That includes a straight sets win at Indian Wells in 2017.

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.

A five-time champion at Indian Wells, Federer's first meeting with Kyle Edmund was straightforward, claiming a 6-1 6-4 win.

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

"I'm really happy about it, especially since I didn't really do anything before this", said Kecmanovic, who will take on Canada's 13th-seeded Milos Raonic in the quarters.

Rafael Nadal defeated qualifier Filip Krajinovic 6-3, 6-4 and remains on track for a potential semifinal against five-time champion Roger Federer in the bottom half of the draw.

In another upset earlier, Pole Hubert Hurkacz fired 10 aces en route to a 4-6 6-4 6-3 win over world number seven Kei Nishikori of Japan to reach the fourth round.

I hope I can get there but I am not going to underestimate Hurkacz.

Nadal commented "I probably played a little bit worse today than yesterday", adding "but in general terms [it's] been a positive victory again". "It's small gaps", Nadal said about the upsets. 2 has finally reached the quarter finals of ATP Indian Wells for the first time in three years.

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", Kecmanovic said of top-ranked Djokovic, his famous countryman who was upset on Tuesday.

His rival in the quarterfinals will be Russian Karen Khachanov who beat American John Isner 6-4 and 7-6 on Wednesday.

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.

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

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

After a day of upsets which saw both world number ones, Novak Djokovic and Naomi Osaka, exit the singles, things went largely to plan at the Indian Wells Masters in California today.
