US Open: Federer beats Wawrinka in semifinal

NEW YORK: Roger Federer has made his first U.S. Open final since 2009.

The 17-time Grand Slam champion hasn't dropped a set at this year's tournament after beating countryman Stan Wawrinka 6-4, 6-3, 6-1 in 92 minutes Friday.

He'll meet top-ranked Novak Djokovic on Sunday in a rematch of the Wimbledon final won by Djokovic.

Wawrinka played his Davis Cup teammate evenly in the first set, but the difference was Federer converted his only break point while saving all four against his serve. Wawrinka started to fade as the match went on while Federer got stronger and stronger.
