Novak Djokovic's 22-match winning steak ended at the hands of an inspired Juan Martin del Potro, who beat the Serbian star 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 Saturday to reach the Indian Wells Masters final.

Djokovic had not lost a match since falling to Sam Querrey at the Paris Masters on October 31. His 17 wins this year included a run to a fourth Australian Open title and a triumph in Dubai.

In the final, Argentine seventh seed del Potro will face 11-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal.
