Federer defeated Juan Martin Del Potro in a three-set thriller to make it to the penultimate clash before reaching the finals of the BNP Paribas Masters. The Swiss star won the first set while losing the second set to the Argentine. However, he then made a comeback in the final set to win the match 6-3, 4-6, 6-3.
The victor on Saturday will face the winner of the second semi-final clash between Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer, scheduled for later in the day.
Federer has faced Djokovic 29 times, with the Swiss holding a 16-13 lead over his Saturday opponent. The pair have met in 11 grand slam fixtures and the World No 2 has won in five occasions. However, Djokovic holds a 3-2 lead over Federer in the last five previous meetings between the pair.
