Stan Wawrinka wins Australian Open over hobbled Rafael Nadal

MELBOURNE, Australia — Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland held on to stun a hobbled Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 and win his first Grand Slam championship in his major debut at the Australian Open on Sunday.
No. 8 Wawrinka, long the second fiddle to compatriot Roger Federer, erased an 0-12 record against No. 1 Nadal — not even having won a set off the Spaniard — and knocked off three top-10 players during his Cinderella run, including three-time defending champion Novak Djokovic.
