Jack Draper Indian Wells: date and time of 4th round match after win over Andy Murray - how to watch in UK

Jack Draper to face Carlos Alcaraz in Indian Wells fourth round

Rising British tennis star Jack Draper has reached the fourth round of the BNP Paribas Open after beating Andy Murray in straight sets. Draper was on Centre Court as an 11-year-old when Murray won Wimbledon for the first time in 2013 and has since gone on to form a strong bond with the Scot.

After the match, which Draper won 7-6 (8-6)6-2, the 21-year-old Londoner said to BBC Sport: “If I was going to say one sporting person who has inspired me the most it would be Andy. To come off court with the win against Andy - I’ll never forget that moment. I’m very proud of myself. Beating Dan Evans, as well (in the previous round). Dan’s a fierce competitor, someone who I’ve looked up to. That gave me confidence to go out there tonight and think even though it’s a really tough mental challenge, I can do this.”

Draper will now prepare to face the world number two Carlos Alcaraz. Here is all you need to know ahead of their meet...
