Roger Federer To Face Stan Wawrinka In All-Swiss Final

Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka set up an all-Swiss showdown for the ATP Indian Wells Masters Tennis title with straight-sets Semi-Final victories.

Federer, who won his 18th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open, subdued 17th-seeded American Jack Sock 6-1 and 7-6 to earn a crack at a record-equalling fifth Indian Wells Title.

Federer went into his clash with sock well-rested after ailing Aussie Nick Kyrgios pulled out of their highly anticipated quarter-final.

US Open Champion Stan Wawrinka knocked out Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta 6-3 and 6-2 in another Semi Final.

Against Spain's 23rd-ranked Carreno Busta, it was clear sailing for the three-time grand Slam Champion, who didn't face a break point in the 64 minute match.

Federer has won 19 of 22 career meetings with Wawrinka, including a Semi-Final win at the Australian Open in January
