DJOKOVIC RIPS HIS SHIRT IN CELEBRATION AFTER DEFEATING WAWRINKA IN EPIC TIE AT AUSTRALIAN OPEN
An astonishing half-volleyed paddle at a sharp angle delivered the final blow making Top seed Novak Djokovic to barely get into the last eight of the Australian Open with a 1-6, 7-5, 6-4, 6-7, 12-10 victory against the No 15 seed Stanislas Wawrinka
Wawrinka had played like a raging bull for five hours and two minutes, cutting and thrusting with a brutal forehand and elegant backhand. Still it was not enough to finish off a competitor whose spirit makes him stand alongside the greats of the game.
