Stanislas Wawrinka has caused one of the biggest upsets of the Australian Open as he ended the three-year domination of Australian Open champion, Novak Djokovic with a quarter-final victory.
The Swiss eighth seed won 2-6 6-4 6-2 3-6 9-7 to set up a semi-final against Tomas Berdych.
This Djokovic’s first loss under new coach, Boris Becker. The defeat also brings to an end a winning streak of 28 matches on tour – and 25 matches over three years in Melbourne.
His last defeat in the Australian Open – which he also won in 2008 – was back in 2010 when he was ill and lost in the quarter-finals to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
