Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer cruise as Novak Djokovic departs

Roger Federer I am not overly panicky in the big moments

World number two Nadal stayed on track to improve that number as he swept past Argentine Diego Schwartzman 6-3, 6-1 to reach the last 16. Both Federer and Nadal used their voice to insist that if there is to be a change, players must be consulted with, something that they say wasn't done.

He broke back as Fratangelo served for the set to knot it at 5-5, and then raced to a 4-1 lead in the tiebreaker.

After an action-packed day eight that saw the number three ranked player in the world, Alexander Zverev, fall to the hands of Jan-Lennard Struff, we move onto a star-studded day nine at the Indian Wells Masters.

Tenth-seeded Croatian Marin Cilic downed Serbian Dusan Lajovic, 6-3, 6-4 to book a meeting with 19-year-old Canadian Denis Shapovalov, the 24th seed who beat American Steve Johnson, 6-3, 6-4.

The victor of that match will take on France's Gael Monfils, who sped past Spain's Albert Ramos-Vinolas 6-0, 6-3 on Monday.

According to Peter Bodo in ESPN, "The disgruntled players basically feel that Kermode sides too often with the tournament reps and their desires" and want "more money and more job opportunities for more players".

In other early matches, sixth-seeded Kei Nishikori of Japan survived a scare in a 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (7/4) victory over France's Adrian Mannarino.

South Korea to pay more toward US troop presence
Trump and Kim met last week in Vietnam in a summit meant to reach an agreement on North Korean denuclearization. He said it was impossible to know if North Korea was preparing a military missile or a space rocket.

"It's unbelievable", Auger-Aliassime said. I had two good wins, so everything came together... I was only one break down after that.

"He's been around for so many years and he doesn't really get overwhelmed by the occasion of playing on center court", he told reporters.

"Following recent comments, coverage and speculation, the three Player Board representatives have made a decision to clarify a few matters related to the roles of the Player Board representatives, the Player Council and the Council's president in the President / Chairman vote taken last week", the statement begins. "I can be happy with myself for that".

The victor will then have to face either Shapovalov or Hubert Hurkacz in the quarters, after each young player upset the odds.

Nadal and Federer were untroubled in comfortable third-round wins over Diego Schwartzman and Stan Wawrinka respectively on Tuesday.

Federer said: "It is important to know where the Tour is going, with whom and how". Stats against each other are really, really not in my favor. It's pending. But it's definitely interesting times, I'd like to call it, not bad times in our sport. think it's maybe also a bit of a transition time. "He's proven he can win against top guys".

Now, back on the same stage, they were about to play one another for the 25th time-one of Federer's most played opponents after Nadal and Djokovic, and up there in sheer numbers with Andy Roddick, Lleyton Hewitt, Juan Martin del Potro and Andy Murray.
