Roger Federer is into the Indian Wells Semi Finals without hitting a ball after Nick Kyrgios withdrew due to suspected food poisoning. The Aussie announced he wouldn't be able to play on Twitter two hours before play was scheduled to start:
So good news or bad news? Impossible to say really, it means he'll have had two days off so great from the energy perspective, but it's not like he's spent much time on the court this tournament so another match might have helped.
Next up will either be Kei Nishikori or Jack Sock who also play today. Nishikori is the big favourite ahead of that one and he pushed Roger to five sets in Melbourne so he'll be a tough opponent on Saturday should they meet.
What do you guys think? Is the withdrawal good or bad for Fed? Let me know in the comments.
