Nick talks Wawrinka with Paul Newman at Wimbledon

It wouldn’t surprise me if Stan has trouble in his second-round match here against Juan Martin del Potro...

Stan Wawrinka concerns me. I don’t know what’s going on in his head, but when I’ve watched him lately I’ve sensed that he’s not happy on the court. He seems to have lost confidence. You see his head drop when things start to go against him. He gets easily frustrated.

Holy mackerel, that isn’t the Stan we’ve all come to admire in the last two or three years. That isn’t the Stan who won his first Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in 2014. And it certainly isn’t the Stan who threw caution to the wind to blast Novak Djokovic off the court in last year’s French Open final. Boy, that was the performance of a player who was bursting with confidence.
