Tsonga and Federer have played 15 times spanning back to 2008. Federer has the upper hand in the head to head, with a 11-5 record. Federer has won both matches between the two this year–in the fourth round of the Australian Open and and in the quarterfinals of the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters.

Tsonga and Federer met twice last year, with each winning once, and Tsonga won the only meeting in 2012.

Tsonga expressed confidence after taking out Dimitrov on Friday.

“I’m more consistent and it’s good because it (helped) me beat three guys in the top 10,” Tsonga said. “I didn’t do that (for a) couple of years now and it gives me hope for the rest of the year.”

“When you play against Roger, it’s always special,” Tsonga said. “First, because you play in a big area, in a big stadium anyway. And every time the crowd is for him, so it’s quite a good sensation. It’s quite a good feeling when you win against 10,000 people.”

It will be Tsonga’s first appearance in a Masters 1000 final since he lost to Federer three years ago at the BNP Paribas Masters. Tsonga’s only Masters 1000 title came in Paris in 2008.
