"We don't speak a lot but I think he's kind of a guy who he likes to be for himself and for his own team".

Wawrinka, whose ranking has fallen to 224th following knee surgery, came from a set down to upset sixth-seeded Grigor Dimitrov in the first round for just his second Grand Slam victory since last year's Wimbledon. She sat out Wimbledon a year ago while pregnant.
