    MONACO – Stanislas Wawrinka won the Monte Carlo Masters for the first time Sunday, rallying to beat Roger Federer 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-2 in a rare all-Swiss final.

    The Australian Open champion had lost his previous two Masters finals and looked like losing a third until Federer’s level dropped suddenly late in the second set, and Wawrinka began troubling the 17-time Grand Slam champion with his aggressive backhand.

    The fourth-seeded Federer , who accepted a wild card invitation to play in the tournament, was also looking to win it for the first time after losing his three previous finals here to eight-time champion Rafael Nadal from 2006-08.

    Wawrinka has beaten Federer only twice in 15 matches but both victories have come here. He also beat him in the third round in 2009.

    “It’s exceptional to be able to win my first Masters title here,” Wawrinka said.

    It was the first time that Federer and Wawrinka met in a championship decider. In the last all-Swiss final, Marc Rosset beat Federer in Marseille in 2000.

    “Stan was tougher at the end, I think he deserved it just a little bit more ,” Federer said. “It’s a huge win for him after winning his first Grand Slam this year, also to win his first Masters. To take the opportunities when they’re there, that’s key in a tennis player’s career.”

    With the third-seeded Wawrinka serving for the match, Federer shouted in frustration as he missed an easy forehand on second serve at 15-15. On the next point, Federer’s backhand went wide and Wawrinka clinched the victory with a crisp forehand winner that landed on the line.

    The players , who are good friends, shared a warm hug at the net.

    “I had a great week here,” Federer said. “Congratulations to Stan.”

    It is the seventh title of the 29-year-old Wawrinka’s career, and his third this year. He lost his previous Masters finals at Madrid last year and Rome in 2008.

    Federer broke for a 3-2 lead when Wawrinka’s backhand long, and served out the first set when his countryman over-hit another backhand.

    Wawrinka secured a break to take a 2-0 lead in the second , but Federer broke straight back with a brilliant passing shot down the line and confidently held to love to send the second set into a tiebreaker.

    But then he seemed to lose his way.

    One sloppy backhand from Federer allowed Wawrinka to move 2-0 ahead, and the Australian Open champion moved 4-1 up with a volley at the net.

    Federer saved two set points at 6-3 but Wawrinka leveled the match with a clinical smash after Federer had returned his serve a bit too high.

    “I don’t think I served quite so well early on in the third set. I think he really found his range and started to hit bigger, deeper. He didn’t miss that many second-serve returns anymore,” Federer said. “He gave me a couple cheap points in the first couple sets which he later on really didn’t give me anymore.”

    Federer was seeking the 79th title of his illustrious career, and his 22nd Masters trophy. The 32-year-old Swiss has lost three of his four finals this year , with the other defeats against Novak Djokovic at Indian Wells and to Lleyton Hewitt at Brisbane.

    “You must see the positive side. Try not to be disappointed or frustrated,” Federer said. “What I see is that if I’m in that position again, if I keep trying as I did, at a certain point it’s going to go my way. If you feel good mentally, then things are going to turn out good.”

    The next two Masters events on clay are at Madrid and Rome leading up to the French Open , which starts on May 25.

    Weight and size is an additional thing you’ll want to look at. If it’s going to be suspended from a height or standing on a table, your very best gamble may be focusing on weight. Projectors that vary from 10 to 15 lbs would likely be your best gamble since they offer the best combination of brightness and price. One other thing that’s really significant is the aspect ratio. Most computer screens and video pictures make use of a 4:3 ratio. But if you are gonna be seeing mostly widescreen or HDTV shots, make certain your projector is suited for a 16:9 ratio.

    A while back, you would additionally have to place the number of colors into consideration. On the other hand , these days, all projectors showcase 16.7 million colours. Even though these features are crucial, there are also some practical features you may want. One feature is known as “Intelligent Resizing Technology”.
