Wawrinka met fin à sa saison

Wawrinka met fin à sa saison”

Après avoir initialement renoncé aux tournois de Montréal et Cincinnati à cause d'une blessure au genou gauche, le Vaudois a finalement décidé en concertation avec son staff médical de se faire opérer. "Après avoir considéré toutes les options possibles avec mon équipe, j'ai pris la décision difficile de mettre un terme à ma saison afin de soigner mon genou, qui nécessite une intervention chirurgicale", a déclaré le Suisse.

Wawrinka, vainqueur de trois tournois du Grand Chelem, avait déjà annoncé son forfait aux Masters 1000 de Toronto et Cincinnati. À Londres, il avait d'ailleurs subi l'élimination au premier tour contre le Russe Daniil Medvedev. Une première depuis 2013, après ses succès à l'Open d'Australie (2014), Roland Garros (2015) et l'US Open (2016).

Forcément touché par ce coup dur, Wawrinka a exprimé toute sa déception dans sa publication: "C'est extrêmement décevant, mais je pense déjà à la suite et à mon rétablissement". "C'est la seule solution pour être sûr de pouvoir à nouveau être compétitif au plus haut niveau pendant plusieurs années". J'aime ce sport et je vais travailler dur pour revenir à mon meilleur niveau et joueur de nombreuses années.

Un peu comme Novak Djokovic, mais pas de son plein gré, Wawrinka entame donc une longue pause: "Je profite aussi de cette opportunité pour remercier mes fans, qui m'ont envoyé plein de messages de soutien durant les derniers jours".
