• Rested Wawrinka aims to build on Australian Open triumph


    INDIAN WELLS: Australian Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka is aiming to build on his first Grand Slam triumph. The unassuming Swiss, playing his first tournament since he beat Rafael Nadal in the final at Melbourne in January, is the third seed in the ATP Masters tournament in the California desert. He put a toe back in the water on Friday (Saturday in Manila) by teaming with compatriot Roger Federer in a 6-2, 6-7 (4/7) 10-6 first-round doubles win over sixth seeds Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi, who lifted the doubles title in Dubai last week.
