Stanislas Wawrinka hits out at Wimbledon schedule

Stanislas Wawrinka criticises the Wimbledon organisers for their scheduling at this year's tournament.

Stanislas Wawrinka has hit out at the Wimbledon organisers for their scheduling at this year's tournament.

Wawrinka's rescheduled third-round encounter with Denis Istomin, which he won, took place on Monday due the tournament's policy of no action on the middle Sunday.

Delaying the match means that the Australian Open champion will have to play five times in a week if he wants to win the title at SW19.

"They just say what's going to be the schedule and that's it. Even if you want to talk to them, they're not going to change anything," he is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

"They don't listen to the player. They just do what they think is good for them."

Wawrinka will meet Feliciano Lopez for a place in the quarter-finals.
