March 12, 2018 -- Indian Wells, CA
In a routine match on a sweltering desert afternoon, Roger made quick work of his opponent to reach the Round of 16 at the BNP Paribas Open.
Needing less than an hour, Roger took control of the match against Filip Krajinovic blasting winners off both wings and serving himself out of any tough spots. He won the match 6-2, 6-1. Next up for the World Number 1 will be Jeremy Chardy this Wednesday.
"I was playing aggressive and feeling like he was not loving my slice, and then also mixing in dropshots eventually," Roger said. "I think I was able to mix up my game nicely, make it difficult for him.”
