Roger Federer beats Stan Wawrinka to win at Indian Wells

In this way, Federer manages to dispute the tenth semifinal in Indian Wells and second of the year.

Federer did not drop a set in the tournament and outclassed compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka 6-4, 7-5 to in the title match yesterday to win his fifth title at Indian Wells.

"I mixed a lot of speed and spin", Wawrinka said. If the world number six could pick up his third title this year he could climb as high as fourth in the world. He was 17th before the Australian Open and he is moving his way up very rapidly. Wawrinka has been tucked under Federer's shadow for all of his career, but he has managed to emerge into the light in the last three years, winning three major titles and of course claiming the Davis Cup with Federer in 2014. "So it's something you can learn from, especially for me who is going to turn 32 in few days". "It's weird, you know, but you just feel like it's paying off, you know". At the time, several pundits wrote off Federer and never expected the Swiss master to compete for ATP Tour titles, let alone Grand Slams, for the remainder of his career.

Earlier in the week, Federer blasted his way into the last eight with a stunning display against long-time rival Rafael Nadal, the first time he had claimed three consecutive wins over the gritty Spaniard. "It is maybe not as surprising as Australia but still unbelievably surprising for me that I was able to back it up here in America. I was mixing it up, so it was not easy for him to find a solution". "That's a promise I made to myself that if I play tournaments that's how my mindset has to be and will be", he said.

"I want to wish Roger the best of luck for the rest of the tournament and thank everyone for their support so far here at the BNP Paribas Open".
