Federer and Wawrinka prepare for tennis battle

Federer made light work of his match against Reister

(Reuters)

Swiss defending tennis champion Roger Federer has advanced to the fourth round of the French Open with another straight-sets victory.

Top-ranked Federer on Friday defeated qualifier Julian Reister of Germany 6-4, 6-0, 6-4 in the Roland Garros stadium.

In the next round of the clay tournament, Federer will on Sunday play fellow Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka who beat Fabio Fognini of Italy 6-3, 6-4, 6-1.

Federer didn’t face a single break point against Reister and had 34 winners. But he double-faulted on his first match point before finishing off the 165th-ranked player with a forehand winner.

Switzerland’s Marco Chiudinelli was knocked out of the competition on Thursday by John Isner of the United States 6-7, 7-6, 7-6,6-4.
