Having seen off Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic respectively, Federer and Kyrgios are set to do battle in the last eight of the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event.

However, for Federer, facing the talented Australian won’t recall good memories as the Canberra native won their only previously meeting in 2015.

Kyrgios edged the Swiss in a three-set epic, 6-7 (2) 7-6 (5) 7-6 (12) in the round of 32, on clay, at the Madrid Open event two years.

There was little to separate them that day and the match is remembered for a gruelling third set tie-breaker, which of course went the way of the Aussie.

So, can Federer level up their head-to-head or will Krygios take a 2-0 lead?
