Federer Breezes Past Edmund As Laver Looks On

There will be two new ATP Masters 1000 quarter-finalists at the BNP Paribas Open – Serbia's Miomir Kecmanovic and Poland's Hubert Hurkacz.

But amidst the change, familiar faces remain. Five-time champion Roger Federer advanced to his 13th Indian Wells quarter-final on Wednesday afternoon 6-1, 6-4, taking advantage of a slow start from top Brit and 23rd seed Kyle Edmund in their first meeting.

The 37-year-old Federer will experience another first as he and Hurkacz will meet for the first time in the quarter-finals. The 22-year-old Pole, who competed at the 2018 Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan, beat #NextGenATP Canadian Denis Shapovalov 7-6(3), 2-6, 6-3.

Edmund, meanwhile, will want to have another go at the 27-time Masters 1000 champion. The Brit double faulted twice to start his first service game, and unfortunately for the 23-year-old, the nervy beginning was an omen.

Federer broke twice in the opening set, and Edmund failed to convert any of his three break chances to get back on serve in the third game. Federer pounded Edmund's backhand, and the Antwerp titlist was stuck trying to rally from the baseline with Federer.

As Rod Laver and tournament owner Larry Ellison looked on, Edmund settled into the match, but Federer saved four more break points in the second, going seven for seven for the match.
