The tennis player Stan Wawrinka has confirmed that he will continue working with the former number 2 Magnus Norman who heads up The Good to Great Academy, based in Sweden.
Stan Wawrinka, a former gold medallist in Beijing and the 8th rank player in the world has had the best year of his career to date having made both the Semi-Finals of the US Open and the ATP World Tour Finals.
“I have had one of the best years of my career and I feel that the relationship, trust and confidence I have built over the last 10 months with Magnus has obviously paid off gauging from my results to date” said Wawrinka. “To me, Magnus is without question the right person to guide me through my career. And there is no question, that I truly believe that he is able to help my game and in turn help me progress even further on the tour”
“Stan is an amazingly talented tennis player and a true professional. He is a pleasure to work with and I believe this is just the beginning. We had initially agreed to work on a trial basis but after seeing how well we work as a team it was only natural for me to commit long term” said Magnus Norman. “We have agreed that I will be on the road more than I have been in previous years and I very much look forward to the seasons ahead as I feel that with hard work and commitment Stan has the potential and ability to excel even further.”
