Stefanos Tsitsipas qualifies for his 14th quarter-final appearance of the season and his first at the Indian Wells as the Greek overcomes Alex de Minaur 6-7(3) 7-6(3) 6-2 in a thrilling fashion after having been 2 points away from what looked like a certain win for Minaur. After a straight-set win in the 2nd round, Stef has won both of his 3rd and 4th round clashes in 3-sets.

Nikoloz Basilashivili makes it to his 8th quarter-final of the season and similar to Stef, his first last-8 qualification at the Indian Wells.
