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".

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.
