Stanislas Wawrinka beats an injured Rafael Nadal to win his first Grand Slam with victory in the Australian Open.  Switzerland's Stanislas Wawrinka won his first Grand Slam title with victory over an injury-hit Rafael Nadal in the Australian Open final. Wawrinka withstood a fightback from the world number one, who was struggling with a back problem, to come through 6-3 6-2 3-6 6-3. The 28-year-old becomes only the second Swiss man to win a Grand Slam singles title after 17-time champion Roger Federer.

Injuries have spoiled Nadal’s chances at the Australian Open before. He has retired from matches at eight tour events during his career but only two at the Grand Slam level, both at Melbourne Park. (He also withdrew from the 2016 French Open before the third round because of a wrist injury.) In 2010, Nadal stopped his Australian Open quarterfinal against Murray because of a knee problem. In 2011, when Nadal was trying to become the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win four straight major singles titles, he sustained a hamstring injury in the opening set of his quarterfinal against his Span

Rafael Nadal's bad luck at the Australian Open continues with an injury retirement in his quarterfinal match against Marin Cilic.  This year, he was bidding to become the first man in the Open era to win each grand slam at least twice. And up until the disappointing last two sets in the Cilic match, it looked like we had another memorable Nadal-Federer final in store. But after losing the first two games of the final set, the tennis legend limped over to the chair umpire and announced that he couldn’t go on, abandoning his quest for the elusive second AO title and retiring in the fifth set, 6-3, 3-6, 7-6(5), 6-2, 2-0.

Too many people getting injured," Nadal said. "I don't know if they have to think a little bit about the health of the players. Not for now that we are playing, but there is life after tennis.  They were both at the Australian Open - against Cilic and eight years ago in a quarter-final against Andy Murray. Nadal was uncertain when the injury struck him but thinks it was when he ran for a drop shot in the fourth set and felt pain high in his right leg. He said afterwards it was not his hip. He had treatment from the physio twice and tried to crunch the joint to release tension in the leg.  He was also a finalist in the 2014 Australian Sports Commission awards for his work on ‘Boots for Kids’. He is a winner of the AFL Media Association award for best news reporter and a two-time winner of Cricket Victoria’s cricket writer of the year award.

Nadal, whose only Australian Open win came in 2009, appeared primed to make a return trip to the finals. He had dropped just one set all week. And he was playing a semifinal opponent in Cilic whom he had beaten five of the six times they had played. Cilic's only career win against Nadal came in 2009, at a time when the current defending US Open and French Open champion was recovering from knee and abdominal ailments. In a match that was competitive early Wednesday (Nadal won an exciting third-set tiebreaker to take a 2-1 set lead), the world No. 1 said he started to feel pain in the next

Australian open has never been kind to Rafa, be it his injuries or the hostile crowd. But if you are even considering if he was trying to sham it, you are either a tennis new-born or an anti-Nadal extremist ! Look at his records, his humility and his respect for the game.  Nadal is the most dedicated and determined player in the history of tennis but his game style requires a lot of power and physical strength and this sometimes causes injuries or on court problems. This is a Federer fan saying all this but Nadal is not the kind of player who uses these tricks. Nadal had real back pain.

He has won the Australian Open but Melbourne has brought Rafael Nadal a lot of heartbreak, too. More of it came Tuesday when he retired in the quarterfinals.  It was a shame the contest under the lights finished with the rare retirement given the quality provided by both Nadal and 2014 US Open champion Cilic. Nadal might look back and think that if he won the second set -- and he led by a break at 3-2 -- the encounter wouldn't have gone to a fourth set and the injury wouldn't have happened. Sadly leaving the #ausopen tonight. I'll get an MRI tomorrow morning to see what is the injury.

MELBOURNE, Australia - Stan Wawrinka held off an injured Rafael Nadal to win his first Grand Slam title with a 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 victory Sunday in the Australian Open final. The 28-year-old Swiss player had never taken a set off Nadal in 12 previous meetings, but attacked from the start at Melbourne Park against the 13-time major winner.

Nadal was a hot favorite to win the title at Melbourne Park and become

Rafael Nadal retired with injury on Tuesday, sending Marin Cilic to the Australian Open men's semifinals. By Jamie Lisanti. January 23, 2018. Rafael Nadal was forced to retire in the fifth set from his quarterfinals match against Marin Cilic on Tuesday due to a right leg injury. After three hours and 47 minutes, No. 6-seed Cilic won the match 3-6, 6-3, 6-7(5), 6-2, 2-0 (ret.) over Nadal, who called it quits after struggling with discomfort in his leg in the fourth set.  Tuesday's retirement marks only the second time Nadal has retired in 264 Grand Slam matches—the last time was also at the Australian Open, against Andy Murray in the quarterfinals in 2010. In his post-match press conference, Nadal said that the injury was not to his hip but an upper thigh muscle that he could not exactly locate. He said he will get an MRI on the area tomorrow. "Is not the right moment to say for me," Nadal said after the match.

Rafa Nadal is injured and out of the Australian Open. McEnroe said on commentary: "Do you have to have an injury that occurs during the match? Are you able to say I'm a little tired can I have a rub on my legs?  Greg Rusedski has now suggested a theory as to why why Nadal had to pull out the Australian Open through injury. The Spaniard was at the top of his game last year, winning two Grand Slams and finishing as world No 1. GETTY. John McEnroe has spoken out at the use of medical timeouts. Before 2017 Nadal enjoyed a three-month break - enforced due to a wrist injury - while this year has been different. He pulled out the ATP Finals with a long-standing knee problem and Rusedski feels he hasn't had time to get his body right. The pundit told Eurosport: "Last year he had three months to prep
