Taking questions from French-speaking journalists, Wawrinka admitted that recovering in time to play Federer will not be easy. We'll see how I recover, because it takes its toll, and I'll have to recover before Tuesday.
Nothing is impossible, not for Federer, who at 37 continues to defy all logic about what's possible years after players even a decade ago would hang up their rackets.
In his first Roland Garros since that beating by Wawrinka in , he has sauntered through the draw.
Now things get tougher. If Wawrinka can recover physically, then Federer will have to be close to his best, even if he leads their head-to-head record So on clay it's been definitely more dangerous than on any other surface for me against him.
I'm just happy for the guy that he's back after his knee problems. They were severe, and that's why I think he's really happy he got sort of a second life on tour, because I think for a while there, he wasn't sure if he was ever going to come back again.
It's nice to see him pain-free and playing well. I hope he's not at the level of '15, but we'll find out, because there he was crushing the ball.
It was unbelievable. Whether Wawrinka can recover and do it again is another question, but on Sunday, it was just like old times.

He channels the anger well to earn a third set point, but he can't take it! But boy oh boy does he do everything in his power to try and get it, producing honestly one of the greatest defensive points I've ever seen.
But after retrieving ball after ball, Wawrinka kills him with a drop shot that skims the net tape and dribbles just over the net.
