  • Nadal battles injury to set up Indian Wells semi-final clash with Federer

Roger Federer defeated Hubert Hurkacz 6-4, 6-4 Friday to reach the semifinals of the BNP Paribas Open in pursuit of a record sixth title. This was the 66th victory for Federer at this event and he moves closer to a possible clash against Rafael Nadal if the Spaniard beats Karen Khachanov in the next encounter on Stadium 1.

On Federer's first service point of the match, Hurkacz swung and missed on a second-serve return.

Hurkacz had his first break point in the next Federer service game, but the 37-year-old whipped a delicious forehand victor past his opponent and held.

The young Pole was unable to follow that pace, giving away nearly 40% of the points in his games and getting broken once in each set to propel Roger into the last four. He fought off two break points in the second set, including the last game when he closed the match with a forehand victor off a short ball.

The safety, who was with the Seattle Seahawks at the time, approached the Cowboys head coach and had a message for him. The Browns felt good about their chances of landing Thomas, Jason La Canfora with CBS Sports reported Tuesday night.

Roger saved it with a forehand crosscourt winner and had to play against another one in the tenth game while serving for the win, erasing it with a service winner and sealing the deal with a forehand winner to secure the place in the semis.

Hurkacz aced Federer to trail 5-4. The 12-time Indian Wells semi-finalist responded to the first break chance against him with calm, rushing from the net back to the baseline when a lob went over his head, forcing Hurkacz to make a tough volley, before overwhelming the 22-year-old with a sharp cross-court forehand passing shot.

The fourth seed broke in Hurkacz's third service game of the first set and his second service game of the second set, with the Pole making forehand errors to concede the advantage on each occasion.
