Nadal commented "I probably played a little bit worse today than yesterday", adding "but in general terms [it's] been a positive victory again".

Andreescu broke Muguruza at love and then served out the match after a deuce game, hitting consecutive forehand winners.

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

The 37-year-old Swiss will be up against a newcomer to the tournament quarterfinals, Poland's Hubert Hurkacz, who ousted 24th seed Denis Shapovalov of Canada 7-6 (3), 2-6, 6-3.

After cruising to a 6-1 6-4 win over the 22nd seed Kyle Edmund, Federer thanked Laver - and fellow great Pete Sampras - for watching along at the Californian tournament.

"He's changing directions all the time (with his serve) so it's really hard to read it".

Grylls admires Federer as a tennis player: "The two best matches I ever saw in tennis were his Australian Open 2017 final win over Rafa and his (2009) Wimbledon final win over (Andy) Roddick both epic five-setters".

Krajinovic will be a big underdog when he faces Spain's world number two Rafa Nadal, who crushed Argentine Diego Schwartzman 6-3 6-1 on the showcase court to reach the last 16.

Born in Canada, Andreescu first took up tennis at age 7 in Romania, where her parents worked. 2 has finally reached the quarter finals of ATP Indian Wells for the first time in three years.

Kecmanovic, who gained entry to the second round when fifth-seeded Kevin Anderson withdrew with an elbow injury, is in his first ATP quarter-final.

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

"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.

"I was relieved I got through that one", Federer told reporters after defeating Edmund.

Raonic sent down 12 aces in his 6-4 6-3 win over German Jan-Lennard Struff to set up a clash with lucky loser Miomir Kecmanovic, the Serbian teenager progressing when Yoshihito Nishioka retired after losing the first set 6-4.

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.

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 upsets weren't limited to the men's draw. Novak Djokovic and Naomi Osaka, the world's top-ranked players, lost in straight sets.
