Roger started the match strong of a 21-3 win-loss record against Wawrinka that has never managed to beat the Maestro on hard courts (16-0 the stats in favor of the former world no.1 on this surface).
Roger started the match strong on serve, and eventually the only difference with Wawrinka was a break at love in the 6th game (4-2) that was enough for the Swiss legend to win the opener 6-4.
Roger didn’t also blink in the second set to concede just 4 points on serve. Again the difference was 1 break in the 3rd game, and Federer won the match 6-3 6-4 in 59 minutes.

HEAD TO HEAD vs. Edmund
Roger will face Kyle Edmund for a place in the quarters. Federer and Edmund have never played each other so far on tour. The Swiss is the favorite to reach the quarters with a straight-sets win.
