Roger Federer cruises through to fourth round at Indian Wells

World number one Roger Federer made short work of Filip Krajinovic to reach the fourth round at Indian Wells.

In his first tournament since his return to the top of the ATP Rankings, the defending champion met Krajinovic for the first time on court.

Federer, though, was clearly not in the mood to get acquainted with the Serbian, demolishing the 25th seed 6-2 6-1 winner in just under an hour.

Jeremy Chardy now lies in wait for the 36-year-old, who beat fellow Frenchman Julien Benneteau in three sets.
