Helloooo everyone! It's semi-final time in Indian Wells, and tonight's first match should be a cracker! It's Roger Federer v Borna Coric, and I'll be taking you through all of the action as it happens. I'll be hoping for a Federer win to top off Ireland's match earlier ;)

Now now, Anna! I think you should just bask in the Irish glory and let Borna have his day! ;-)

I'm greedy ;)

One thing I am slightly regretting is deciding to make enchiladas at the same time as this match, but you can let me know how my multi-tasking is!

Right, enchiladas are in the oven covered with a generous layer of tin foil, and I am here in time for the walk-on. So, Federer is unbeaten this year, and is looking for his 6th title here in Indian Wells. Coric has been in fine form this tournament, and won a thriller against Kevin Anderson in the quarter-finals. Which way do we think this is going to go?

Apparently Coric has been practising aggressive returns, so Federer will have that to look forward to. I keep saying tonight but it is only 11am in Indian Wells, has Mr. Federer requested a day match? ;)

Here is the walk-on, and the warm-up is underway, but Sky haven't told us who's serving first. Do bear with!

Federer apparently, he'll serve first.

All the sun is making me very jealous, we've had snow today!

Federer is ready to serve, so off we go.

Coric is straight out of the blocks with the aggressive returning, but Federer sends a lovely forehand down the line. The line judge actually called that one out, but it was right on the line. Replay the point. Long return; 15-0. Lovely angle on the return from Coric, but he nets the follow-up; 30-0. Coric nets again; 40-0. Coric sends a forehand long, and that's the hold for Federer.

We've had a couple of plane fly-by happenings, and I'm not sure the players are big fans. Lovely forehand winner from Coric; 15-0. Federer pulling Coric from side to side, and he nets a backhand; 15-all. Double fault...15-30. Oooh big first serve doing the trick there; 30-all.
