Juan Martin del Potro sets up a last-eight meeting with Andy Murray thanks to a crushing 6-2 6-2 victory over Tommy Haas.

Juan Martin del Potro has steamrollered Tommy Haas in straight sets to reach the quarter-finals of the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells.

The Argentine took just one hour and six minutes to record a 6-1 6-2 victory, which sets up an enticing quarter-final match-up with Andy Murray.

Haas had no answer to Del Potro's power from the baseline and failed to take any of his three chances at break point.

The world number seven broke the 34-year-old five times on his way to a commanding win on Stadium 2.
