Federer steams into Indian Wells quarter-finals

Indian Wells: Roger Federer beats Kyle Edmund to reach quarter-finals Federer, Nadal, steam into Indian Wells quarter-finals

The Swiss great, seeded fourth in his bid for a record sixth Indian Wells title, needed just 64 minutes to subdue 23rd-ranked Edmund.

"It's incredible what I've achieved the last couple months", Andreescu said in an on-court interview. "I think for me the plan worked".

What was unexpected was a piece of honesty.

Kecmanovic, ranked 130th in the world, had taken the first set against Yoshihito Nishioka 6-4 when the 74th-ranked Japanese retired because of injury.

"The Rocket and the Pistol. That's where I got my good feeling and my good tennis and also the good physical health back".

Federer's simple victory over Edmund was not to be taken lightly, even if it only took 63 minutes.

Edmund, who won the Indian Wells second-tier Challenger event last week, struggled on serve in the opening set.

Federer won 6-4, 6-4 in a match that saw his Polish opponent get his set of chances in the second set that he failed to capitalise.

Meanwhile, on the women's side of the draw, Switzerland's Belinda Bencic beat world number one Naomi Osaka 6-3, 6-1 to move into the quarter finals.

The top half was rocked by the upsets of top-ranked Novak Djokovic and No. 3 seed Alexander Zverev on Tuesday.

"The difference between players is not huge".

"It's true that for the last 10 years didn't happen very often".

"Probably played a little bit worse today than yesterday", Nadal said.

The big Russian edged John Isner 6-4, 7-6 (1) to advance to his first Indian Wells quarterfinal.

A day after world number one Novak Djokovic tumbled out of the third round, 19-year-old Miomir Kecmanovic kept the Serbian flag flying.

World number 113 Krajinovic was aiming to become the first qualifier in 16 years to make the last eight at this tournament, but he was simply outclassed by the 17-time major victor.

"It will be amusing that somebody other than Novak is still in", he said of his famous countryman.

Kecmanovic will square off with Canadian 13th seed Raonic for a spot in the semi-finals.

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