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

No. 2 Alexander Peya and Bruno Soares defeated the Swiss stars 6-4, 6-1, halting a run in which Federer and Wawrinka beat the sixth- and fourth-seeded teams in addition to Ernests Gulbis and Milos Raonic.

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.
