Where to Watch Live

The play is scheduled to begin at 5pm BST. Live coverage is on BBC Two and BBC Two HD. Live scores, regular updates, radio commentary and live streaming link will be available on Wimbledon's official website.


World no 4, Federer cruised into the last-eight of the season's third Grand Slam event after thumping 23rd seed Tommy Robredo, 6-1, 6-4, 6-4, in the previous round on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old fourth seed took 94 minutes in total to knock the Spaniard out of the tournament to pave his way into the quarterfinal for the 12th time.

The 17-time Grand Slam winner now takes on his compatriot Wawrinka, who also ousted another Spaniard, Feliciano Lopez needing nearly two hours.

The 29-year-old needed a tiebreaker to clinch the first two sets, 7-6 (5), 7-6 (7), before clinching the third set with relative ease, 6-3, to seal his progress.

The world no 3 has already beaten Federer this year in the final of the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters but the game on Grass could turn the tables.

Wawrinka made it through to the last-eight of the Wimbledon Championships for the first time in his career and will be keen on getting the better off his compatriot once again, in pursuit of his second Grand Slam title.

Federer is yet to drop a set in this year's competition but the same can't be said of Wawrinka, who conceded one set against Denis Istomin in the third round.

The winner of this clash would have been up against Rafael Nadal but the world no 1 suffered a shock defeat to Nick Kyrgios in the fourth round. The 19-year-old Australian takes on eighth seed, Milos Raonic in the other quarter-final clash on Wednesday.

Federer holds a staggering 13-2 lead over Wawrinka in overall meetings. The pair have clashed thrice in Grand Slam events where the Swiss maestro has triumphed on all occasions.

Federer also has a 4-1 lead in the last five matches against Wawrinka.

What They Say

Roger Federer: "I'm very pleased with the first week. Here we go into the quarter-finals. It's really exciting being so deep in the tournament, closer to the finish line. Everything I need to happen is happening to go deep in the tournament. It's important to keep it up and not have any major let downs or minor hiccups. I need to be really focused out there. I'm able to do that. I'm healthy. Things are exactly where I want them to be. But I'm only in the quarter-finals and that's where the tournament really starts."

Stanislas Wawrinka: "It's going to be fun, I hope. Playing him on grass here at Wimbledon is going to be something special for sure. He's won so many times; he's playing so well. But I'm happy with the way I'm playing so far since the beginning of the tournament. Yeah, (the victory in Monte-Carlo) it's going to give me a lot of confidence about myself, knowing that I can beat him, doesn't matter where, on big stage. But tomorrow (Wednesday) it's going to be a different experience. First time on grass. First time Wimbledon. I know that if I can do a good match, I'm going to have some chance."
