Nadal WD's before Federer clash with knee injury

Rafael Nadal Injured

Nadal took a medical time-out after the third game of the second set to have tape applied under his right knee and looked in serious discomfort before battling to a 7-6 (2) 7-6 (2) victory, saving a set point to avoid being pushed to a decider.

Rafael Nadal (ESP) returns as he wins his semi final match against Karen Khachanov (not pictured) in the BNP Paribas Open at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden.

Nadal remains without a title since Toronto in August previous year and a win over Federer since the Australian Open in 2017 but with a four-week break he will re-emerge for the clay-court season in Monte Carlo before yet another French Open at Roland Garros.

While Federer floated into Sunday's Indian Wells men's final (ESPN2, following women's final at 4 p.m. ET) without dropping a set all tournament, his two greatest rivals sputtered.

Mashud said about 17 Bangladeshi players and team staff on the bus watched as blood-soaked victims staggered from the building. Earlier, armed police in New Zealand swarmed central Christchurch Friday amid a shooting at a mosque in the South Island city.


Their rivalry stretches back 15 years, and Federer couldn't help wondering how many more chances they might have. Sometimes it's tough and it can be frustrating for me personally going through all this stuff.

Rafael Nadal speaks to the media after withdrawing from his semi-final match against Roger Federer.

Canadian teenager Bianca Andreescu rallied past No. 6 Elina Svitolina 6-3, 2-6, 6-4, winning on her fourth match point to reach the biggest final of her young career. "I know that every one that we have now could be our last". The trainer returned again with Nadal leading 3-2 in the second set.

Federer received a walkover to the final, where he will play either Austria's Dominic Thiem or Milos Raonic of Canada.

Knee problems have dogged Nadal for years, and they cut short his 2018 season after the U.S. Open in September.

Federer believes Nadal is playing better than he did in losing the Australian Open final to Novak Djokovic, who was upset earlier in the week.

"Another goal of mine was to make history, and I just did", she said, smiling. Speaking to SRF, the 17-time Grand Slam victor added: "Roger is a person you can talk to, inside the court I admire him". "You can imagine that I can't be happy".

"It's always something special to play him", he said.
