Stan Wawrinka points out 'political chaos' enveloping tennis.
Three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka says there has been a "worrying decline in moral standards" in tennis as "politics have overshadowed the action on the courts." In a letter published Friday in The Times of London, Wawrinka discusses the case of Justin Gimelstob, the ex-player, coach and TV commentator who resigned this week from the ATP board of directors after pleading no contest to misdemeanour assault for attacking a former friend.
