The 17-time Grand Slam champion outmuscled Wawrinka 7-5, 6-3 in the semifinal contest that lasted for one hour and ten minutes.

With the win, the Swiss maestro has set up a final clash with world number one Novak Djokovic, who also made it to the summit showdown by defeating fifth-seed Rafael Nadal in straight sets.

Earlier, Federer, who has recently been awarded with the Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award, had also brought Djokovic's 23-match winning streak to an end by defeating him in the round-robin clash of the tournament.
