Following up on his title win in 2014, world No.1 Novak Djokovic won the Indian Wells Masters 1000 event with a three-set victory over Roger Federer.
The top seed was dealt several momentum shifts during the match, and he certainly did not make it easy on himself with the numerous doubles faults he served that offered the world No. 2 a lifeline in the match. Eventually, after being forced into a third set, Djokovic took command of the match, broke twice and secured the 6-3, 6-7(5), 6-2 win against the Swiss star.
“I thought overall it was a great match from my side, very solid, great intensity, great commitment to hit every ball,” Djokovic said. “I was very focused in the present moment.”
Djokovic moves to 18-20 against Federer and avenged his loss to him just a few weeks ago in Dubai.
“Novak did well to sustain the lead for most of the match; I think he found an extra gear in the end,” Federer said. “It was tough. You know, I enjoyed the match; it had a bit of everything. Controlled aggression was the key out there to try to play like that from the baseline.”
This marks Djokovic’s fourth Indian Wells title, which equals Federer’s record at the tournament. They will both move on to play the Miami Open this week.
