Federer broke Nadal four times in advancing to the quarterfinals in 68 minutes. Although Nadal owns a lead in their series, Federer has won three in a row for the first time, including an epic comeback in the Australian Open final two months ago at age That was big for me. Federer broke Nadal to open the match in front of a packed Stadium 1 crowd. Federer faced just one break point on his serve in the match, but he recovered with a big serve and two winning backhands to go up in the first set. He has a lot of confidence with his serve.
A mazingly, irresistibly, beguilingly Roger Federer is playing tennis, five months short of his 36th birthday, that, apart from minor adjustments for age, is virtually indistinguishable from that which held his rivals transfixed for most of his 20s. It hardly seems possible but it is happening. There were plenty of observers, one of them not far from this keyboard, who doubted Federer could break the long spell he endured without a major after beating Andy Murray at Wimbledon in True believers in the press pack were confined to a knot of shameless sycophants. It did not make sense that Federer could break the strengthening duopoly of Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray, even though the Swiss twice pushed the Serb close at Wimbledon, once in a classic final, in Rafael Nadal, too, from time to time was still in front of him. Federer resembled a fallen Hollywood star who kept auditioning for the same role while the greasepaint ran embarrassingly down his cheeks.
The year-old Federer is through to his seventh final at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden and is looking to win the title for the fifth time, adding to his victories in d. Henman , d. Hewitt , d. Blake and d. He's improved his serve.
World number 10 Federer claimed the first set before being broken for the first time at this year's tournament in the first game of the second set. Wawrinka, the world number three, went ahead before Federer won three games in a row on his way to the title. Federer becomes the oldest champion in the tournament's history, surpassing Jimmy Connors, who was 31 when he triumphed in Maybe it's not as surprising as Australia but it's still great to back it up by winning in America. I have totally exceeded my expectations. It's been an unbelievable start to the year.
Federer Neutralises Nadal To Make Indian Wells Quarter Final
Channeling the same game plan that reaped the ultimate reward in the Australian Open final in January, Roger Federer has put on a stunning display of aggression to defeat fifth seed Rafael Nadal in the fourth round of the BNP Paribas Open. The last time Nadal tasted victory was in the Australian Open semi-finals. This was the first time the pair had squared off before the quarter-finals since their first meeting in the Miami Open third round.

The incredible comeback continues. I hope my body is going to allow me to keep on playing. Just being here is a beautiful feeling. I came here for the first time 17 years ago. So to be here again as the champion is an amazing feeling. He is now set to rise back to No.
