Stan the auto man?

We all know how good a tennis player Stan Wawrinka is, but who knew the Swiss World Number four would be equally adept at driving an auto-rickshaw!

As part of a promotional event, the Chennai Open top seed sat in one of Chennai’s iconic black-n-yellow auto-rickshaws and got a quick lesson on how to ride one.

As part of a promotional event, the Chennai Open top seed sat in one of Chennai’s iconic black-n-yellow auto-rickshaws and got a quick lesson on how to ride one. Before we knew it, he was off, riding the three-wheeled vehicle in the hotel’s driveway with absolute ease!

Stan took not one, but two rounds in the driveway, before coming to a smooth halt and parking it just where he found it! The auto-rickshaw driver was pleased to have his vehicle back, but ‘Stan the Man’ was more pleased with himself for having fulfilled a long-standing wish from his many Chennai visits.
