Roger Federer reached his career's 116th, 35th ATP 1000 masters & 5th final at Indian Wells as he eased past Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-3, 6-1 in 61 minutes.

Roger Federer is just one win away from winning his 79th title & a win in Sunday's final will bring his ranking back to Top-4. Roger Federer after spending more than 10 years in ATP TOP-4 ranking has been ranked outside Top-4 since losing in the 2nd Round of Wimbledon, 2013.

 

 

Roger Federer when asked about returning back to Top-4 stated that, it does make life easier knowing that you won't have to play Djokovic or Nadal in the quarter-finals of the tournaments.

 

 

 

Set-1

 

 

It was a very windy day at Indian Wells & the Ukrainian never looked settled. He was playing his 1st ever masters semi-final & the terrific form Federer is in currently made his job even more tough. To add to that, his 1st serve absolutely deserted him & the plethora of unforced errors made it little impossible for Dolgopolov to challenge Federer who looked in absolute vintage form.

 

 

Federer broke Dolgopolov's service in the 8th game on his 1st break point & then served out the set with ease in the 9th game winning the 1st set 6-3 in just 30 mins.

 

 

Here are the 1st set stats ------

 

 

Biyuhx1CUAAyjz_.jpg

 

Clearly, Dolgopolov's 1st serve % was a mere 41% & to add to that, 12 unforced errors & the sublime form in which Federer was in made it an one sided set & match.

 

 

Set-2

 

 

The Swiss maestro broke the Ukrainian's serve in the opening game of the 2nd set & that pretty much ended any hopes of a comeback. Federer got the double break in the 5th game to get to a 4-1 lead & then broke Dolgopolov's service for the 3rd time in the 2nd set in the 7th game to win the set 6-1 in 31 minutes.

 

 

The final scoreline read 6-3, 6-1 in 61 minutes & here are the overall match stats -----

 

 

Biy2JqSCEAA1CEt.jpg

 

The wind, sublime Federer, 39% 1st serve % & 25 unforced errors by Dolgopolov made it an absolute one sided match.

 

 

Roger Federer will play Novak Djokovic in the final of BNP Paribas Open, Indian Wells 2014. Novak Djokovic overcame a resurgent John Isner in three sets.

 

 

Head to head: Roger Federer & Djokovic have played 32 times with Federer leading the head 17-15 vs Djokovic.

 

 

They have played 18 matches on outdoor hard court with Federer leading the head to head 10-8.

 

They have played 8 final matches and are tied 4-all in the finals.

 

 

Match start time: The mens singles final match start time is 2 pm PDT or 5pm EDT or 9 pm GMT or 10 pm CET or 02:30 IST or 05:00 CST/PHT Or 10:30 am AEST.

Roger Federer booked his place in the final with a calm, commanding performance which was a pleasure to watch.

From his point of view it was good that this match was an untaxing straight sets win, whereas Djokovic had more of a battle on his hands in his semi final against John Isner, who took the second set in a tie break, though in the end Djokovic had a decisive win in the third, winning his semi final 7-5 6-7(2) 6-1

Following his semi final win Federer gave a short interview to. BNP Paribas Radio (which Vibhu has linked to in post #11 above). He was in high spirits, taking more selfies at the end :)

Nervous anticipation is already building for the final. With Roger in his current form he can win this. I sincerely hope he is able to maintain his levels and lifts that trophy tonight :)

Thanks everyone for all the pics, vids and especially the interview.  I do like to see what sort of mood Roger is in after his matches.  Did he say at one point he was a little bit sick after Dubai?  Wonder what was wrong. Cold maybe. 

 

Anyway it was a pretty clinical dispatch of poor Dolgopolov wasn't it.  Dolgo didn't seem capable of dealing with the wind, the occasion or Roger. Felt a bit sorry for him at times, but he's had a good run in IW.  Roger didn't seem to need to do very much to beat him, but then again, that is often the case with Roger when he's playing well.  He does tend to make things look easy.

 

Looking forward to tonight's match.  I wouldn't like to predict the result, but hope it will be a win for Roger of course. Back in the top 4 would be fantastic. The natural order of things returned.

Yes I heard that too about him being a little sick after Dubai. Whatever it was thankfully he recovered to cope with what his opponents threw at him here at Indian Wells, and may that continue tonight! Travelling half way around the globe must have taken its toll to begin with too. I'm just relieved to see the Federer family looking like all is well with them out there in the Californian sun. :)

Not noticed Roger wearing tape on his hands before ... Perhaps so much high power tennis in recent weeks has raised a slight problem there ...
