Alexander Zverev vs Taylor Fritz: Preview
Alexander Zverev qualifies for his 10th quarter-final match of the season and his 1st at the Indian Wells as the German overcomes French veteran Gael Monfils winning the match 6-1, 6-3 quite comfortably.

Looking at these numbers, their recent form and past few performances, it looks like Alexander Zverev will be the one heading into the semis but it will be a tough battle as Fritz will be high on confidence and has also played some great tennis this week in tricky conditions.
