Indian Wells: World number three Stan Wawrinka rallied for 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7/4) victory over Japanese lucky loser Yoshihito Nishioka Wednesday to reach the ATP Indian Wells Masters quarter-finals.

Switzerland's Wawrinka, a three-time Grand Slam champion, labored for two hours and 13 minutes to get past the 70th-ranked Nishioka, who twice served for the match in the third set before succumbing in the tiebreaker.

Wawrinka next faces either eighth-seeded Austrian Dominic Thiem or 10th seeded Gael Monfils of France.
