Stanislas Wawrinka was one of the ATP's standout players in 2013, reaching a career-high ranking of No. 8 and qualifying for the end-of-season ATP World Tour Finals. He also reached the semi-finals of the US Open, where he produced an impressive performance against Novak Djokovic, winning the first two sets before falling to a five-set loss. It looks like Wawrinka is now aiming to step up his game another notch for 2014.

"I've been discussing a lot with my coach Magnus Norman this year. This year my confidence grew and I played well in big matches and performed very well against top 10 opponents," said Wawrinka in an interview with PTI. "It all comes step by step and in New York and London I showed that I can do well against the very best on a big stage."

"The semi-final in New York, what a big success and I'm happy that I made my first appearance in a Grand Slam semi-final," he added. "Of course you are disappointed after losing such matches, especially during the first few days after the match. But then you need to discuss the match with your coach, analyse it and see the positive stuff behind it. Those defeats make you stronger mentally and give you extra motivation to keep fighting, working hard and try again."


Wawrinka feels that consistency is the difference between himself and the game's elite players, so he's looking to improve in this department. "You know they are just amazing players. They are so consistent, Rafa, Novak and Andy have all won at least one Grand Slam and played many finals, something that I'm still hoping to achieve one day."

The Swiss No. 2 also feels that his close match against Djokovic at the Australian Open, as well as his title success in Oeiras where he defeated David Ferrer, were key moments for him in the just season gone by.

"I gained a lot of confidence from my great performance in Australia even if I finally lost that match against Novak Djokovic," he said. "Winning another tournament in Oeiras was important and a huge confidence booster. I always knew that I could be back in the top ten if I keep working hard and I'm happy that I made it in 2013."
