Highlights of Iga Swiatek against Marta Kostyuk in the semi-finals of Indian Wells

Sakkari fought off a Coco Gauff fightback to book a place in the final of the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells against top seed Swiatek.

Swiatek has enjoyed a serene path to the final, in which she has lost just 20 games. She is also a perfect 69-0 after taking the opening set in WTA 1000 events and 12-1 in matches this year.

Sakkari came into the tournament with a new coach in David Witt and has proceeded to rack up as many wins as she had all season coming in having won five matches in a row since her title run in Guadalajara.

Defending champion Alcaraz ended Jannik Sinner's winning streak to reach the men's singles final, where he will face last year's beaten finalist Daniil Medvedev following his semi-final victory over Tommy Paul.
