Oeiras, Portugal

Wawrinka, Vesnina© Lagos Sports Stanislas Wawrinka and Elena Vesnina took to the waves on Sunday morning.

Stanislas Wawrinka and Elena Vesnina braved the cold conditions in Oeiras Marina on Sunday.

The players took to the water in a sailing boat, the Patrão Mor, for one hour in windy conditions. Wawrinka steered the vessel and Vesnina was First Mate.

“It was an amazing experience,” said Wawrinka. “I got to steer the boat, which I enjoyed. It was nice to do something different, having raced boats last year.”

Wawrinka, the second seed, reached the Portugal Open semi-finals last year. “It is my second year and I am happy to be back,” he said. 

“I really enjoyed the tournament last year. I hope to play well and keep improving my game and ranking this year.”

Wawrinka will play Albert Ramos or Carlos Berlocq in the second round. Seventh seed Vesnina faces local wild card Maria Joao Koehler in the first round.
