The 18th-time Grand Slam champion has beaten fellow country-man Stan Wawrinka 6-4, 7-5 in 1 hour and 20 minutes of pretty good tennis in Indian Wells. So let's take a look at Roger's stats to see where and how the match was won.
In the first set Roger's serve was close to perfection. The Swiss only dropped 4 points in 5 service games and registered a very high percentage of first serves in, 75%, winning 83% of points on both first and second serve.
Roger hit 1 ace and 4 service winners with no double faults. From the baseline Federer hit 5 winners (2 forehand and 3 backhands) and 6 unforced errors (2 forehand and 4 backhands). When he came at the net, the World No.9 (No. 6 on Monday) was impeccable with 100% of points won thanks to 3 volley and 2 smash winners.
Federer capitalized on the first break point that Wawrinka conceded, in the 10th game. to claim a set where he managed to allow Wawrinka only 2 winners from the baseline.
