Federer seeking 6th title at Indian Wells against Del Potro

Roger Federer was on the ropes, down two breaks in the second set and another one in the third. Borna Coric thought he was close to toppling the world's top-ranked player.

Not so fast.

Federer rallied for a 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 victory in the BNP Paribas Open semifinals on Saturday, extending his career-best start to 17-0 and giving him a chance to win his record sixth title.

"I went for my shots. I was not waiting. I made the right choices all the time," Coric said. "He was just a better player in those specific moments. At the end, he just got through."


"I should have lost a match," Federer said.

He will meet No. 6...
