Australian Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka reached the Monte Carlo Masters final after beating Spaniard David Ferrer 6-1, 7-6 (3) on Saturday to set up a possible all-Swiss decider against Roger Federer.

Although the third-seeded Wawrinka made a string of unforced errors - 40 compared to 12 for Ferrer - he hit far more winners (31-8) in beating Ferrer for the third straight match.
