"I had some small chances in the second set".

Nadal is one of the greatest tennis players of all time, with 17 grand slam titles to his name - just three behind Roger Federer on 20.

"That's something really special and (I'm) just happy to be part of it".

At the tournament in the United States, which is a Masters 1000 event and widely considered as one of the biggest events outside of the four Grand Slams, 37-year-old Federer eased through with a 6-1, 6-4 win over Great Britain's Kyle Edmund.

The German punched the air in celebration after a video review confirmed that his forehand victor caught the line on match point to seal the upset victory in Indian Wells.

She will next face Elina Svitolina, who clawed out a 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 victory over Marketa Vondrousova.

"He's been around for so many years and he doesn't really get overwhelmed by the occasion of playing on center court", he told reporters. I was able to mix up my game, cover my serve, be unsafe on the return.

And should the Spaniard overcome Khachanov and his long-time rivals Roger Federer beat Pole Hubert Hurkacz, also 22, they will meet in a semi-final showdown on Saturday.

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.

"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.

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

I hope I can get there but I am not going to underestimate Hurkacz. Maybe because of the conditions, [it was] windier out there today.

Kecmanovic got into the main draw when world No.6 Kevin Anderson withdrew before his opening match with an elbow injury.

In other fourth-round action, hard-hitting Canadian Milos Raonic saved all three of Jan-Lennard Struff's break point opportunities to down the German 6-4 6-3.

He next will take on 13th-ranked Russian Karen Khachanov, who beat world number nine John Isner 6-4, 7-6 (7/1).

In the evening, Gael Monfils stretched his best start to a season to 15-3 after dominating Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-0, 6-2. Novak Djokovic and Naomi Osaka, the world's top-ranked players, lost in straight sets.
