Stan Wawrinka, who will begin his 19th Roland-Garros on Sunday, is at 39 the oldest of the tournament, but the Swiss, three-time Grand Slam winner, tells AFP that “passion” still drives him and that winning a Grand Slam Slam is not “the end of a story”.

“Today I am there. I hope it’s not my last, so the desire and passion are still there. Examples where people lost motivation after winning a Grand Slam, I don’t think there are many. On the contrary: winning a tournament is what we play for, so it’s the return of all the training, all the sacrifices. So I see it more as an aid to future motivation,” he declared.
