Tennis fans should be treated to two different, but entertaining, finals on Sunday at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells.

An epic battle is set for the final in the men's draw.  The women's final will have an unexpected participant challenging one of the favorites.

Flavia Pennetta upset top-seeded Li Na and earned a spot in the final against Agnieszka Radwanska on Sunday. Wilson Tennis captures one of Pennetta's victorious moments from the 7-6, 6-3 win.

Per Ben Rothenberg of The New York Times, Pennetta couldn't hide her excitement after the big win.

Radwanska defeated Simona Halep 6-3, 6-4 to put her signature on matters during Saturday's action. This tweet and image comes courtesy of Tennis TV:

The Pennetta-Radwanska final should be an excellent one. We'll see if Pennetta can have a major breakthrough by knocking off Radwanska. Here's a link to the women's bracket on WTA.com.

The men's final is far more historic and commercially appealing.

Long time rivals Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic will clash for the 33rd time in their illustrious careers.

Djokovic handled John Isner in three sets (7-5, 6-7 (2), 6-1) on Saturday to earn a spot in the final. Roger Federer had a much easier time dispatching Alexandr Dolgopolov. Fed trounced Dolgopolov 6-3, 6-1 to set up another meeting with Djokovic.

Here's a link to the updated bracket. It shows the paths that Federer and Djokovic have taken to Sunday's final.

The men's bout won't take place before 5 p.m. ET. The women's final will happen first, starting at 3 p.m. ET.

This will be the 33rd time the two men have played head to head. Federer owns a 17-15 edge over Djokovic in the semifinals at Dubai last month. Tennis View Magazine offers a bit more detail into the statistics of the rivalry:

Because Federer holds the advantage in career meetings and won their last match, Fed could be seen as the favorite to leave Indian Wells as the champion.

Never lacking for confidence, Federer said this about his game, per Sports Illustrated, prior to his win over Dolgopolov:

"There is a sense of calmness to my game right now. Also confidence. But also that grit and wanting-to-win-badly feeling is out there, which was hard to find at times last year. So now I got it all.”

He'll need every bit of it to make it two wins in a row over Djokovic. You can bet Djoker will bring even more intensity to the next chapter in this rivalry.

Who will be the men's and women's champions? Stay tuned for Sunday's action.
