Argentinian Juan Martin Del Potro- ranked 165th in the world- produced a stunning upset to send 4th seed Stan Wawrinka packing from the Wimbledon Championships 2016. We at Essentially Sports take a look at the most important talking points of today’s game.
Wawrinka was definitely not in rhythm during the entire course of the match. While there were glimpses of brilliance from him with a few winners here and there, it’s the unforced error count that was the actual cause of his downfall. Wawrinka has struggled on the faster grass courts, as compared to his preferred clay surface. Despite producing some spectacular forehand winners, it was Stan’s backhand wing that actually disappointed, producing a number of unforced errors. Not his best day at the office, but certainly not his worst.
