Roger Federer had a clear path to the Indian Wells final, always winning straight sets matches. The Swiss player defeated Hubert Hurkacz 6-4 6-4 in the quarter-finals, always being under control. In a press conference, the Swiss said: "I think I feel good, you know, playing matches now.
Not I haven't in the past, but I think it was another one of those matches where, you know, I think I don't need too many chances to break. I got clear playing patterns. I'm holding my serve comfortably. I'm in a good place mentally when I go into my service games. I think it showed this week thus far, you know. So I hope I can keep that up."
