He even held his nerve when the final threatened to erupt into controversy after Djokovic twice called medical timeouts in the fourth set.

Wawrinka is the oldest winner of the men’s tournament since 35-year-old Ken Rosewall in 1970 and the first over 30 to take the title since Pete Sampras in 2002.
