While the outcome was a foregone conclusion for the war between Federer and Wawrinka, Roger had already carved the results with a smooth prediction for the fans this time with the last 21 meetings with Wawrinka.
In a much speculative performance fuego, legendary player Roger Federer again set the benchmark after claiming a record-equaling fifth ATP Indian Wells Masters title on Sunday.
While Federer had won 19 of 22 prior meetings with Wawrinka, 6-4, 7-5 score to beat the star player was just another great deal for the oldest ATP master. In the world class tennis tournament, BNP Paribas Open witnessed a record breaking tie when Federer claimed the master title.
Surrounded by hundreds of shutterbugs to capture the historic moment. Roger kept smiling at the cameras while adding, “”Sport is emotional. When you win and you lose… it’s stronger than you. I like to see it. Fans do too.”
While the much celebrated pro tennis player Wawrinka reiterated, “To lose a final is never easy,” He’s the best player ever. … He makes you uncomfortable on court.”
With Federer’s 5th IndianWells, 25th Masters 1000 & 90th career singles title, the ace player tied the tourney record of Novak Djokovic, who lost in the fourth round, keeping him third behind Jimmy Connors and Ivan Lendl on the all-time list in the Open era.
Roger Federer has now successfully saved his slot to move up four spots to No. 6 in the ATP world rankings on Monday.
