French Open champ Stan Wawrinka reached the Indian Wells fourth round while world No. 2 Andy Murray suffered a shock third-round exit at the hands of claycourt specialist Federico Delbonis Monday. Wawrinka toppled Andrey Kuznetsov 6-4, 7-6 (5) in the third round of the ATP and WTA hardcourt tournament and two-time Grand Slam winner Murray lost 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (3) to 53rd ranked Argentinian Delbonis.Wawrinka, who turns 31 later this month, has won two titles this year in Chennai and Dubai but has never made it past the quarterfinals in Indian Wells, one of the biggest events on the tennis calendar outside of the four Grand Slams.Murray's exit left things wide open in the bottom half of the men's draw, where Wawrinka, Richard Gasquet, Marin Cilic, Milos Raonic and Tomas Berdych all advanced.
