Federer continues to marvel with entry into fourth round of Indian Wells

Don't sleep Novak Djokovic could win it all at Indian Wells Masters

The 10th-seeded Djokovic acknowledged his poor performance against the world's 109th-ranked player.

World number one tennis star Roger Federer showcased a rich vein of form as he eased past Serbia's Filip Krajinovic in straight sets to storm into the fourth round of the Indian Wells Masters here on Tuesday.

On his highly-anticipated return to the tour after right elbow surgery, Djokovic looked a shadow of his former self.

The 20-year-old has now won 11 of 12 final-set tie-breaks.

However, Daniel bounced back as he won the third set comfortably to clinch the match.

"I was feeling like he was not loving my slice and I was also mixing in drop shots", said Federer who extended his ideal record this season to 14-0.

Federer said he understands well how even a champion like Djokovic could be struggling to find his game so soon after having surgery. "I mean, I just completely lost rhythm, everything", he said.

"It's been a long time since I have been interrupted at night and have to come back the next day".

Also, American Taylor Fritz defeated Fernando Verdasco of Spain, 4-6, 6-2, 7-6 (7/1), Croatia's Borna Coric breezed past Roberto Bautista 6-1, 6-3 and Pablo Carreno-Busta of Spain, stopped Russian Daniil Medvedev 6-1, 7-5.

"I'm still not strong enough to go play a match".

Gael Monfils upset number 15 seed and 2012 runner-up John Isner 6-7 (5), 7-6 (3), 7-5.

Indications that he was in good touch came in the second game of the match when he sealed a break to go 2-0 ahead. "But I recovered very quickly, and I got myself ready", said Djokovic. "I didn't serve too good today but overall I'm pleased". So talking about faster, I just think there is more bounce to it, especially if you play someone who has a lot of spin like he has and kicks the ball around a lot. "When Marta Kostyuk got to the third round, you say, "I can do that, too.' But it's also cool that I'm playing here in the same tournament as Venus and Serena. Especially, you know, in a crowd like this, it's pretty awesome to do it, and I'm pretty happy... it's going to be a huge win for my career in the future, for sure".
