Wawrinka again shaky before advancing

PARIS (AP) The funky shorts have gone and, it seems, taken some of Stan Wawrinka's mojo with them. To defend his French Open title, he knows he will need to get it back.

Following a five-set win in the first round, Wawrinka again wasn't convincing in the second round on Wednesday at Roland Garros, with a 7-6 (7), 6-3, 6-4 victory over Taro Daniel of Japan that wasn't all that straightforward.

Most notable were the break points the third-seeded Swiss player failed to convert against a player 89 spots below him in the rankings and who stalled in the first round last year, when Wawrinka rode his sublime back-hand to the final and won in his now infamous shorts against Novak Djokovic.
