FEDERER SHOWS NO MERCY

It was a routine day for Federer, who saw off his Serbian opponent 6-2 6-1 on Stadium 1.

A five-time winner at Indian Wells, Federer needed less than an hour to crush Krajinovic.

Krajinovic dug deep early, overcoming a 2-0 deficit to level things up but it was one-way traffic from that point as Federer hurried to a one-set lead in the next four games – winning three of them to love.

Federer wasted no time in the second set, sailing in the fourth round where he will face Jeremy Chardy.

On Krajinovic, Federer said: "I still think he can play much better than he did today. Maybe it was because it was the first time he ever played against me."
