              Highlights of the quarter-final between Milos Raonic and Sam Q

Del Potro is playing great tennis so far this season and just dominated a really good player in the semifinals.

Roger Federer is coming off a three sets win over Borna Coric that took 32 games to decide.

Juan Martin del Potro advanced to his third Indian Wells semi-final after a 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory over Philipp Kohlschreiber.

Raonic chose to serve and volley on break point two games later, a tactic that did not pay off as he found the net and handed Del Potro a 4-1 lead.

After a slow start to his season following a calf injury past year, Raonic prevailed by serve-volleying and attacking the net against Querrey, who was playing in his first Masters 1000 quarter-final. Raonic made the final at the BNP Paribas Open in 2016 before losing to Novak Djokovic.

"It's an honor for me to play a final against him".

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (AP) - Wrist, hip, foot and leg injuries.

Del Potro is looking for his 22nd career and second straight ATP title in a row after winning earlier this month in Acapulco where he beat three top eight players in a row. I admire him a lot.

The former Wimbledon finalist talked about all of his injuries over the past year: "Right adductor, left glut at the beginning of the year". Williams returned to the top 10 previous year after being runner-up at the Australian Open and Wimbledon.

"But thank God I'm here and healthy", he said. I play more aggressive with my two-handed backhands, and I play more down the line. "I have too much love from the crowd, for my fans, and I'm doing this because I love it". He won the Australian Open to achieve his 20th grand slam title in January, and then claimed the Rotterdam title in February, going back to world No 1 in the process.

"I should have lost a match", he said. A cross-court forehand victor was followed by a backhand down the line to set up two break points and, feeling the pressure, Raonic double-faulted.

Here is a rundown on what to watch for when the two men take to the court in a match that is due to start around 1am UAE time on Monday morning.
