Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic cruised into the quarterfinals of the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells Wednesday after Wimbledon champion Andy Murray and Australian Open winner Stanislas Wawrinka both fell in the fourth round.In a tournament full of surprises, Federer and Djokovic struck a blow for the old world order with Federer beating Germany's Tommy Haas 6-4, 6-4 and Djokovic coming back to down Croatia's Marin Cilic 1-6, 6-2, 6-3 .Federer and Djokovic are the only players ranked in the world's top 10 to reach the quarterfinals after Wawrinka and Murray joined the big-name casualties when they both crashed to lower-ranked opponents on another day of upsets in the Californian desert.Murray was blown away by Canada's Milos Raonic, one of the biggest servers in men's tennis.Raonic blasted 15 aces past his bewildered opponent, who is one of the best returners in the game, and won a staggering 83 percent of points when he landed his first serve.Murray did break Raonic's serve in the opening set and again in the deciding third to lead 2-1 but lost the next four games in a row against the 1.96 meter tall Canadian.
