Rafeal Nadal decides to pull out of the ongoing Indian Wells after the reoccurring right knee trouble flared up in his quarter-final victory over Karen Khachanov, and couldn’t take to the court for the blockbuster semi-final with Swiss great Federer.

This development present Federer with an opportunity to battle 25-year-old Austrian Thiem, who is seeking his first title in one of the ATP’s prestigious Masters 1000 events.

Thiem, ranked eighth in the world, was rock-solid in a 7-6(3), 6-7(3), 6-4 victory over 14th-ranked Canadian Milos Raonic.

Thiem, who advanced to the semis on a walkover when Gael Monfils withdrew with a Achilles tendon inflammation, was locked-in from the start, firing 10 winners without an unforced error in the opening set.
