Federer wins 'Swiss battle' to reach fourth round at Indian Wells

Federer needed barely an hour to take his record to 22-3 over Wawrinka

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. Muguruza said the overall quality of Andreescu's game was just too much.

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. I think he probably struggled throughout a little bit.

"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.

At the tournament in the United States, which is a Masters 1000 event and widely considered as one of the biggest events outside of the four Grand Slams, 37-year-old Federer eased through with a 6-1, 6-4 win over Great Britain's Kyle Edmund.

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

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.

Three-time champion Rafael Nadal and five-time champion Roger Federer both earned a berth in the quarterfinals at the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells on Wednesday, one step away from another possible classic clash in the semis.

It is the second time the Senate has approved a measure that would curb US military involvement in Yemen. "This is historic. That change yielded a tangible outcome in a Senate vote to end US support for the Yemen war late in the last Congress .

World number four Roger Federer needed under an hour to defeat fellow Swiss Stan Wawrinka 6-3 6-4 and will next face Briton Kyle Edmund, who defeated Radu Albot in straight sets earlier in the day.

Born in Canada, Andreescu first took up tennis at age 7 in Romania, where her parents worked.

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

Nadal will now face Karen Khachanov in the quarterfinals.

Krajinovic hadn't dropped a set in winning his first three main-draw matches after two wins in qualifying but he was outclassed by Nadal in their one hour and 26 minute encounter.

The 13 seed will square off against either France's Gael Monfils or Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber in the quarter-finals on Thursday.
