Miami Open: Roger Federer beats Radu Albot, advances to third round

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. "I must say the past year has been unbelievable for him".

Swiss ace Roger Federer dispatched Filip Krajinovic 7-5, 6-3 to reach the fourth round of the Miami Open.

David Ferrer's 17th and final Miami Open campaign was ended by 28th seed Frances Tiafoe, who won 5-7 6-3 6-3.

"It was an. intense match in the first 10 games".

Roger Federer may have beaten Daniil Medvedev twice previous year, but the Swiss great still expects a tough match against the "clever" Russian when they meet in the Miami Open this morning (Singapore time). And this year, I didn't want to have three months off and I was excited to play the clay season again.

At 6-5, Federer went 15-40 up on the Serbian's service game and another backhand victor gave the 37-year-old the lead.

"I'm looking forward to the game", Federer said of Medvedev.
