16 March, 2019, 23:42
At the tournament in the United States, which is a Masters 1000 event and widely considered as one of the biggest events outside of the four Grand Slams, 37-year-old Federer eased through with a 6-1, 6-4 win over Great Britain's Kyle Edmund.

Roger Federer has spilled the beans on the one thing Rod Laver has over him - and it has nothing to do with tennis. "I think he's the best athlete we have on tour". "And it is not always that easy to get to the semis or finals of Masters 1000s [tournaments]".
Federer and Nadal have met 38 times, with Nadal winning 23 of those encounters.
