  • INDIAN WELLS, Calif. — Roger Federer beat Kevin Anderson 7-5, 6-1 Thursday night in the quarterfinals of the BNP Paribas Open, where the Swiss star has yet to drop a set in four matches.
    A four-time Indian Wells champion, Federer will next play Alexandr Dolgopolov in the semifinals. Dolgopolov swept past Milos Raonic 6-3, 6-4.
    On the women's side, top-seeded Li Na beat Dominika Cibulkova 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 in a rematch of their Australian Open final and advanced to a semifinal against Flavia Pennetta, who defeated Sloane Stephens 6-4, 5-7, 6-4.
    Dolgopolov's win assured the Ukrainian of rising to a projected No. 23 in next week's ATP Tour rankings. Already, he has made the biggest jump in the top 50, moving up 26 spots since the end of last year to No. 31 before the tournament began.
