Federer Breezes Into Fourth Round At Indian Wells

"I mean, not going to be too down about it", Stephens said.

Federer, the defending champion and five-time victor, needed just 58 minutes to wrap up a 6-2 6-1 victory.

After Krajinovic returned Federer's serve which was called long, the 36-year-old played a sliced backhand.

The world No.1 - who has a ideal 13-0 record this year - is the defending champion and is bidding for a sixth Indian Wells title. The Israeli only qualified for the contest as a lucky loser, while Edmund―appearing in his first match since the Australian Open―was widely backed as a dark horse to go deep into the tournament.

At one point he won 17 straight points en route to taking a 6-2, 3-0 lead, winning 10 of the final 11 games in the match. It was the fifth time in the last decade that a player ranked outside the top-100 has defeated Djokovic.

"I was grateful to be out on the court after surgery that quickly". Daniel plays next Argentinean tennis player Leonardo Mayer.

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.

In the next round he faces Jeremy Chardy, who beat fellow Frenchman Adrian Mannarino 7-5, 4-6, 6-1.

Stephens lost to Daria Kasatkina of Russian Federation 6-4, 6-3, and fell to 2-4 in matches this year.

In other third-round matches, No. 7 Caroline Garcia of France beat 26th-seeded Daria Gavrilova of Australia 7-5, 6-4; No. 10 Angelique Kerber of Germany defeated No. 24 Elena Vesnina of Russian Federation 7-5, 6-2; and American Danielle Collins continued her run with a 6-4, 6-4 win over fellow wild card Sofya Zhuk of Russian Federation.

Seventh seed Kevin Anderson took down Nicolas Kicker 7-6 (1) 7-6 (3) and South Korea's Chung Hyeon beat Tomas Berdych 6-4 6-4.
