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.
