Wawrinka Happy To Be Back In Monte-Carlo

Stan Wawrinka is delighted to be back at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters, the venue of his lone ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title in 2014, when he beat Roger Federer in the final.

“I feel good,” said Wawrinka, who is competing in the Principality for the 10th time. “I’ve arrived here on Friday and am satisfied with my training sessions.

“I am very excited to get back on clay, a surface that I’ve always enjoyed. I always love coming back here. The Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters is a tournament I’ve always liked. The first one on clay. Besides, it’s the first Masters 1000 I won so because of that it has a special place in my heart.”

Wawrinka lost to Federer in the BNP Paribas Open final in Indian Wells last month. He also reached the semi-finals at the Brisbane International presented by Suncorp (l. to Nishikori) and the Australian Open (l. to Federer).
