    Los Angeles, USA, Mar 13 (efe-epa).- Spain's Feliciano Lopez on Wednesday reached the round of 16 of the Indian Wells Masters, the first tournament of the 2018 World Tour Masters 1000, after eliminating American Jack Sock 7-6 (6), 4-6, 6-4 in two hours and 26 minutes of play.

    Lopez is set to face the United States' Sam Querrey in the fourth round, after he beat India's Yuki Bhambri by 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-4.

    The 36-year-old from Toledo won the first set, but his rival took advantage of a break of serve to take the game to a tie-break.

    Sock was looking to return to the semifinals in California, where he lost to eventual champion Roger Federer last year.

    Lopez's best result at Indian Wells was when he reached the quarter-finals in 2015, when he lost to Andy Murray.
