Roger Federer has received a walkover to the finals of the BNP Paribas Open.

It comes after Rafael Nadal withdrew from their semi-final clash with a right knee injury.

The Spaniard had received treatment during his quarter-final win over Karen Khachanov on Friday.

Federer will now face Dominic Thiem in Sunday's finale after the Austrian beat Canada's Milos Raonic in a three-set epic.
