Nadal, Federer cruise into quarterfinals at Indian Wells

  • Indian Wells Federer Nadal

The 20th-seeded Spaniard called for her coach trailing 4-1 in the second set.

If Nadal won his next match of Indian Wells 2019 then he would get a chance to perform against Swiss superstar and five-time Indian Wells title victor Roger Federer in the semifinals.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion came through 6-3 6-4 for his sixth straight win over Wawrinka, setting up a match with Britain's Kyle Edmund.

The German punched the air in celebration after a video review confirmed that his forehand victor caught the line on match point to seal the upset victory in Indian Wells.

The victor of that match will face either 18th-seeded Frenchman Gael Monfils or unseeded German Philipp Kohlschreiber - who stunned world number one Novak Djokovic 6-4, 6-4 on Tuesday.

Nadal, meanwhile, himself a 17-time Grand Slam champion and the current world number four, beat Serbia's Filip Krajinovic 6-3, 6-4 in one hour and 26 minutes.

To set up a possible clash with Nadal, Federer must get past Hubert Hurkacz, the Pole continuing his surprise run with an upset 7-6 (7-3) 2-6 6-3 win over 24th seed Denis Shapovalov.

I hope I can get there but I am not going to underestimate Hurkacz. "It's one of these victories today I'm really proud of", Nadal told reporters, declining to absolutely guarantee that he would be okay to play on Saturday.

However, the deal can't technically become official until the start of the new league season on Wednesday. It appeared that Parker was on the outs with former Dolphins head coach Adam Gase and his coaching staff.


"I think that's also one of the reasons I'm still in the game Hopefully when I play the top guys I am ready for it. It's small gaps", Nadal said about the upsets.

He became the first lucky loser to reach the quarterfinals since the tournament achieved Masters 1000 status in 1990.

"It will be amusing that somebody other than Novak is still in", Kecmanovic said of top-ranked Djokovic, his famous countryman who was upset on Tuesday. Maybe because of the conditions, [it was] windier out there today.

Nishioka retired after losing the first set 6-4, having first sought treatment on court.

The world number two will face Karen Khachanov in the quarters, after the Russian saw off John Isner of the United States, 6-4, 7-6 (1).

The 13th seed will square off against France's Gael Monfils, a 6-0 6-2 victor over Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber, in the quarter-finals on Thursday.

Raonic will be Kecmanovic's next opponent after the big-serving 13th seed accounted for German Jan-Lennard Struff 6-4 6-3.
