2013 Indian Wells, Quarterfinal
Nadal wins 6-4, 6-2
In their first-ever quarterfinal meeting (and first meeting before a tourney semi since their first match in 2004), Nadal swept Federer, who was clearly not 100 percent. Federer, yet to make a tournament final in 2013, had tweaked his back against countryman Stan Wawrinka in the previous round. Nadal continued his march toward what he hoped was his first hard-court tourney win since 2010.
Nadal leads series 19-10.
