Roger Federer has never won this storied clay court event.
Monte Carlo, Monaco (SportsNetwork.com) -
Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka will meet in an all-Swiss final at the Monte Carlo Masters after both were semifinal winners on Saturday.
Federer has never won this storied clay court event, mostly because of the dominance of Rafael Nadal, but will get a chance on Sunday after a 7-5, 6-2 win over defending champion Novak Djokovic in the second semifinal. The second-seeded Serb battled through an injured wrist in the second set.
Three straight times Federer lost in the final to Nadal, who won this title eight consecutive years before falling to Djokovic in last year's final. Nadal wasn't around for the semifinals this year after losing to fellow Spaniard David Ferrer in the quarterfinals.
