Nadal sets up Federer semi at Indian Wells

Nadal sets up Federer semi at Indian Wells

The multiple Grand Slam champions both won their quarter-finals on Friday, although Nadal in particular had to work hard to overcome Russian Karen Khachanov 7-6 (2) 7-6 (2) in a match during which he required treatment on the knee.

Nadal leads Federer 23-15 on a head-to-head basis but the Swiss has won the past five encounters.

It would have been the 39th career meeting between Nadal and Federer, who advances to Sunday's final in pursuit of a record sixth title at Indian Wells.

"Not that I didn't expect it, but it definitely went better than I thought it would". I'm very excited to be in the semis here.

The Swiss great has won the last five in the series, but says that's of little significance now that it has been nearly a year and a half since their last meeting in the Shanghai Masters final in October 2017.

Just hours earlier Federer had looked forward to the chance to take on a healthy Nadal, after similar knee trouble spelled the end of the Spaniard's US Open campaign last year, and his US Open campaign last year.

Nadal said he won't play again until the Monte Carlo Masters clay event in mid-April. "He seems healthy. When Rafa is healthy, especially in a place like here in Indian Wells where he feels comfortable, he's clearly very tough to play". "They warned me they were going to put me on at 11.00 (a.m.)".
