INDIAN WELLS, March 15 ― World number eight Dominic Thiem advanced to the ATP Indian Wells Masters semi-finals yesterday when scheduled quarter-final opponent Gael Monfils withdrew with injury.

France's Monfils pulled out with a left Achilles tendon injury shortly before the match was to start, taking the court to tell the crowd he didn't feel he could play at 100 percent.
