Jack Sock (17) vs. Roger Federer (9)

At the age of 35, Roger Federer continues to be one of the best players in the game. Against all expectations, Federer won his 18th Grand Slam title earlier this year in Melbourne and is now just two wins away from claiming his 5th career title in Indian Wells. Looking now at Roger’s campaign on this event, the Swiss couldn’t ask for an easier task in the quarterfinals since Nick Kyrgios decided to withdraw from the tournament due to illness. However, his appearance in the semifinals is fully deserved after his astonishing performance in the 4th round against Rafael Nadal.

Jack Sock continues his impressive run in Indian Wells with the world no.18 featuring a huge upset in the previous round against Kei Nishikori. This was definitely the biggest win on Sock’s career. Besides securing an unprecedented place in the semifinals of a Masters 1000 event, the American also recorded his first victory over a top 5 opponent. Even though Nishikori is one of the best defenders on the ATP World Tour, Jack won 75.00% of the points played at the net.

This will be the 3rd career meeting between these two players with Federer leading on the h2h by 2 – 0.

After Roger’s outstanding performance against Nadal, it’s impossible to go against the Swiss. Despite Sock’s improvements in recent months, the American shouldn’t present the required consistency to defeat the former world no.1. If you’re thinking about placing a parlay this weekend, then Federer’s betting odds is a great option for it. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a single play, our suggestion is for you to add Roger’s -1.5 Set Handicap to your betting picks.
