― Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports/Reuters picINDIAN WELLS, March 13 ― World number one Roger Federer needed less than an hour to dispatch Filip Krajinovic at the BNP Paribas Open in California on Monday, mixing overpowering serves and pinpoint groundstrokes to advance to the fourth round of the tournament.

The 36-year old served up six aces and gave up just three points on serve in the whole match.

"The rest, I said I will decide after Miami to then decide what I will play if I do play the clay court after that".

"I think really I was able to mix up my game nicely, make it hard for him there". "At the same time, have fun with my game, play a variation, but for the most part try to stay on the offensive".

"I haven't really checked out my draw entirely", he said.

"But. I was grateful to be out on the court after surgery that quickly".

Federer, who took over from Rafael Nadal as the top ranked ATP men's singles player in February, needs to make, at least, the semi-finals in order to remain at the summit.

His opening match on Saturday night against Federico Delbonis carried over into Sunday afternoon after heavy rains forced a postponement of several night matches. We wait, we play, we wait again, we play again.

QB Kirk Cousins could get massive offer from Arizona Cardinals
If the Broncos had that kind of quarterback play a year ago , I don't think we'd be talking about a five-win team. It feels like the quarterback dominoes will fall after Kirk Cousins makes his decision.

'It felt like the first match I have ever played on the tour, very weird, ' he told reporters.

"It's been a long time since I have been interrupted at night and have to come back the next day", he said. "At the Masters 1000s, when the format was different, it was the best-of-five-set finals in the finals".

Andy Murray hasn't played in a competitive match since Wimbledon previous year and is still recovering from hip surgery.

"I think that would be a mistake".

The other victory came in Rotterdam.

World No.3 Marin Cilic of Croatia on Sunday defeated Hungary's Marton Fucsovics 7-5, 6-3 to set up a third-round clash with Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber, who beat Tim Smyczek of the United States 1-6, 6-4, 6-4.

Frenchman Gael Monfils survived a match point before beating big-serving American John Isner 6-7 (5-7) 7-6 (7-3) 7-5 in a contest that had only one break.
