Wawrinka outshines Nadal to claim Australian Open

27 January 2014 [17:10] - TODAY.AZ
Stanislas Wawrinka beat Rafael Nadal to secure his first Grand Slam title.

An emotional Nadal was close to quitting the match at two sets down with a back injury, only to stage a remarkable recovery and win the third set following a medical timeout.

But Wawrinka withstood the fightback from the world number one and top seed to win 6-3 6-2 3-6 6-3 and become only the second Swiss man to win a Grand Slam singles title after 17-time champion Roger Federer.
