Federer wary of Medvedev after Miami victory

May JohnsonMar 28, 2019

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 was stunned by Thanasi Kokkinakis in his opening match of the Miami Open a year ago and another early exit was beckoning when he dropped the first set on Saturday.

Roger Federer briefly seemed headed for the exit but instead advanced to the third round by rallying past qualifier Radu Albot 4-6, 7-5, 6-3.

American Frances Tiafoe battled back to defeat Spain's David Ferrer 5-7 6-3 6-3 to earn his spot in the fourth round, where he will face another defensive specialist, Belgian David Goffin. "I like when players show emotion like Filip did in that instant".

20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer will look to book his place in the quarter-finals of the Miami Open when he faces in-form Daniil Medvedev of Russian Federation in the last-16 of the tournament on Wednesday.

Federer began to pressurise the Albot backhand and eventually it brought him some joy, a wayward shot beyond the baseline bringing a break and set point, a cushioned volley at the net converting to level the match.

It was Anderson's first tournament appearance since the Australian Open in January and he said he was happy with the way his elbow felt. Anderson mixed 13 aces with just one double fault to seal a 6-4, 7-6 (6) victory over Portuguese Sousa earlier on Monday. "Three years ago I got injured".

"I've played so many matches", the 18-year-old Canadian said.

Halep and Kontaveit were joined in the quarterfinals by Petra Kvitova, who faced only one break point and beat Caroline Garcia 6-3, 6-3.

Czech third seed Petra Kvitova beat Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia 6-3 6-3 to set up a quarter-final clash with Australian 12th seed Ashleigh Barty, a 4-6 6-3 6-2 victor over seventh seed Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands.

Andreescu was 1-6 0-2 down before a shoulder injury ruined her chances of another run to the finals.
