Here’s the moment Stan Wawrinka managed to do the impossible against Rafael Nadal

Swiss wild-card Stan Wawrinka played the shot of the Rogers Cup in Toronto as he went down to top-seed Rafael Nadal on Thursday.

World No 1 Nadal battled past Wawrinka 7-5 7-6 (7-4) to reach the quarter-finals and stay on course for his fourth Canadian trophy at the Masters 1000 event.

Nadal, playing his first event since losing to Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon semi-finals, will face sixth-seed Marin Cilic of Croatia next.

But it was Wawrinka who stole the show with a moment of genius – when it looked as though the ball was beyond his reach – the three-time Grand Slam champion pulled off a magical return. Click on the video above to watch it and then see highlights below…
