I’m Not a Part of Big Four, But I Can Beat Anyone of Them: Stanislas Wawrinka

Stanislas Warinka is one of the few of players to have defeated tennis’ ‘Big Four’ – comprising of Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, and Rafael Nadal – on multiple occasions. The Swiss World No. 4 has got past all of his top adversaries to win two Grand Slam titles at the Australian Open (2014) and French Open (2015).

But, the 33-year-old says that he has no intention of messing up with the ‘Big Four’, even as he backs himself to beat anyone of them when it matters the most. “I’m not one of the Big Four. But I know that I can beat any one of them at the big tournaments. I know that for a fact, because I’ve already done it,” Wawrinka told Roland Garros website.

The Big Four have cleaned up almost all of the majors since 2003. However, there arose a chink in their armory of late in form of Wawrinka’s resurgence to the pinnacle of the sport, who, despite that, doesn’t want to tinker with the history.

“Its’ part of their shared history and you can’t rewrite history. I’m not trying to be part of the group. I’ve been in the top 4 or 3 for two years now; I’ve won two Grand Slams. My place is there, but I’ve no intention of messing with those particular legends,” he said.
