PARIS -- It is 17 months since Stan Wawrinka walked into the news conference room at the Australian Open, grimacing in pain after his first attempt at coming back to the Tour after knee surgery.
There were times when he was not sure if he would ever to be able to play at his best level again, the scars of two operations in to his left knee still raw, physically and emotionally.
But at Roland Garros on Sunday, in five hours and nine minutes of epic, brilliant, emotional tennis against No.
The crowd stayed all the match. This kind of atmosphere, for sure, I enjoyed. I enjoy a lot. That's the reason why I still play tennis, and that's the reason why I'm practicing every day to try to win big matches like that.
So for sure, when I'm on the court I try to enjoy and remember also everything I have done to be here.
On a brutally hot day, when temperatures hit 90 degrees fahrenheit and made even watching at courtside uncomfortable, Wawrinka -- seeded 24th -- and Tsitsipas put on an exhibition of ballstriking.
No one hits a backhand like Wawrinka, but with Tsitsipas showing off his own stunning one-hander, it was an aesthetic delight. With his long hair kept in place by a headband, there are strong echoes of Bjorn Borg in Tsitsipas, his strut also reminiscent of the Swede who won the title here six times.
His shirt was covered in clay, the aftereffects of trying to fend of the Wawrinka passing shots. Aggressive throughout, the Greek created chance after chance, only for Wawrinka to close the door, time and time again.
Tsitsipas had a set point in the opener but took just five of his 27 break point chances as Wawrinka shut the door and finally, broke his spirit.
I feel very disappointed at the end. Long time since I cried after a match, so emotionally [it] wasn't easy to handle.
I will try to learn from it as much as I can. Wawrinka floated a sliced backhand that curled into the court and landed on the line.
Tsitsipas, who had left the volley, circled what he thought was the mark but the umpire, down from his chair, ruled it in, a decision accepted by Tsitsipas as Wawrinka stood, arms above his head in sheer joy.
I was just hoping that the umpire would confirm it," he said. It's so tense out there right now. Wawrinka tightens up on the break point and duffs a backhand into the net.
