Roger Federer boy band returns new and improved, with Novak Djokovic cameo

Wawrinka will play four-time Indian Wells champion Roger Federer or American Jack Sock in Sunday's final.

However, sickness forced him to pull out of a clash with Australian Open champion Federer on Friday. "I think there were too many unforced errors and I wasn't playing aggressive enough to get more chances".

Having beaten Sock twice past year and not having dropped a set yet in the ongoing tournament, Federer is favourite to reach his seventh final at Indian Wells.

But playing tennis was the furthest thing from their minds during this hilarious rendition of the Chicago tune.

Federer defeated his long time rival 6-2 6-3 in a contest that lasted for 68 minutes to advance to the last eight of the tournament.

Sock had no such problems and he hit the mark right at the start of deciding third set by breaking Nishikori in the opening game as the world number five struggled to find the range on his usually pinpoint groundstrokes.

"These are the matches we train for but I'm in no fit state to take to the court". Kyrgios had been due to face Federer after knocking out Novak Djokovic in the last 16 on Wednesday. I'm sorry to the fans but I have to put my health first and I hope you understand.

"I will definitely be back". However, his 24-year-old opponent has been in good form as well having won two titles already (Delray Beach and Auckland) and has broken into the top-20 of ATP Rankings for the first time in his career.

Sock took an early 3-1 lead in the breaker as he looked to push the match towards a decider, but Federer stormed back to win six of the next seven points to seal his place in a seventh Indian Wells final.

Instead, the crowd was treated to an exhibition singles match between Vasek Pospisil and tournament director Tommy Haas.
