Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic continue their rivalry tomorrow in the Indian Wells final. The two former champions will play for a 33rd time with Federer leading 17-15 winning most recently in Dubai a few weeks ago.
The two have split eight prior meetings in tournament finals.
Federer advanced to his fifth Indian Wells final earlier today defeating Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-3, 6-1. The Swiss, a four-time champion at the event, hasn’t lost a set thus far and overall has won his last 11 matches.
“It feels good winning again here so many matches,” said Federer. “I think it’s nice winning anyway (smiling). It just solves a lot of problems and makes you feel better, happier.”
Djokovic scored his third 3-set win of the event beating John Isner 7-6, 6-7, 6-1. The Serb, who lost to Isner in the semifinals in 2012, twice failed to serve out the match in the second but as Isner’s knee got progressively worse Djokovic ran away with the third.
So tomorrow, Federer seeks his second title of the year while for Djokovic his first and his first under Boris Becker. Who will win?
