Roger Federer Beats Chung Hyeon To Equal Season-Best Start

The last time Del Potro and Federer played was last year in the Basel final where Federer won 6-7, 6-4 6-3

He's set to reach a new career high of No. 23 on Monday, which will make him the highest-ranked Asian player in ATP this season, ahead of Kei Nishikori of Japan. But then I just chose to relax and fight. "I don't even remember what tournament I played first up and won".

"The sport gave me cherished friendships, an ability to travel the world, and opportunities to create incredible memories", the 39-year-old said. "In the third, again, I knew it's one break, it's two or three points that are going to decide, and that's what happened". It is a totally different year, and so many years after that", he said on Thursday."For so many years I have felt good actually in Australia already.

Federer is now 4-1 overall against Chardy, having beaten the Frenchman the last two times they played.

"I'm happy I found a way".

Chung let four break points slip in the opening game of the second set and he was punished, Federer rolling out to a 4-1 lead. "I think that was the key to the match, those 10, 15 minutes where I broke at the end of the first and then saved break points early in the second".

The agency's chief, Pierre Kraehenbuel, said expectations in the region were high that donors would step up. Refugee women protest against the USA for withholding $65 million from Palestinian aid programs.

Kohlschreiber advanced to the fourth round where he will play unseeded Pierre-Hugues Herbert who won his third round match when fellow Frenchman Gael Monfils retired in the second set with a lower back injury.

Federer will face Borna Coric in the final four of the tournament after the Croatian enjoyed an upset over number seven seed Kevin Anderson. But the reigning Next Gen ATP Finals champion, like everyone else on the ATP World Tour this year, had no lasting answer for the five-time BNP Paribas Open champion, who improved to 11-1 in Indian Wells quarter-finals.

Last month he claimed his 97th singles title with a victory in Rotterdam which helped him regain the world number one ranking and become the oldest No. 1 player in ATP history. The 36-year-old Swiss superstar can equal his season-best start of 16-0 with a win in the quarter-finals, where he will meet Chung Hyeon of South Korea in a rematch of their Australian Open semi-final.

Instead, Federer broke Chung and never looked back, winning the second set 6-1 and playing some sublime tennis in the process.

Federer, however, admitted that he is wary of the weather conditions as his semi-final clash will be held during the day session.
