Stan the Man takes a stand

Stan Wawrinka has put it out there as the moral arbiter of the ATP with a letter published in the Times of London Friday.

He deplores the tacit complicity when Justin Gimelstob was first charged with felony battery in December.


He points to the ATP Board (where three reps vote per the players’ wishes) for not protecting the players from themselves.

“I want to be represented by people with clear, strong ethical values,” he wrote.

Wawrinka (and Andy Murray, who has also spoken out) both served a term on the Player Council.

They didn’t run again.
