Federer has won the Swiss Indoors five times in the past eight years and his last success in the tournament came in 2011. Defending champion Juan Martin Del Potro has withdrawn from this year's ATP event, leaving the World No 2 with a chance to clinch the title for the sixth time on Sunday.

The Swiss tennis ace defeated Grigor Dimitrov in the quarter-finals in straight sets. The clash between Federer and the Bulgarian saw the former World No 1 win the first set on a tie breaker before taking the next set comfortably to seal the match. The final result was 7-6, 6-2.

Meanwhile, Karlovic defeated 33-year-old Benjamin Becker in the last eight of the ongoing tournament on Friday. The tall Croatian defeated his quarter-final opponent in straight sets 6-4, 6-4 to seal a place in the semi-finals.

A win on Saturday over Federer will give him a much needed boost to go on to win the Swiss Indoors for the first time on Sunday.
