Rafael Nadal was unbelievable in 2008 Wimbledon final says Roger Federer

But momentum swung in the fourth-seeded Federer's direction when he blasted a cross-court forehand victor to break Krajinovic's serve to take the closely fought first set.

Roger Federer continued his quest for a fourth Miami Open crown after reaching the last 16, but Grigor Dimitrov crashed out.

Roger Federer admits he faces a real battle to land the 101st title of his career with the in-form Daniil Medvedev next up after Serbian Filip Krajinovic was dispatched 7-5 6-3 on Monday at the ATP and WTA Miami Open.

After two semi-surprise wins over Sam Querrey and Alexander Zverev, David Ferrer couldn't keep his Miami farewell going against Frances Tiafoe, but he fought hard is a tough 5-7, 6-3, 6-3 loss to the American. And this year, I didn't want to have three months off and I was excited to play the clay season again.

Federer missed a break point opportunity at 4-3, Albot then crashing home a victor to heap the pressure back onto the 37-year-old before brilliantly sealing the first set.

However, Albot could not convert a break point in the deciding set tied a 3-3, and the Swiss took command from there to wrap up a match that lasted two hours and 10 minutes.
