Indian Wells: Roger Federer beats Kyle Edmund to reach quarter-finals

Roger Federer

Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer breezed past their fourth round opponents on Wednesday to move the two tennis legends one step closer to a semifinal matchup in the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells.

World No. 2 Nadal overpowered Serbian qualifier Filip Krajinovic 6-3, 6-4 to book his quarter-final berth in one hour and 26 minutes.

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

Standing in the way to her first Indian Wells final is Ukraine's sixth seed Elina Svitolina, who managed a comeback victory 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 over Czech Marketa Vondrousova later on Wednesday. "Happy the way I played".

Speaking of their first meeting, Federer admitted the windy conditions of the match were tough but said Edmund still had what it takes to achieve great things in the future.

Theresa May loses Brexit vote
The vote came after May's plan to exit the European Union was also rejected with only 17 days before the Brexit due date. Mrs May agreed but insisted her deal is a "good deal" and she wants the United Kingdom to leave with a good deal.


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

Federer will face Hubert Hurkacz in the quarters after the Pole defeated Denis Shapovalov in 3 sets.

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

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.

Meanwhile, Miomir Kecmanovic, a 19-year-old Serb ranked world No.130, to the last eight when Yoshihito Nishioka of Japan retired after he losing the first set 6-4.

Huawei has backup Android plan
There is also the matter of processors for its laptops, as its Matebooks are powered by the US-made Intel processors. DOJ filed criminal charges against Huawei for alleged trade secret theft, bank fraud, and obstruction of justice.


2016 finalist Milos Raonic kept his hopes of returning to a fourth Indian Wells semifinal by upending Jan-Lennard Struff 6-4, 6-3.

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.

Next up for Nadal is Russian 12th seed Karen Khachanov who accounted for American eighth seed John Isner 6-4 7-6 (7-1).

The 13 seed will square off against either France's Gael Monfils or Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber in the quarter-finals on Thursday. Naomi Osaka, the world's top-ranked woman, also lost in straight sets a day earlier.
