The greatest rivalry in men’s tennis resumes this evening at Indian Wells. For the 29th time Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal meet on a tennis court at 7pm local time in the desert. Nadal leads his Swiss rival 18-10 in their head-to-head and 5-2 on outdoor hardcourts, losing their most recent meeting a year ago in this very tournament.
Because of a knee, Nadal has played just two matches on hardcourts in the last year. Federer, though, has been beset by a back ailment. With both stars limping into this showdown, their first ever in a quarterfinal, who’s got the advantage? Who’ll win?
