Top 5 Masters 1000 matches between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal

Alyssa BaileyMar 16, 2017

Roger Federer will meet Rafael Nadal in the fourth round of the BNP Paribas Open, at Indian Wells in California.

But Nadal, seeded fifth, broke in the 11th game for a 6-5 lead and served out the win to seal his place in the fourth round and a potential Australian Open final repeat with Roger Federer who faces Steve Johnson later on Tuesday. Federer and Nadal shocked the world in Melbourne when they advanced to the final of the Australian Open in January, and in classic "Fedal" fashion, the match went five entertaining sets, with Federer prevailing in the decider to capture the first major of the year. And I try to see it really as another opportunity to build upon something for the rest of the season.

"I know he can play great tennis and when he was playing aggressively, he was very tough to play", Nishikori said. I think that's the most incredible thing about his game.

He and Nadal have faced each other 35 times in a celebrated rivalry, but they haven't met before the quarter-finals of a tournament since their first meeting in the round of 32 at Miami in 2004. To add to the excitement, the victor of the match between Nadal and Federer will take on either Djokovic or Kyrgios in the quarter-finals.

Blizzard: Cancellations already stretching into Wednesday
For example, Chicago is the most affected city: 47 per cent of all the flights in and from the city have been disrupted. Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C. were also under winter storm warnings.

It was hard to separate Federer and Johnson in the first set as games went the way of serve, with neither creating a single break point in normal play.

But the Serbian star arrives at a tournament he has owned shaken by a second-round exit at the Australian Open, which was followed by a shocking quarter-final loss to young Australian Nick Kyrgios in Acapulco.

"I still think about that a lot", Verdasco admits.

The setbacks come on the back of a troublesome second half of 2016, when he lost his world number one ranking to Andy Murray and relinquished his Wimbledon and US Open titles. Besides Nadal and Federer, two of Rafa's compatriots-Tommy Robredo and Feliciano Lopez-are still competing. "If I play against Roger in the fourth round, it will be great, but I need to win another match to do it".

I try to focus on my next round, and not look beyond that. "So I'm not comparing this year to the last years".

USA 12th seed Venus Williams put out qualifier Peng Shuai 3-6, 6-1, 6-3.

The seventh-seeded Spaniard had to dig in to subdue the hard-hitting Californian 3-6, 7-5, 6-2 and set up a meeting with 10th seeded Ukrainian Elina Svitolina.
