Stan Wawrinka v Roger Federer Live
An-all Swiss match is set to go down in the quarterfinal of the French Open as the second seed Roger Federer will face his eighth seeded compatriot Stan Wawrinka.
This is going to be the 19th time that the duo is going to face each other, and Federer is leading the tally with a massive 16-2 lead. Both the players haven’t had any difficulties in getting to the quarterfinal. While Federer routed the 13th seeded French Gael Monfils with 6-3, 4-6, 6-4, 6-1, Wawrinka too defeated the 12th seeded French Gilles Simon in straight.
Moreover, Federer has defeated Wawrinka as recently as last month, in the Italian Open with straight sets, to move on to the final and emerge as the runner-up, losing to Novak Djokovic. However, before that, the world no. 2 did win the ATP Istanbul by routing Pablo Cuevas. As for Wawrinka, he has had two titles this year, but none of them came on clay. On the contrary, his performance on the surface hasn’t been that eventful, with the Rome Masters being the highlight of his season.
For this match, Federer is certainly the favorite one. He should be able to get to the semifinal, without any difficulties.
