Federer, Wawrinka pull double duty in Indian Wells

Swiss duo Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka reached the quarter-finals of the BNP Paribas Open on Monday in Indian Wells with a 7-6(3), 7-6(4) victory over Ernests Gulbis and Milos Raonic. Both Federer and Wawrinka had reached the singles fourth round earlier in the day.

Federer and Wawrinka are pairing up at an ATP World Tour event for the first time since reaching the Indian Wells final three years ago (l. to Dolgopolov/Malisse). The 2008 Olympic gold medalists edged first-time pairing Gulbis and Raonic in 87 minutes, setting a clash with fourth seeds Leander Paes and Radek Stepanek, who defeated Jonathan Erlich and Richard Gasquet 6-3, 7-5.
