tennis • Stanislas Wawrinka won the Monte Carlo Masters for the first time Sunday, rallying to beat Roger Federer in a rare all-Swiss final.

Wawrinka came from a set down to beat Federer 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-2 in the final, another milestone in the late-blooming 29-year-old’s career. Having beaten Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal en route to his Australian Open victory this year, Wawrinka showed again he can compete with the best by earning just his second career victory in 15 matches against Federer. It was the first all-Swiss ATP final in 14 years.
