• Federer, Nadal, Williams cruise at Indian Wells


    INDIAN WELLS: Former champions Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal breezed through their Indian Wells openers while Serena Williams stepped up her comeback from a 14-year boycott with a similar crushing victory on Sunday (Monday in Manila). Second seed Federer opened his bid for a fifth Indian Wells title by easing to a 6-4, 6-2 second round victory over Argentina’s Diego Schwartzman. Nadal also opened his campaign on a successful note, blitzing Igor Sijsling 6-4, 6-2 in the joint WTA and ATP hardcourt tournament. Williams stepped up her comeback from a 14-year Indian Wells boycott by storming into the fourth round with a 6-2, 6-0 demolition of error-prone Zarina Diyas.
