Miami Open: Federer sails through to fourth round

Rafael Nadal was unbelievable in 2008 Wimbledon final says Roger Federer

Before he takes off for his meeting with Medvedev, the World Number five, Roger Federer revealed his excitement to play on the clay surface month to Tennis Channel, where he will be making a return after three years.

But momentum swung in the fourth-seeded Federer's direction when he blasted a cross-court forehand victor to break Krajinovic's serve to take the closely fought first set.

Federer and his Serbian opponent exchanged breaks of serve early in the first set, with the 20-time grand slam victor taking a set-clinching break at 6-5.

Federer beat him twice past year but is already a fan.

The Swiss coasted after that, thanks to an overpowering serve that Krajinovic struggled to read.

He took an early break in the second set, for 2-0, before going on to serve out the match after just over 90 minutes on court.

The fourth seed came from a break down to win the opening set and went on to move into the last 16 with a 7-5 6-3 victory on Monday.

After dropping the first set, Federer broke Albot while leading 6-5 in the second with a backhand volley victor.

Halep got the better of Venus and made light work of her to book a place in the quarter-finals with a 6-3, 6-3 win.

He will meet Joao Sousa in the third round after the Portuguese 29-year-old defeated Steve Johnson 7-6 (6) 6-4. "I feel like I'm hitting the ball great", the sixth seed added.

He served 13 aces vs. Sousa and next will play Australian Jordan Thompson, who upset No. 24 seed Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria 7-5, 7-5.

In the women's draw, Bianca Andreescu, the 18-year-old Canadian sensation who won the title in Indian Wells, was forced to withdraw in the second set of her fourth round match with Estonia's Anett Kontaveit.

Czech Kvitova, whose knife-wielding attacker in 2016 - 33-year-old Radim Zondra - was sentenced to eight years in prison yesterday, will play Australian Ashleigh Barty today after beating France's Caroline Garcia 6-3, 6-3.
