Thiem will face Gael Monfils, who produced a fine display to thrash Novak Djokovic's conqueror Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-0 6-2 in under an hour. He will next take on 13th-ranked Russian Karen Khachanov, who beat world No. 9 John Isner 6-4, 7-6 (7/1).

The Swiss, a five-time champion in California, eased past Edmund 6-1 6-4 in just over an hour.

"Him and Pete have such better nicknames than me, that's the thing I'm most jealous about", Federer said. "I hope I can get there, but I am not going to underestimate Hurkacz".

Nadal, who lifted the Indian Wells trophy in 2007, 2008 and 2013, is in the last eight for the first time in three years after missing last year's edition, skipping both Indian Wells and the Miami Masters with a hip injury.

"Conditions are tough with the glare, and the jump of the ball it's sometimes hard to find the rhythm and timing". "Happy the way I played".

The 24-year-old, now ranked 23 in the world, won 84% of his first-serve points to triumph 6-3 6-3 in an hour and 14 minutes.

That leaves two of the top players of all time just one step away from a semifinal encounter that could be the most exciting match of the tournament.

Andreescu will get a shot at another top-10 player in the semi-finals, after sixth-ranked Elina Svitolina clawed out a 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 victory over another red-hot teen - Marketa Vondrousova of Czech Republic.

Afterwards, in a clear indication of her confidence, Andreescu said: "For me, the sky's the limit".

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 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. Naomi Osaka, the world's top-ranked woman, also lost in straight sets a day earlier.

Kecmanovic is the last teen left in the men's draw, after the departure of 19-year-old Shapovalov.
