Indian Wells 2017: Nick Kyrgios withdraws from Roger Federer match

Nick Kyrgios Kyrgios won his first career meetings with Djokovic Nadal and Federer

"I played him before and I know what to expect", Kyrgios said.

"I didn't think it was going to be that possible, to be quite honest, because the court is more jumpy here or more rough, let's say, so it's hard to put the ball away".

The high-profile match-ups keep on coming for Kyrgios, who will face the victor of Rafael Nadal's clash with Australian Open champion Roger Federer.

Federer wins his quarter-final by walkover as a result, and will now face either World No. 5 Kei Nishikori or 17 seed Jack Sock, who will now play the first quarter-final after Kyrgios' withdrawal.

"I don't take this decision lightly, these are the matches we train for but I'm in no fit state to take to the court". You feel like you're just happy and fresh and I've tried to show that to the people, and then I've tried to translate that also to my game.

At just 21, Kyrgios is also the youngest player to have snared the scalps of Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka, though his success over Murray came previous year at the non-sanctioned Hopman Cup. I am serving really well - that is creating chances for me to put pressure on their service games.

Vesnina staved off six break points in the last game, closing out the 71-minute match with two forehand winners. The 15th-seeded Australian hit 14 aces, with his fastest serve clocking 141 miles per hour, and won 86 percent of his first serve points.

Nick Kyrgios is proving to be Novak Djokovic's nemesis on tour this year, again beating the former world number one in straight sets at Indian Wells.

For the second time in two weeks, the 16th-ranked Aussie manhandled the game's best returner following his 25-ace outburst toppling Djokovic in Acapulco, 7-6 (9), 7-5.

However, the inspired Kyrgios is a formidable obstacle of Federer. It will be only their second meeting since the first encounter at the 2015 Madrid Open when the temperamental Australian gets the better of the Swiss Master in a third-set tiebreaker.

The aptly-named "Quarterfinal of Death" should pop with life as the Australian Open champion faces Australia's most volatile player in a clash of generations and styles. It takes a lot to execute successfully: timing, visual acuity, strength and flexibility of wrist, maybe a narrow form of bravery.
