‘I love you’: Stan Wawrinka reacts to fan’s proposal midway during Stefanos Tsitsipas clash

“Steffi, will you marry me?” the great Steffi Graf was once hilariously asked by a male fan at Wimbledon quite a few years back. Her response was as amusing: “How much money do you have?”

The incident would have surely reverberated in Stan Wawrinka’s mind when a fan shouted ‘I love you’ at him during his fourth-round match against Stefanos Tsitsipas at the French Open on Sunday.

In the third game of fifth set, Wawrinka was about to serve when he stopped after the fan’s message. He obliged by sending across a flying kiss in the stands, much to the amusement of Tsitsipas and the spectators.

Hope Donna Vekic wouldn’t mind that.

The play resumed soon after as the Swiss went on to prevail 7-6 5-7 6-4 3-6 8-6 over the Greek youngster after battling out in the middle for five hours and nine minutes. He will next face compatriot Roger Federer.
