Stanislas Wawrinka recovered from a nervy start to complete a comeback victory over Marco Chiudinelli and bag his place in the second round of the 2016 Swiss Indoors in Basel, Switzerland.

The home favourite and tournament top seed emerged a 6-7(1), 6-1, 6-4 victor after being put to the sword early on by his underdog opponent, coming close to a first-round upset in the process.
