Roger Federer outclasses Jeremy Chardy at Indian Wells

Roger Federer outclasses Jeremy Chardy at Indian Wells

It will be a rematch of their Australian Open semi-final in January when Chung had to retire due to blistered feet.

Roger Federer is just one win away from retaining his world number one status after progressing to the quarter-finals at the BNP Paribas Open with a straight sets win over Jeremy Chardy on Wednesday. I'm really sorry to the fans who wanted to see this match. "Because that thing looked nasty and it takes some time to heal".

"It was hard conditions to play in today because of the wind", she said.

He will next face South Korea's Chung Hyeon after his 6-1 6-3 win over Uruguayan Pablo Cuevas.

"If I play the clay or not does not depend on Rafa or Novak or if they play or they don't play", Federer said.

Cuevas upped his performance to put some pressure on Chung's serve but he could not find a route back into the match and the youngster wrapped up victory in just 78 minutes.

Chung, who has been to the quarter-finals or beyond in five of his six events this season, added on facing Federer: 'He is playing really good this year so far, as well, so I don't know.

Federer's clash with Chung will start after 7.30am IST on March 16. Mobile and tablet users can watch the action live on the Sony Liv app. Laptop users can stream via Sony Liv's official website and also on the BNP Paribas' official website. He dropped just three serve points overall with those coming on his second serve.

It should be noted that it was only the fifth time that Federer has won a match without losing a first-serve point.

Unseeded Coric moves to the quarter-finals, where he will play red-hot South African Kevin Anderson who defeated Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (8/6).

In other fourth-round men's matches, No. 6 Juan Martin del Potro beat fellow Argentine Leonardo Mayer 3-6, 7-6 (7), 6-3; No. 18 Sam Querrey defeated No. 28 Feliciano Lopez of Spain 6-3, 6-4; Borna Coric of Croatia outlasted American Taylor Fritz 6-2, 6-7 (8), 6-4; and No. 31 Phillipp Kohlschreiber of Germany beat Pierre-Hughes Herbert of France 6-4, 7-6 (7).

World No.1 Simona Halep entered the semifinal by defeating Petra Martic on Wednesday.
