Stan Wawrinka knew it would be tough, but Damir Dzumhur proved to be too strong on Wednesday at the Banque Eric Sturdza Geneva Open. Dzumhur won 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 with Wawrinka leading 3-0 in the deciding set.
« It looked good, but it didn’t finish well,” said two-time former champion Wawrinka. “It was a tough match out there for sure. Again, this is typical the match that I’m still losing, still missing. I know I’m playing well, I’m moving well, but maybe I think a bit too much with what I want to do, how I want to do it, and I don’t play simple enough. Those little moments in the second set and third set turned the match. That’s what I’m working forward to change up.
« Even if I lost today, in general I’m playing well, so I need to keep pushing myself, keep trying to find a way to win those tight match, and I know that things can change quickly. »
