Madrid: Australian Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka suffered a shock defeat to Austrian qualifier Dominic Thiem at the Madrid Masters on Tuesday as his compatriot Roger Federer withdrew to attend the birth of his second set of twins.

A finalist in Madrid last year, Wawrinka seemed on course for a routine win after romping through the first set, but Thiem levelled with some excellent tennis in the second before sealing the biggest win of his career 1-6, 6-2, 6-4 with the only break of serve in the third set.

"I was really positive trying to find a way to win, but I didn't," lamented Wawrinka.
