Remember the best matches between Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka before they contest the Indian Wells final on Sunday, live on Sky Sports, at 8pm. Wimbledon quarter-final 2014

It was the pair's first meeting on grass Wawrinka started superbly by taking the first set but was sick into his towel during the second and despite soldiering on, eventually lost 5-7 in a tie-break.

After taking medicine from a doctor in the third set, Wawrinka failed to regain his sparkle and lost the next two sets, despite saving four match points.

ATP World Tour Finals semi-final 2014

This was one of the most intense matches between the Swiss duo. Wawrinka won the first set 6-4 before six-time champion Federer powered back to win the second 7-5. Wawrinka then served for the match at 5-4 but failed to convert three match points and Federer broke back to take the set to 5-5.

After both players held serve, Wawrinka led 6-5 in the tie-break but blew a fourth match point. Federer then won the next two points to snatch the tie-break 8-6.

"I got lucky," said a relieved Federer. "Stan played better from the baseline and that usually does the job on this court. But I kept fighting."

French Open quarter-final 2015

Wawrinka showed the sort of form that carried him to 2014 Australian Open glory with a hugely impressive victory on Court Suzanne Lenglen.

What was more of a shock was Federer's failure to break serve once in the match, something that had not happened at a major for 13 years.
