Stan Wawrinka had vowed: he had come to Geneva to retain his title. To contribute to the evolution of the Banque Eric Sturdza Geneva Open which he is the ambassador for. Mission accomplished beyond all expectations. On Saturday he played fantastic tennis against a quality opponent, to offer "his" public a rare communion. Throughout the games, he has imposed his physical power to seal a victory that does not suffer any dispute in front of Johan Djourou, his most fervent supporter.
The afternoon started in the most beautiful way with a thrilling doubles final. Victorious from Wimbledon and the Masters two years ago, the Dutch Jean-Julien Rojer and Romanian Horia Tecau won 6-2 6-7 (9) 10-6 against the Colombians, Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah, who won the title at Parc des Eaux-Vives two years ago.
