The second semifinal at Indian Wells is underway between Roger Federer and Milos Raonic. At stake is a spot in the Indian Wells final tomorrow against defending champion and top seed Novak Djokovic.
The Canadian Raonic is also trying to become the sixth player to beat both Federer and Rafael Nadal in the same tournament. The last to do it was Novak Djokovic at the 2013 ATP World Tour Finals.
Alex Dolgopolov tried and failed a year ago in this same Indian Wells event. Djokovic has done it 3 times, Nikolay Davydenko and David Nalbandian twice each and Andy Murray and Juan Martin del Potro have also accomplished the feat.
