Federer and Wawrinka meet in the final of the BNP Paribas Open on the back of straight set semi-final wins over Jack Sock and Pablo Carreno Busta, respectively.

For third seed Wawrinka, it is not only a chance to win his first title at Indian Wells, but also to avenge his Australian Open semi-final loss to the 18-time Grand Slam winner in January. The US Open champion would also win his 16th career singles title with a win over Federer.

Meanwhile, Federer will be looking to continue his resurgence following his Grand Slam win in Melbourne. The Swiss legend, seeded ninth for the event, notably defeated Rafael Nadal in the fourth round and will hope to achieve a 90th career singles title as well as his fifth title at Indian Wells.

The final will be the duo's 23rd head-to-head match with Federer currently ahead with 19 wins.
