Nick Kyrgios withdraws from anticipated Indian Wells clash with Roger Federer

The two superstars hadn't played each other before the quarterfinals of an event since 2004 when they met in the third round at Miami.

The 21-year-old stunned world number two Novak Djokovic to reach the last eight, becoming the first player to beat the Serbian at the tournament since 2013.

TV Channel: Hub Sports will provide live TV coverage in Singapore. It marked the first time Federer had recorded three consecutive wins over the Spaniard.

Roger Federer defeated Rafael Nadal 6-2, 6-3 at the BNP Paribas Open on Wednesday in a fourth-round match that saw the longtime rivals meeting much earlier in a tournament than usual. The Swiss then took a 4-1 lead before sealing the set and continued to press in the second, keeping Nadal on his heels.

"After a restless night of being sick I have nothing left and to play a great champion like Roger, I need to be at my best to have a chance". "It felt good to back it up again".

A break in the first game of the match was enough to give Kyrgios the opening set.

In a lengthy statement the Australian tennis star revealed he is struggling with possible food poisoning. An oddity of the rankings had them and Djokovic - with 44 Grand Slam titles among the three of them - all grouped in the same quarter of the draw.

"I'm sorry to the fans that I'm unable to take to the court but I have to put my health first".

Was it something you ate Nick? "His second serve, if you think you're going to have a look at it, you don't, because he goes for it as well".
