Federer equals his best start to year ever

Federer equals his best start to year ever

Switzerland's Federer recalls parts of that streak but not all the tournaments he played in to get there. Now at an impressive 16-0 for 2018, Federer has equaled the start he achieved in 2006 during his first period of total domination over tennis. "Of course I can not believe what I'm doing in my 'new career, ' you know". "And Kei is playing really good and great player in the world, and I hope he playing good this year".

"Saving break-point is always a good feeling - I felt good about it - gained a lot of confidence and solidified my lead".

"It's a great start".

"That was a tough mach. Chung is a tough return player", said Roger Federer at the post match conference at the Indian Wells. Chung went the distance this time but still couldn't solve Federer. "In the first set I couldn't find my rhythm because he was playing way too fast and I wasn't serving too good. I started off really well, struggled afterwards, found my game back again and was able to protect it, saving big break points early on in the second set", Federer said.

Federer clinched the victory on his second match point when he blasted his 12th and final ace of the contest.

Awaiting him in the last four is Coric, the Croatian upsetting seventh seed Kevin Anderson 2-6 6-4 7-6 (7-3).

Federer reclaimed number one spot in the ATP rankings by making the semi finals in Rotterdam in February.

Coric is ranked 49th in the world and certain to improve after his Indian Wells run.

The bespectacled Chung, appearing in his fifth quarterfinal in six tournaments this year, dropped to 15-6 on the season.

The world No. 44 declared that she is gunning for the records of her compatriot Kei Nishikori, who became Japan's first Grand Slam singles finalist at the 2014 US Open.

The world number one had to beat Chung in the quarter-finals in order to maintain his place at the top of the rankings and he did it in convincing fashion in the end after a tough opening set.

Federer said he plans to get ready for Coric the same way he prepared for Chung.

Federer, however, admitted that he is wary of the weather conditions as his semi-final clash will be held during the day session. "He has all the confidence in the world right now so it is going to be tough", the 20-time Grand Slam victor added. He doesn't come to tennis much.
