Roger Federer wins all-Swiss duel with Stan Wawrinka

Roger Federer wins all-Swiss duel with Stan Wawrinka

Neither Federer or Nadal have dropped a set in their three matches at Indian Wells, a tournament Federer has won five times and Nadal three.

"It will be amusing that somebody other than Novak is still in", Kecmanovic said in reference to top-ranked countryman Djokovic. Isner fought back in the second set after Karen took the helm in first one but neither player was able to take their chances.

Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer breezed past their fourth round opponents on Wednesday to move the two tennis legends one step closer to a semifinal matchup in the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells.

The 19-year-old Canadian, seeded 24th, took on Poland's Hubert Hurkacz, who socked sixth-seeded Kei Nishikori of Japan in the third round.

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

"I'm really happy about it, especially since I didn't really do anything before this", he said.

Thiem said putting 87 percent of his first serves in play was key in his first meeting with Karlovic.

UK Parliament votes to delay Brexit but rejects second referendum
The Brexit deadline is legally binding and can not be extended without the agreement of all other 27 European Union countries. Unless an agreement is made, Britain is still at legal default to depart from the bloc on March 29.

"I think that's also one of the reasons I'm still in the game", Federer said when asked about playing Nadal.

"I'm going to get a ticket because this is just nice", he said, joking about buying a lottery ticket.

Andreescu will face the victor of the match between Ukrainian Elina Svitolina and Czech Marketa Vondrousova in the semi-finals of the tournament.

In other fourth-round action, Milos Raonic served 12 aces and saved all three of Jan-Lennard Struff's break point opportunities to down the German 6-4 6-3.

"It's been a really positive time for Canadian tennis", Raonic said, "and it's been a real inspiration and joy for me to see the progress". It's just a matter of keeping improving, keep plugging away, and then he will make big results again. Maybe because of the conditions, [it was] windier out there today.

Krajinovic will be a big underdog when he faces Spain's world number two Rafa Nadal, who crushed Argentine Diego Schwartzman 6-3 6-1 on the showcase court to reach the last 16.

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.
