The No. 4-seeded Wawrinka powered into the semifinals, defeating No. 12 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 7-6 (2), 6-4, 6-3. "I'm confident enough to say that as I feel good physically, and overall on the court". "I didn't really deserve it at that moment, but I served it out".

"It was not easy to play him, he's strong", said Wawrinka, a three-time Grand Slam champion. Federer later saved two break points at 4-4 but was unable to prevent a cross-court victor and Wawrinka then held to love to force a decider. A single break of serve in the fourth, sent the game to a final set.

After saving two early break points, Federer climbed out from the whole he was in, took a break point off Wawrinka's double fault to go 4-2, saved his serve at 5-2 to eventually take the win. "That's enough", joked Federer, who could meet old rival Rafael Nadal in the final if the Spaniard overcomes Milos Raonic in their quarter-final today.
