Indian Wells: Federer dispatches Krajinovic to advance to fourth round

Roger Federer vs Filip Krajinovic LIVE

The world No 100, however, responded well and took the initiative with an early break before a Mannarino double fault handed Chardy, who plays at Patrick Mouratoglou's tennis academy, a second break of the final set before he served out for the win.

Djokovic bowed out to South Korean Chung Hyeon in the fourth round of the 2018 Australian Open.

On his return from right elbow surgery, Djokovic looked a pale shadow of his former self as he went down 7-6 (3) 4-6 6-1 to make a quick exit from a tournament he has won five times.

Federer, who has a record 20 Grand Slam singles titles, is making his 17th appearance in the California desert and is assured of remaining world No. 1 if he makes it to the semi-finals.

Federer improved to 65-5 since returning from a left knee injury a year ago with his third-round victory in a rare day match Monday.

In some of the other matches of the day, second seed and Australian Open runner-up Marin Cilic edged a tight first set and then raced through the second for a 7-5, 6-3 win over Marton Fucsovics.

Like during his 6-2 6-1 win over Filip Krajinovic in the last 32 at Indian Wells on Monday night when he made a decision to throw in a little exhibition of how much spin he can deploy with his backhand.

'I was grateful to be out on the court after surgery that quickly but at the same time just didn't feel good at all.

"When you do come back from injury or when you haven't played in a long time, it just takes extra effort. He's only going to get better from here", concluded the world number one.

Frenchman Gael Monfils survived a match point before beating big-serving American John Isner 6-7 (5) 7-6 (3) 7-5 in a contest that had only one break.

Meanwhile, Kei Nishikori pulled out ahead of his opening match due to illness. So it was definitely nerve-wracking kind of, but I was enjoying it so much out there and I was playing my best. I am on a good run right now and I want to maintain that.
