A resurgent Rafael Nadal defeated Tomas Berdych 6-4, 7-5 on Saturday to reach the final of the Indian Wells Masters.
Nadal has now reached the final in four straight tournaments since returning last month from a seven-month injury absence.
In Sunday's final he could find Novak Djokovic across the net. The world No. 1, riding a 22-match winning streak dating back to October 31, was facing Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro in the other semi-final.
