The World number four defending champion strolled to a 6 -3, 7-5 win over world number 44 Coric in one hour and 26 minutes. Wawrinka asserted his supremacy over Coric, winning the third clash against him and extended his Chennai winning streak to 12 matches and 24 sets.

Wawrinka was clearly playing at a different level and the onus to make it a contest was on the young Croat. While the Swiss hardly conceded points on his serve, Coric's serve was under tremendous pressure from the start.
