The Russian advanced with an impressive victory over home favourite John Isner 6-4, 7-6.

Speaking of their first meeting, Federer admitted the conditions of the match were tough but said Edmund still had what it takes to achieve big results.

Miomir Kecmanovic, a 19-year-old Serb ranked 130th in the world, became the first lucky loser to reach the quarterfinals at Indian Wells since 1990, advancing when Yoshihito Nishioka retired in the second set.

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

Roger Federer of Switzerland returns a shot to Kyle Edmund of Great Britain during the BNP Paribas Open at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden on March 13, 2019 in Indian Wells, California.

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

The second-seeded Nadal is 5-0 against Khachanov, including a 5-7, 7-5, 7-6 (7), 7-6 (3) win in four hours, 23 minutes at the 2018 US Open.

"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".

The Pole made it through with a 7-6, 2-6, 6-3 win over Canada's up-and-coming left-hander Denis Shapovalov. "Kyle, the same thing".

RNZ understands the man jumped out of a van and was shouting political comments aimed at Mr Shaw personally. Shaw wasn't robbed, and the spokesman said it appeared to be an unprovoked attack.

"That's something really special and (I'm) just happy to be part of it". "Of course, playing the top guys is always a big pleasure, but most of the time they beat you", Kohlschreiber said in an on-court interview.

Monfils will take on No. 7 seed Dominic Thiem who knocked down giant Ivo Karlovic 6-4, 6-3.

The 13th seed will square off against France's Gael Monfils, a 6-0 6-2 victor over Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber, in the quarter-finals on Thursday.

"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.

"I was nervous, it's OK to admit", he said.

Djokovic's loss came on the same day that women's world number one Naomi Osaka saw her title defense hopes dashed, falling 6-3 6-1 to Belinda Bencic.

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.

The 130rd-ranked Kecmanovic only got a spot in the draw when Kevin Anderson withdrew.
