Donna Vekic consoles Stan Wawrinka on the beach

Stan Wawrinka has taken to the beach to abandon his Miami Open misery and instead soak up the sun with girlfriend Donna Vekic. The 32-year-old was joined by his tennis-playing partner for a stroll along the beach, after being eliminated from the Miami Open by 19-year-old German ace Alexander Zverev. Wawrinka and Vekic embraced the early summer sun by donning swimwear and finding a prime location on the beach to settle down and relax.

Despite being top seed, Wawrinka was defeated by Zverev to crash out of the competition at a premature stage. The Swiss star had taken the first set, only for Zverev to stage a comeback and battle against the odds to emerge victorious. The result came as somewhat of a blow to Wawrinka, who had also just celebrated his 32nd birthday while out in Miami.

The tournament organisers had presented the top seed with a birthday cake following his clash with Zverev, sporting emojis on the icing and the inscription ‘Stan the Man.’ Wawrinka now currently finds himself third in the ATP world tennis rankings.
