Overview: Stanislas Wawrinka v Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Switzerland's preparations for this weekend's final have been disrupted by a spat between Federer and Wawrinka, but it would appear a line has been drawn under the disagreement that defined their semi-final meeting at the ATP World Tour finals last week.

For Australian Open champion Wawrinka, his focus now shifts to Tsonga who he has shared closely fought battles on clay with over the years, with the Frenchman winning three of their five contests.

After a fairly unremarkable first half of 2014 with his only success coming at the Hopman Cup with Alize Cornet at the beginning of the year, Tsonga stunned Federer to win the Toronto Masters in August.

His instrumental role in guiding France to the finals has been another highlight of his season, but Warwrinka's rediscovered momentum he found in London last week could be the prevailing factor in their contest.

What they said:

Stanislas Wawrinka: "For me, for sure it was tough to lose against Roger with four match points. But I took a lot of positives from that week. I'm feeling great from London, a lot of confidence from there.

"When I came here with the physio and everything, everything was different. It was a new week, a new state of mind. So mentally it was easy for me to switch, to forget about this big disappointment, start on something positive."

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga: "If I didn't play these past weeks, it's not because I chose not to play. Secondly, what reassures me is that in the past I didn't always need to have a lot of competition under my belt to play well.

"So, on the contrary, when I play too many tournaments, sometimes I get tired. Honestly, for me, it is not something that will be a factor this weekend."
