The main thing for Stan Wawrinka is that he’s back on the court.
After a brief return earlier in the season following knee surgery, and a few setbacks, he finally took the court Sunday in Rome.
Wawrinka lost to Steve Johnson, 6-4, 6-4. But at least the machine is running again.
“We can see with other players coming back from long and tough injuries, it’s never easy. … It’s not only about physical or tennis, but also mentally to find confidence. I need to patient. But I’m positive because my level is really high,” he told the media in Rome.
