. Indeed, the winner of the 2014 Davis Cup made the break on the two opportunities he got. The native of Lausanne therefore continues her journey on the land of Roger Federer.
