Nadal-Federer in quarterfinal

INDIAN WELLS, California – Rafael Nadal will face Roger Federer in the BNP Paribas Open quarterfinals after coming back to beat Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis with a 4-6, 6-4, 7-5 in the fourth round Wednesday.

Federer earlier survived a three-set marathon of his own to defeat 18th-seeded Stanislas Wawrinka, 6-3, 6-7 (4), 7-5.

Maria Sharapova and top-ranked Novak Djokovic had yet to play their night matches after all four of the preceding matches on the main stadium court went three sets.

Gulbis was on a 13-match winning streak, having made his way through the qualifying rounds at Delray Beach, Florida, where he won the title, and at Indian Wells, where he won three main-draw matches, including two over seeded players.
