Five-time Indian Wells winner Roger Federer (ATP 4) makes it clear that he is a very hot title candidate in this year's desert tournament. Even the Briton Kyle Edmund (ATP 23) could bring the Swiss only very rarely embarrassing. Federer won easily with 6: 1, 6: 4 and now meets in the quarterfinals on the pole Hubert Hurkacz (ATP 67).
Five consecutive game wins for Federer at the start
Federer proved as before against Wawrinka now also against Edmund, that he has found after the bumpy tournament opening against Peter Gojowczyk to his Indian Wells form. The Swiss initially did not give his opponent any chance.
Only at 0: 5 Edmund managed a first game win - of course, too late to give the passage a turn. He left shortly after less than half an hour playing time at the "Maestro".
The Swiss keep their nerves at Edmunds late break chances
In the second set, Kyle Edmund stabilized his performance a bit. His first two serve games he won smoothly and could keep up to 2: 2 on the scoreboard. Then, however, Federer grabbed again and took his third overall break of the game. Edmund then fought doggedly for the connection and earned himself in the further course of the set also four breakballs. However, Federer kept his nerve and successfully avoided letting his opponent go back into the match. After an hour and four minutes, he made his quarter-final participation perfect with the first match point.
Quarterfinal against the young Poland Hurkacz
There, the 37-year-old now gets to deal again with a much younger opponent. Pole Hubert Hurkacz (22 years old) won the Youngster duel against 19-year-old Canadian Denis Shapovalov in three sets and now tries to challenge Federer in the round of the last eight and at least delay his 101st title. However, if the 23-time Grand Slam champion continues to play in the shape of the last two rounds, it is not just his semi-final odds in Indian Wells that are extremely good.
