Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal roll into quarters at Indian Wells

Nadal was up first in a rare 11am match, but the early start didn't bother the Spaniard who did lose his serve but really had no trouble against the Serb qualifier Filip Krajinovic in a 6-3, 6-4 win.

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.

But he was more than a match for 113th-ranked Krajinovic, breaking him early in each set and saving the only break point he faced.

Khachanov feels confident as he lost to Nadal just in four sets at the US Open: "I think it was one of the best matches from a year ago and in general, maybe, like, in terms of fight, spirit, intensity, the rallies, the atmosphere".

"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".

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

"Conditions are tough with the glare, and the jump of the ball it's sometimes hard to find the rhythm and timing".

He will next face Karen Khachanov, who got the better of John Isner 6-4 7-6 (7-1).

The 24-year-old, now ranked 23 in the world, won 84% of his first-serve points to triumph 6-3 6-3 in an hour and 14 minutes.

"He's also up and coming, so that's fun", Federer said of Hurkacz. "Happy the way I played".

Dominic Thiem defeated Ivo Karlovic 6-4, 6-3 and will play Gael Monfils, a 6-0, 6-2 victor of the late match against Philipp Kohlschreiber.

Thiem ended the run of 40-year-old Croatian Ivo Karlovic courtesy of a 6-4 6-3 victory.

"Amazing is an understatement", said Andreescu, who is playing her first season as a professional. "It was 11 days of good practice". According to William Hill, Federer is a 1/14 favorite to advance past Hurkacz, while Nadal (1/5) is believed to be in a slightly more competitive match.

Kecmanovic next plays 13th-seeded Canadian Milos Raonic, who beat Jan-Lennard Struff 6-4, 6-3.

Kecmanovic is the last teen left in the men's draw, after the departure of 19-year-old Shapovalov. The young Japanese had to stop at the start of the second due to a back injury.
