March 15, 2019 -- Indian Wells, CA

37-year old, Roger Federer, competed in his 83rd Masters 1000 Series Quarterfinal today in front of a packed crowd in the desert sun.

He faced the less experienced, Hubert Hurkacz in what seemed to be a routine match to progress to his 12th semifinals in Indian Wells.

Roger won 6-4, 6-4 and awaits the winner of the matchup between Rafael Nadal and Karen Khachanov.

"At this stage of the tournament, you have to bring your best game," Roger said. "I'm very excited to be in the semis here. Not that I didn't expect it, but it definitely went better than I thought it would."
