World No. 1 Roger Federer stepped up his bid for a sixth Indian Wells Masters title with a 6-2, 6-1 demolition of Filip Krajinovic on Monday.
The Swiss, 36, marvel continues to defy the ageing process as he needed just 58 minutes to overpower the Serb with a brilliant display of timing.

"I was feeling like he was not loving my slice and I was also mixing in dropshots," said Federer who extended his perfect record this season to 14-0. "I really I was able to mix up my game nicely, make it difficult for him. At the same time, have fun with my game, play a variation, but for the most part try to stay on the offensive."

Federer blasted six aces, and won 89 percent of his first serve points, losing just three points on his serve the entire match. "I actually was explosive out there and I felt good," he said.
