World no. 2 Roger Federer saw his French Open 2015 campaign come to an end after losing to countryman Stan Wawrinka in the quarter-final. While the odds favoured Roger Federer, Wawrinka put up an inspired performance to register his first win in five Grand Slam meetings against his Davis cup teammate. Roger Federer was convincingly beaten in straight sets 6-4 6-3 7-6 (7-4) by Wawrinka and bowed out of the Roland Garros 2015.
30 year-old Stan Wawrinka will face Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France in the semi-final. This is the first time Wawrinka has progressed to the last-four stage of the French Open.
Roger Federer dominated by Wawrinka throughout:
Right from the start of the game, it was Stan Wawrinka who held the upper hand. With winds up to 50 kph blowing across the courts, Roger Federer found it difficult to play according to his game-plan and his frustration levels kept growing as Wawrinka snatched game after game. When Federer was two sets down, all hope was lost and Wawrinka cruised to an emphatic win which would be billed as one of his best performances ever against his compatriot.
Wawrinka led Federer by a distant margin in terms of winners (43-28) and total points (111-93). Roger Federer however was not at his very best, giving in quite easily. Wednesday will see another epic clash in the French Open 2015 with world no. 1 Novak Djokovic faces nine-time champion Rafael Nadal in the quarter-final.
