INDIAN WELLS, Calif. -- Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka defeated Ernests Gulbis and Milos Raonic 7-6 (3), 7-6 (4) on Monday to advance to the quarterfinals at the BNP Paribas Open.

The Swiss duo's victory came after both players won singles matches earlier in the day. Federer beat Dmitry Tursunov 7-6 (7), 7-6 (2), and Wawrinka rolled past Andreas Seppi 6-0, 6-2. Federer meets Tommy Haas and Wawrinka faces Kevin Anderson in the fourth round on Wednesday. The winners of those two matches will play in the quarterfinals.

Federer seemed to enjoy his break between matches on Monday:

Of course, a "Federinka" victory is not complete without a selfie.

Federer and Wawrinka will play No. 4 Leander Paes and Radek Stepanek in the quarterfinals.
