Chung to face Federer again at Indian Wells

Chung to face Federer again at Indian Wells

The Swiss is unbeaten in 2018, having won 15 matches and claimed titles at the Australian Open and Rotterdam Open.

Federer advances to the quarter-finals where he will face South Korea's Chung Hyeon who defeated 30th-seeded Pablo Cuevas 6-1, 6-3 earlier on Wednesday.

In January, Chung was a surprise semifinalist at the Australian Open, where his run ended when he was forced to retire mid-match against Roger Federer due to left foot blisters. He started 16-0 and went on to win 33 of 34 matches.

That allowed Federer to repeatedly put Chardy under some pressure, although it took until the 11th game for him to clinch his first break. "Because that thing looked nasty and it takes some time to heal".

"And here now I'm relieved that I was able to win three matches already". Trailing 4-2 in the first set, Martic closed to 5-4 before Halep served it out. Just playing really fast and good serve, good baseline. "I just was more focused on what I have to do, not thinking that much about the wind and what is going on on court".

In other fourth round matches, American Sam Querrey beat Feliciano Lopez of Spain 6-3, 6-4 and sixth seeded Juan Martin Del Potro rallied to beat fellow Argentinian Leonardo Mayer 3-6, 7-6 (7/2), 6-3.

Chung broke through with his first ATP Tour win last November at the inaugural Next Gen ATP Finals and has gone 15-5 so far in 2018 while advancing to at least the quarterfinals in all five events he's played.

The 7-1 win in the second-set tiebreak was a case in point as Kohlschreiber felt no pressure to ease to victory despite some tight exchanges.

Halep next plays the victor of a quarter-final between No. 5 seed Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic and Naomi Osaka of Japan. Back in the Top 50 in the ATP Rankings, the Croatian dropped just nine games in his opening three rounds before stamping his authority on #NextGenATP American Taylor Fritz in a three-set fourth-round clash.
