Carlos Alcaraz targets his first ever win over Felix Auger-Aliassime when they lock horns in the Indian Wells Masters quarter-finals.

The Spaniard has never beaten the Canadian in four previous attempts, a record he must change to maintain his quest to return to world number one this weekend.

Alcaraz surrendered top spot in the ATP rankings to Novak Djokovic after missing the Australian Open, but will reclaim it by lifting his third ATP Masters 1000 title.

A semi-finalist here 12 months ago, the 19-year-old is yet to drop a set and will be fresher than anticipated following Jack Draper’s retirement through injury in their last-16 encounter.

Alcaraz had already seen off Thanasi Kokkinakis 6-3, 6-3 and Tallon Griekspoor 7-6(4), 6-3, before advancing at 6-2, 2-0 to the good against the rising British star.

Now just three wins away from his second title of the season, having triumphed in Buenos Aires, he must claim a maiden victory over Auger-Aliassime.

A semi-finalist in Doha, the Canadian had never previously progressed beyond round three at Indian Wells.

However, he has stopped the rot this fortnight. The eighth seed overcame Pedro Martinez 7-6(5), 6-4 and Francisco Cerundolo 7-5, 6-4, before battling past Tommy Paul 3-6, 6-3, 7-6(6).

The winner of this match will play either Taylor Fritz or Jannik Sinner in the Indian Wells Masters semi-finals.

Play gets underway at around 1am GMT on Friday and will be contested over the best of three sets in California.
