Federer Beats Hurkacz at Indian Wells Masters - Wins in Straight Sets

Federer beat British No 1 Kyle Edmund in straight sets last night in what was also their maiden clash.

Meanwhile, Miomir Kecmanovic, a 19-year-old Serb ranked world No.130, to the last eight when Yoshihito Nishioka of Japan retired after he losing the first set 6-4.

"Him and Pete have such better nicknames than me, that's the thing I'm most jealous about", Federer said.

Federer needed just over an hour to dispatch Briton Kyle Edmund 6-1 6-4 in their first career meeting and reach the quarter-finals on a sunny and breezy day in Indian Wells.

Nadal said his performance on a windy stadium court wasn't as good as his 6-3, 6-1 third-round win over Argentine Diego Schwartzman.

Federer will face Hubert Hurkacz, a 22-year-old from Poland whom he has never played before, in his quarterfinal match.

Thiem said putting 87 percent of his first serves in play was key in his first meeting with Karlovic. "I think he's the best athlete we have on tour". "I hope I can get there, but I am not going to underestimate Hurkacz".

"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".

Standing in the way to her first Indian Wells final is Ukraine's sixth seed Elina Svitolina, who managed a comeback victory 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 over Czech Marketa Vondrousova later on Wednesday. It's just a matter of keeping improving, keep plugging away, and then he will make big results again. "Maybe because of the conditions".

Federer will face Hurkacz for the first time in the quarterfinals.
