Federer won their lone FedEx ATP Head2Head matchup, a 6-2, 6-1 rout at the 2015 Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.

Federer would regain control though and despite the first set looking like it was headed for a tiebreak, he managed to manoeuvre his way to two set points off Chung's serve in the 12th game.

When is Federer's next match?

Roger Federer (1), Switzerland, def. Chung Hyeon (23), South Korea, 7-5, 6-1.

Roger Federer may be 36 years old, but he has been an unstoppable force during the 2018 season. The last time Federer started with such an unbeaten streak was 12 years ago in 2006.

With a who's who watching on, including Pete Sampras, Rod Laver and Will Ferrell, Federer said Chung was a game opponent.

"That was a tough mach. Chung is a tough return player", said Roger Federer at the post match conference at the Indian Wells. "And I come back, five-all, and he played good". Federer said he had to be conservative with his shotmaking to get back in it.

The state leadership had said the "meek surrender" was painful and very unfortunate. He accepted funds from Punjabis and also promised to punish Majithia.


He laughed: "What was I doing back then?"

The pair were evenly matched early on as they comfortably held serve until, at 5-5, the underdog ramped up the pressure and broke Federer at the second attempt, allowing him to clinch the set in the following game after an erroneous call had initially denied him a perfectly good victor.

"I'm just happy that I'm able to keep up a good level". Sometimes chances don't come around again and that's exactly what happend. "You kind of hope for this kind of scoreline, but you never know if you're actually going to get it". The only remaining American, 18th-seeded Sam Querrey, will play 32nd-seeded Canadian Milos Raonic, and sixth-seeded Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina will meet 31st-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany.

Russia's Daria Kasatkina pulled off one of the biggest surprises of this year's BNP Paribas Open, brushing aside an out-of-sorts Angelique Kerber 6-0, 6-2 to reach the semi-finals of this WTA hard-court tennis event here.

Federer trailed 4-3 in the third set but broke Coric and won the final three games.

The last-four tie between Roger Federer and Borna Coric 11 am local time, 11:30 pm IST, 6 pm GMT.

While Federer enjoyed a first round bye, Coric was in action, beating Donald Young, Albert Ramos Vinolas and Robert Bautista Agut in straight sets.
