Nadal WD's before Federer clash with knee injury

Nadal's knee appeared to flare up in his quarter-final win over Khachanov on Friday, where he twice received treatment from his trainer, with the Spaniard stressing after the match he would need to assess the injury ahead of the match on Saturday.

The 22-year-old pushed to keep the set alive at 5-4 as he took the 20-time grand slam champion to deuce but a long forehand from the Pole conceded the first set in 30 minutes. "They warned me they were going to put me on at 11.00 (a.m.)".

"At this stage of the tournament, anyway, you have to bring your best game".

We spent a lot of time throughout this week, together and apart, watching matches over and every again, my matches, other matches, the guys I'm playing. "He's at a higher level than he was at the Australian Open... especially in a place like Indian Wells, where he feels comfortable, he's clearly very tough to play".

"I don't think those five matches matter that much", Federer said.

Federer received a walkover to the final, where he will play either Austria's Dominic Thiem or Milos Raonic of Canada.
