Federer books rematch with Korean giant killer Chung

Chung Hyeon plays against Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay during the BNP Paribas Open at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in California on Wednesday.

World number one Roger Federer cemented his spot in the quarter-finals of the Indian Wells Masters after brushing aside France's Jeremy Chardy in straight sets in the fourth round of the tournament here on Thursday.

Both met in January at the semi-finals of Australian Open. "I am pleased that I reached the quarterfinals, and I'll prepare hard for my next match". "Because that thing looked nasty and it takes some time to heal".

"It is highly explosive, it's highly impressive what he does and I think he is going to be a great player", Federer said. "So I'm excited to play against him".

However, Chung could prove to be Federer's toughest opponent of the tournament yet with the South Korean having defeated number 12 seed Tomas Berdych on his way to the last eight. "I just fought and that's maybe why I won because I refuse to lose". "Not easy to play with the wind, but I'm just trying to focus all the time".

"I thought it was the right decision a year ago to skip the clay", he said. "Just playing really fast and good serve, good baseline". So many years I felt good actually in Australia already.

Chung bowed to Roger Federer and severe blisters bursting the bottom of his feet. Mobile and tablet users can watch the action live on the Sony Liv app. Laptop users can stream via Sony Liv's official website and also on the BNP Paribas' official website.

The quarterfinals were as far as Chung got at the ATP Mexican Open in Acapulco at the start of March as well, losing to world No. 8 Kevin Anderson of Brazil in straight sets.

She needed two hours and 23 minutes to beat the Croatian.

Del Potro will go up against Philipp Kohlschreiber for a place in the semi-finals after the German beat Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert 6-4, 7-6.

Fritz had a chance to serve out the second set at 5-4 and couldn't do it, but he saved a match point down 6-5 in the tiebreaker before trying it up and letting out a yell.

"I stayed calm. It was very, very tough second set", Coric said.
