Federer who has never won the trophy in the principality, beat Novak Djokovic 7-5, 6-2 as the holder suffered with a right wrist injury which limited his serving to the 150 kph range.

Federer, who has lost three finals in Monte Carlo to Rafael Nadal, will be making his first title bid here since 2008.

Earlier Wawrinka, the Australian Open winner, booked his spot at the expense of David Ferrer 6-1, 7-6 (7/3) a day after the Spaniard stunned eight-time champion compatriot Rafael Nadal.

The last all-Swiss ATP final was in Marseille in 2000 when Marc Rosset beat a teenaged Federer.
