INDIAN WELLS, California (AP) -- Canada's Milos Raonic used his big serve to earn a 4-6, 7-5, 6-3 victory over Andy Murray in the fourth round of the BNP Paribas Open on Wednesday.

Raonic fired 15 aces and held triple match point when he ripped a crosscourt forehand to close out the win after breaking Murray three times in the final set.

Murray, ranked sixth in the world, struggled in all three of his matches at Indian Wells. He rallied to beat Lukas Rosol and Jiri Vesely, but couldn't overcome Raonic's power.

Playing his first tournament since injuring his left ankle at the Australian Open in January, Raonic hadn't beaten someone in the top 10 since defeating then-No. 6 Tomas Berdych in the Bangkok final in September.
