US Open round-up: Stan Wawrinka tells fan to ‘shut up’ en route to third round https://www.juancole.com/2014/08/wawrinka-route-third.html https://www.juancole.com/2014/08/wawrinka-route-third.html#comments Thu, 28 Aug 2014 07:14:06 +0000 http://www.juancole.com/news/2014/08/wawrinka-route-third In the heat of the moment, locked in a suddenly tight match after midnight at Flushing Meadows, Australian Open champion Stan Wawrinka snapped at a rowdy spectator, telling him to “shut up”.

An hour later, his 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 victory over 91st-ranked Thomaz Bellucci of Brazil in the second round of the US Open complete, Wawrinka was able to laugh about the exchange.

“At the end of the day, they start to get a little bit drunk,” Wawrinka said at his news conference, shaking his head and chuckling. “It was OK. I had to talk to a few of them. At the end, it’s normal. Everybody was into the match. That’s OK. It can happen.”
