His defeat on Friday follows that of Swiss tennis star and world number three Roger Federer to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

The semifinals of the competition are now without most of the big-name title contenders as, in addition to Federer, world number two Rafael Nadal and world number four and defending champion Andy Murray have been knocked out.

The sixth-seeded Fish put behind him an error-strewn second set with a dominant third over the Swiss, who is now ranked 14th in the world.

Should Wawrinka produce a good result in Cincinnati, he can hope to return to the world tennis top ten.
