"I asked for some water that's not f***ing freezing" - Wawrinka loses his cool with umpire at Roland Garros

In one of the more comical rants at this year's Roland Garros, Stan Wawrinka was left furious over the temperature of the water in a surprising rant at the umpire during his first-round match against Corentin Moutet.

The Swiss star was taking on Frenchman Moutet out on Court Suzanne-Lenglen when he burst into a row with the official. Wawrinka let his frustrations get the better of him over, of all things, the condition of the water at Roland-Garros. Specifically, the fact that it was too chilled for his liking.

In a bizarre rant, Wawrinka yelled from the net: "It is not normal at a Grand Slam!

"Is that normal? Do you think it is normal? So you call someone. It has been three changeovers, I asked you for some water, that is not f***ing freezing!

"Because it is not good. You are at the French Open and you cannot get normal water! You think it is normal?"

The 37-year old has endured a torrid few years on the ATP Tour as he has sought to shrug off persistent setbacks and injuries, but is making a popular return to the big stage on the red dirt in Paris. Unfortunately for the veteran star, Moutet clinched a four-set triumph to delight the home fans, prevailing with a 2-6 6-3 7-6 6-3 victory.
