Stan Wawrinka makes a crucial mistake at Indian Wells

Stan Wawrinka makes a crucial mistake at Indian Wells

Credit Stan Wawrinka with keeping his sense of humor after a gasp-inducing mistake in the third-set tiebreaker Wednesday proved his downfall against David Goffin of Belgium, who beat him, 6-3, 5-7, 7-6 (5), in the round of 16 at the BNP Paribas Open.

The tiebreaker was even at 5-5 when Wawrinka, seeded third here, got the great gift of a high bounce and an open court ... only to whack an overhead comically long. Goffin, seeded 15th, held on to advance to the quarterfinals against Marin Cilic of Croatia, a 7-5, 5-7, 6-2 victor over Richard Gasquet of France.
