Federer, Wawrinka Set Up Showdown in Indian Wells Final

INDIAN WELLS, California – Swiss tennis great Roger Federer continued his strong run of form at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California, defeating American Jack Sock on Saturday to set up a showdown against countryman Stan Wawrinka in the final.

Federer raced out to a quick lead and wrapped up the first set of the semifinal match before the first ball change.

Sock then managed to hold his serve throughout the second set, but the 18-time Grand Slam champion won the tiebreaker handily to wrap up a 6-1, 7-6 (4) victory.

Federer, who routed arch-rival Rafael Nadal of Spain in the round of 16, has not lost his serve once in four matches and has only faced one break point.

Earlier Saturday, the third-ranked Wawrinka made quick work of Spaniard Pablo Carreño Busta to reach his first Indian Wells final.

“It’s an amazing result to be in the final here, especially in Indian Wells,” the Swiss three-time Slam winner said after his 6-3, 6-2 victory. “I am really happy with the way I’m playing.”

Saturday’s semifinal win contrasted with Wawrinka’s victories in the round of 16 and quarterfinals, in which he was stretched to a third-set tiebreaker by both Japanese lucky loser Yoshihito Nishioka and Austria’s Dominic Thiem.

The 10th-ranked Federer will be looking to win this hard-court ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event for the fifth time on Sunday.
