The 34-year-old is a prominent face of ATP events like the Monte-Carlo Masters series, Madrid Masters, Portugal Open, Rome Masters, BNP Paribas Open, Indian Wells, etc which have earned him a multi-million fortune over the years.
Wawrinka reached a career-high ATP singles ranking of number 3 in January 2014. His crowning moments include three Grand Slam titles at the 2014 Australian Open, 2015 French Open, and 2016 US Open.
On all three occasions, he has triumphed over the No. 1 player in the final. He has clinched 16 titles so far in his career in singles and two in doubles.
Wawrinka combined with compatriot Roger Federer to win the 2008 Olympic doubles Gold Medal for Switzerland. They also won the 2014 Davis Cup together.
Since 2018, Wawrinka has been struggling on and off with injury issues.
In 2020, Wawrinka reached the Australian Open quarter-finals and the third round of the French Open.
After dropping out of the top-250 in the ATP rankings, Wawrinka has clawed his way back into the top-20 and is currently ranked at no. 18 in the world.
He is currently coached by Dani Vallverdu. Some of his best years came under the tutelage of Magnus Norman.
Wawrinka dated WTA star Donna Vekic for a brief period and reportedly split in 2019.
He was earlier married to Swiss TV reporter Ilham Vuilloud, and they split for a second time in 2015. They spent 10 years together and six years as a married couple and have a daughter together.
The Swiss superstar’s career prize-money from tennis amounts to $34,632,708.
