"It's been a long time since I have been interrupted at night and have to come back the next day", Federer said.

The Swiss 36-year-old has now won two titles and 14 consecutive matches in 2018.

In the women's section at Indian Wells, Simona Halep took pride in rallying past 19-year-old Caroline Dolehide, while Petra Kvitova's remarkable win streak skidded to a halt against another U.S. teen.

After handing back an early break to allow Krajinovic to draw level at two-all, Federer moved into cruise control. The Israeli only qualified for the contest as a lucky loser, while Edmund―appearing in his first match since the Australian Open―was widely backed as a dark horse to go deep into the tournament. "I felt I was too close to winning".

Wozniacki outlasted Aliaksandra Sasnovich of Belarus 6-4, 2-6, 6-3 for her 31st career match win at Indian Wells, where she has played 12 straight years.

"I was grateful to be out on the court after surgery that quickly but at the same time just didn't feel good at all".
