Stan Wawrinka (ATP 236) did not play until the end of the season after undergoing surgery on his left leg last March. A few weeks ago he played in Marbella (ATP Challenger) and lost to Elias Yamar. In Monte Carlo on Monday, he made his first appearance in the main series in 13 months. Alexander Public (ATP 36) is a former Third World World contender. Switzerland surrendered to Kazakhstan 6: 3, 5: 7, 2: 6.

In the first set, Wawrinka scored four in five games in a row 2: 2. In the second game, at 4: 5, he saved three sets of balls, but at 5: 6 he gave up the pass. Public ruled in the decisive edition, scoring two breaks and returning to 5: 1. The Swiss fought to the end. He chased down the match ball and used his break point in the seventh game. However, after a while, he lost his service and ended up participating in the tournament.

In a two-hour, seven-minute game, Public made 14 aces and 11 double faults. In his first pass, he scored 35 points out of 42. Kazak gave up three passes and used five of his 11 chances.
