    10/10/12 10:33 PM | Kelli DeMario
    Federer faces Wawrinka in round of 16 World No. 1 Roger Federer is back on court to face fellow seed Stanislas Wawrinka at the Masters 1000 Shanghai. The players are slated to contest their 13th career meeting late Thursday.

    Top seed Roger Federer holds a commanding 11-1 series advantage over 13th seed Stanislas Wawrinka. The two last met at the 2012 Masters 1000 Cincinnati, where the 31-year-old recorded a semifinal victory in straight sets. Wawrinka will be looking to win his first set against Federer since 2010.

    Federer opened his Shanghai bid with a straight-set ousting of Chinese Taipei's Yen-Hsun Lu. The Swiss held 11 consecutive service games through 81 minutes of play.

    The veteran is seeking his ninth straight quarterfinal berth of the season.

    Wawrinka is through to the third round after holding off Denis Istomin in three sets. The 27-year-old tallied nine aces and three service breaks en route to a 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 win in nearly two hours.

    He is bidding for his second consecutive quarterfinal berth.

    Prediction: Federer in straight sets.
