Just one day removed from Novak Djokovic’s three-set victory over Roger Federer at the BNP Paribas Open, and it’s time for more world-class tennis in the second ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event of the season.
Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer entered the BNP Paribas Open final playing exceptional tennis. Neither had dropped a set en route to the championship match, dispatching some of the world’s best with apparent ease.
World No. 1 Novak Djokovic retained the BNP Paribas Open title with a tight three-set victory over No. 2 Roger Federer, renewing their fierce rivalry in the Indian Wells final for a second year in a row.
The World No. 2 will vie for an unprecedented fifth Indian Wells crown after firing 15 winners during the 86-minute affair, including these back-to-back blistering backhands to secure an immediate break in the second set.
