Federer breezes into fourth round at Indian Wells

By Sports Desk March 12, 2018

Roger Federer made short work of Filip Krajinovic as he booked his place in the fourth round at Indian Wells with a 6-2 6-1 victory on Monday.

Federer - the defending champion and a five-time winner of this event

- required less than an hour on Stadium 1 to get the better of the Serbian world number 28.

Krajinovic reacted well to Federer's first blow, breaking back immediately after going 2-0 down at the beginning of the match.

However, after levelling up at 2-2, Federer hurried to a one-set lead in the next four games, winning three of them to love.

Another love game kicked off the second set and Federer was 3-0 up before Krajinovic managed to momentarily stem the tide.

But it was only a brief reprieve for Krajinovic, as the world number one romped into the next round in emphatic fashion.

Federer will now meet Jeremy Chardy for a place in the quarter-finals.
