A 39th showdown between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer will have to wait.

Nadal took a medical time-out after the third game of the second set to have tape applied under his right knee and looked in serious discomfort before battling to a 7-6 (2) 7-6 (2) victory, saving a set point to avoid being pushed to a decider.

It's the maiden Masters 1000 final for the new generation tennis player, Dominic Thiem and the skyscraper Canadian slammed 17 aces on Thiem's court, but however, Dominic Thiem led by a break of serve in the deciding set of the semifinals at the Indian Wells 2019.

Nadal stands in the way of Federer's pursuit of a record sixth title at Indian Wells. "It's a special rivalry, maybe the most special with Rafa and Novak (Djokovic)". Sometimes it's tough and it can be frustrating for me personally going through all this stuff.

It was just the fifth time in Nadal's career that he had conceded a walkover, and the first to Federer.

Canada's Bianca Andreescu, 18, advanced to the women's final on Friday night with a thrilling three-set win over No. 6 seed Elina Svitolina of Ukraine. "His serve is just unreal so even though I played incredible it was so close the first two sets".

Federer will now play the victor of the tournament's other semi-final between Austria's Dominic Thiem and Canadian Milos Raonic. "I know that every one that we have now could be our last".

"But at the same time, in the other hand, I went through fantastic moments and still going with that feeling a lot of times".

"It was an incredible day", said Thiem, who will be playing in his third Masters 1,000 final. I hope I can play aggressive tennis against him.

Knee problems have dogged the 32-year-old Spaniard for years, and they cut short his 2018 season after the U.S. Open in September. "I warmed up today in the morning, and I felt that my knee was not enough good to compete at the level that I need to compete, to play semi-finals match of this event".

"My goal is to play on all the surfaces", he said.
