Federer, Nadal, steam into Indian Wells quarter-finals

Indian Wells: Roger Federer beats Kyle Edmund to reach quarter-finals

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

British number one Edmund booked his spot in the fourth round at the BNP Paribas Open with a straight-sets win against qualifier Radu Albot in Indian Wells.

"I think I can speak on behalf of all the players, it's always such a pleasure when the legends come out to watch the current generation play".

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.

Speaking of their first meeting, Federer admitted the windy conditions of the match were tough but said Edmund still had what it takes to achieve great things in the future.

She will next face Elina Svitolina, who clawed out a 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 victory over Marketa Vondrousova.

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

Three-time champion Nadal crushed Filip Krajinovic of Serbia 6-3, 6-4, while five-time champion Federer defeated Kyle Edmund of the United Kingdom 6-1, 6-4.

Federer will fight for a semi-final berth against Pole Hubert 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.

Kecmanovic became the first lucky loser to reach the last eight at Indian Wells since the ATP's Masters 1000 series launched in 1990.

"The previous days here in Indian Wells helped me a lot to get back to my top level physically and also to play good tennis again", Thiem said.

"Maybe because of the conditions".

Afterwards, in a clear indication of her confidence, Andreescu said: "For me, the sky's the limit".

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

Next up for Nadal is Karen Khachanov, who defeated John Isner 6-4 7-6 (7-1).

Kecmanovic got into the main draw when world No.6 Kevin Anderson withdrew before his opening match with an elbow injury.

In the evening, Gael Monfils stretched his best start to a season to 15-3 after dominating Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-0, 6-2.

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.
