Raonic beat the 19-year-old Serb 6-3, 6-4 on Thursday to reach the semifinals and improve to 19-4 at Indian Wells since 2014.
Three seeded players withdrew before the tournament began, clearing the way for Kecmanovic to become a lucky loser and receive a first-round bye.

The beginning for Bianca wasn't that great as the youngster was trailing on a 0-3 scoreline against Svitolina as the Canadian was clearly struggling with nerves. "I just tried to play consistent, be aggressive when I had the first chance".
The teen's run is reminiscent of Naomi Osaka's path to last year's title.

Elina kicked off the match in the best possible way, breaking Bianca twice to open a 3-0 lead before the youngster found her range, rattling off four straight games to move 4-3 up with a backhand crosscourt victor in the seventh game.
Andreescu missed a match-point opportunity on Svitolina's serve, but then won the next game to finish it in dramatic fashion, fighting off three break points.
Andreescu showed signs of fatigue in the third set. Andy Bettles, Svitolina's coach, told his player "She's dying physically" during the break after the fifth game of the set.
Svitolina, the 2017 Toronto Rogers Cup champion, responded with a break to tie the third set at 3-3. "I'm definitely playing how I feel it, and it's going well so I'm not planning on changing that". A backhand down the line victor sent Belinda 3-2 up and she fired a service victor for a hold at 15 in game six and even a more significant advantage. A forehand return victor sent Bianca 4-3 ahead and she defended three break points in the following game to open a 5-3 advantage and move closer to the finish line.More news: British ex-soldier to be charged in Bloody Sunday killings
