Federer rolls into Indian Wells fourth round

Federer rolls into Indian Wells fourth round Federer rolls into Indian Wells fourth round

Roger Federer made short work of Filip Krajinovic to reach the fourth round of the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells.

Federer, who had looked slightly off his game in his rain-disrupted third round match against Federico Delbonis, was his dominant self on Monday, winning 89 per cent of his first service points while cracking six aces to just one double fault.

Federer, who is the defending champion and trying to win a record sixth title in the California desert, was on the centre stadium for the third day in a row.

The world No 1 extended his unbeaten record this season to 14 matches. "So I'm very happy how things are turning out to be".

Elsewhere, US Open victor Sloane Stephens cruised past wild card Victoria Azarenka in straight sets 6-1, 7-5 in a second-round match that was postponed from Saturday night because of rain.

He said playing matches three days in a row doesn't faze him.

There are few players who could have dealt with Federer in the kind of form he showed Monday.

"At the Masters 1000s, when the format was different, it was the best-of-five-set finals in the finals".

That levelled the score at 30-30 and Wozniacki won two out of the next three points she needed to take the third set and the match in the $16 million joint WTA/ATP hardcourt tournament. After securing a fifth break, Federer served out in ruthless fashion against the deflated 26-year-old in their first meeting.

"I still think he can play much better than he did today", Federer said. The other victory came in Rotterdam.

The French seventh seed beat the Australian 7-5 6-4 in just under two hours.
