Meet Roger Federer, David Foster and the Backhand Boys

Meet Roger Federer, David Foster and the Backhand Boys

However, his withdrawal in Indian Wells means Federer advances to the final four, where he will face either Jack Sock or Kei Nishikori.

Australian Open champion Federer and big-serving Kyrgios have been the two most impressive players through the early rounds this week, and fans were anticipating a classic match. And he was attacking really well, first and third sets.

Sock improved to 15-2 this year and set up a semifinal against Roger Federer, who advanced via walkover when Nick Kyrgios withdrew with what the Australian suspected was food poisoning.

Nishikori had not dropped a set in the tournament until Friday.

"I've given everybody their money's worth, a three-setter every match so far", the 24-year-old Sock said in an on-court interview.

The Swiss was in fine form as he secured a 6-3 6-2 triumph at Indian Wells, which took the third seed a little over an hour to complete.

Federer, Foster, Grigor Dimitrov and Tommy Haas reunited to perform a more polished, well-practiced rendition of the 1980s classic "Hard to Say I'm Sorry" by the band Chicago.

Wawrinka will play four-time Indian Wells champion Roger Federer or American Jack Sock in Sunday's final.

"These are the matches we train for but I'm in no fit state to take to the court".

"So bad, yet so good", was his assessment, and when asked if the Backhand Boys themselves might one day feature at the Grammys, he replied: "I don't think so". "But on the flip side of that, I am playing confident tennis as well myself".

One break of Carreno Busta's serve was enough to give him the first set, and Wawrinka earned a hard-won break for a 2-1 lead in the second with a blistering forehand on his fifth break point of the game that Carreno Busta had no hope of getting back.
