Federer wins, Djokovic out at Indian Wells

Federer wins, Djokovic out at Indian Wells

"I didn't serve too good today but overall I'm pleased".

Dimitrov, victor of the ATP World Tour Finals in 2017, lost the first set on a tie-break 7/4 but took the second 6-4 after breaking the 34-year-old on both of his first two service games.

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

Krajinovic had no answer for Federer's serve or relentless return game and ended up winning just 31 of the match's 93 points.

"To me, it's not that surprising", Federer said, as quoted by Sky Sports.

He said playing matches three days in a row doesn't faze him. "I think it was a good match".

His third-round opponent is Argentina's Leonardo Mayer, who had been scheduled to play Kei Nishikori in the second round before the world No. 25 withdrew through illness.

Google's crypto ban comes as a shock
Cryptocurrencies have exploded in popularity over the previous year thanks to a surge in the price of bitcoin at the end of 2017. Google confirmed today that it will ban advertisements for cryptocurrencies and related content from June this year.

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

Federer, a 20-time Grand Slam champion, has already won the Australian Open and Rotterdam Open this year.

Rain - a rarity in the desert - delayed the start of the match, with Federer cautious but restless to get play underway in front of a capacity crowd. Chardy has 10 career wins over top-10 players, but only one of those victories have come since the 2016 season.

Israeli Dudi Sela beat British 21st-seeded Briton Kyle Edmund 6-4 6-4 while Luxemburg's 24th seed Giles Muller was upset by Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert 6-3 7-5.

There were no such problems for Kevin Anderson or Tomas Berdych, who were straight-sets winners over Evgeny Donskoy and Max Marterer respectively, while Dominic Thiem saw off Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-2 3-6 6-3.

Spanish 11th seed Pablo Carreno Busta defeated Daniil Medvedev 6-1 7-5 but 13th-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut was dismantled 6-1 6-3 by 21-year-old Croatian Borna Coric.
