Stan Wawrinka closes in on return


Stan Wawrinka says returning to action in Rome next week is the goal, after pulling out of Madrid as a precaution.

“I lost 10 days’ training because of a calf injury,” Wawrinka said Thursday as he confirmed his presence in Gstaad, after Wimbledon. “The knee is holding up. I’m convinced I’m seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.”


He called upon former coach Magnus Norman for a two-week training block. “After that, we’ll see,” he said.

Wawrinka’s schedule is a work in progress. He’s not ruling out Switzerland’s Davis Cup playoff tie in September.
