US Open Championship 2016
Stan Wawrinka, 31, defeated world’s No. 1, Novak Djokovic, and became the oldest US Open men’s Champion and claimed third Grand Slam Title.
In an interview when asked about this victory, he said:
“I was shaking in the locker room. I started to cry. I think this Grand Slam was physically and mentally, the most painful match, I have ever played. I was feeling tired already at the beginning of the match. I was feeling the cramp coming in the third set. I thought of Samuel’s poem….which worked for me!!!
“Ever tried, Ever Failed. No matter .
Try again, fail again, Fail better”- Samuel Becket
