Quickly before getting to an action packed Friday at Indian Wells, I would like to direct everyone’s attention toward the efforts being pushed hard here on my site for helping the earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan.

Now onto the tennis. Today’s action included a double dosage of Federer and a Federer-Nadal match-up, in doubles.
An all Swiss quarterfinal was decided in just over an hour as Roger won in straight sets, 6-3 6-4, winning 90% of points on his first serve. He will face Novak Djokovic in the semifinals as Nole routed Richard Gasquet 6-2 6-4. The two are playing for the world #2 ranking.
Moving to the doubles, as @stanwawrinka tweeted just a while ago, it was high quality doubles tonight. Federer and Wawrinka did it again! This time they played just amazing tennis as they defeated Rafa Nadal and partner Marc Lopez 7-5 6-3. The 2008 Gold Medalists will face off against Dolgopolov and Malisse in the final tomorrow (not before 4:00pm).
Watch some of the highlights late in the match here:
