Roger Federer will always be the GOAT whatever Djokovic, Nadal do - Grylls

Tennis BNP Paribas Open Day 9

Following both their victories, the two champions now increased their odds to face each other in the semifinals to fill fans with excitement.

Second seed Rafael Nadal also reached the last eight with a straightforward 6-3 6-4 victory over Filip Krajinovic. Though Nadal was not fully-satisfied with his performance in the match and said, "I probably played a little bit worse today than yesterday".

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

Philipp Kohlschreiber stunned Novak Djokovic 6-4 6-4 in the third round of the BNP Paribas Open on Tuesday, sending the world number one tumbling out of a tournament he had won five times.

"I'm really happy about it, especially since I didn't really do anything before this", said Kecmanovic, who will take on Canada's 13th-seeded Milos Raonic in the quarters.

His rival in the quarterfinals will be Russian Karen Khachanov who beat American John Isner 6-4 and 7-6 on Wednesday.

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. According to William Hill, Federer is a 1/14 favorite to advance past Hurkacz, while Nadal (1/5) is believed to be in a slightly more competitive match.

The New Zealand attack was unleashed at lunchtime local time on Friday, when mosques were full of worshippers. On Friday morning, terrorists attacked two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand and killed 49 people.

"I hope I can get there", Federer said, "but I'm not going to underestimate Hubert".

Awaiting Raonic in today's quarterfinals is 19-year-old Miomir Kecmanovic who earned a retirement from Yoshihito Nishioka.

Kecmanovic became the first lucky loser to reach the quarter-finals since the tournament achieved Masters 1000 status in 1990. The 27-year-old Serb got into the main draw when Kevin Anderson withdrew before his opening match with an elbow injury. However, the 37-year-old Federer has been resurgent in recent years, winning the last five matches between the two - all five of which took place on hard courts. Thiem said putting 87 percent of his first serves in play was key in his first meeting with Karlovic.

"I think that's also one of the reasons I'm still in the game", Federer said when asked about playing Nadal.

"I felt pretty confident on my own service games".

In their first meeting, Federer jumped out quickly up 4-0 and never looked back rolling to a 6-1, 6-4 win.
