INDIAN WELLS, Calif. -- "Federinka" is finished at the BNP Paribas Open after Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka lost in the doubles semifinals on Friday.

Federer is still alive in the singles draw. He will meet Alexandr Dolgopolov in the semifinals on Saturday. Federer, ranked No. 8, clinched his return to the top five with a 7-5, 6-1 victory over Kevin Anderson in the quarterfinals on Thursday.

Peya and Soares will face No. 1 Bob and Mike Bryan in the final. The twins, who are the defending champions, defeated unseeded Americans John Isner and Sam Querrey 6-7 (4), 6-1, 10-7 in the semifinals on Thursday.
