Swiss tennis star Stan Wawrinka is known for his serve and powerful backhand on the ATP Tour. The 37-year-old has won three Grand Slam titles, the 2014 Australian Open, the 2015 French Open, and the 2016 US Open. However, the former World No.3 revealed he never set a goal of winning a Grand Slam title when he was young.

“For the moment, it’s very premature to talk about a legend concerning me, especially since I’m still on the circuit”, Stan Wawrinka said in a recent interview. (Quotes Have Translated Into English Via Google Translator)

“For me, the term legend makes sense once you have really finished your career. I’m glad you can say that about me, but I don’t think about it.”

“I am very happy with what I have accomplished. I had results much greater than I expected.” 

“When I was young I never set myself the goal of winning a Grand Slam tournament. My dream was just to be a professional tennis player. That is to say to enter the top 100 and live from my passion.”

After several months of rehab, Stan Wawrinka recently resumed his action at Monte-Carlo Masters 2022, where he fell in the opening round to Alexander Bulik. And he is now ranked No.236.
