The Swiss, who is bidding for a fourth title in Miami, beat Serbia's Krajinovic 7-5 6-3.
As Roger Federer kick-started his first match on the Hard Rock Stadium against the Moldavian tennis player, Rado Albot in the Miami Open 2019, the Swiss champion happens to drop his opening game of the opening set.
But it was far from plain sailing for the 37-year-old against the world number 46 in the match which lasted two hours and 10 minutes.
In a late upset, wild card David Ferrer, who is set to retire this year, defeated 2018 runner-up and second seed Alexander Zverev 2-6 7-5 6-3.
Federer began to pressurise the Albot backhand and eventually it brought him some joy, a wayward shot beyond the baseline bringing a break and set point, a cushioned volley at the net converting to level the match.Читайте также: Bethesda Giving Away Morrowind for Free Today Only
Albot came out of the blocks firing and immediately put Federer under pressure, fashioning two break points in the opening game.
Three-times Miami champion, Federer, finished with 38 winners but had to overcome 41 unforced errors to defeat Albot, who earned an ovation from the crowd for his efforts. After more than two months away from the court with an elbow injury, the world number seven smashed 17 aces en route to the second round win over the 21-year-old Munar. "I feel like I'm hitting the ball great", the sixth seed added.
He will face either American Reilly Opelka or Russian Daniil Medvedev next.
Evans led 20th seed Shapovalov by a set before going down 4-6 6-1 6-3.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
