It is his best beginning to the season since 2006 when he started 16-0 and won 33 of his first 34 matches.

In addition, as Federer once again reached the semi-finals of the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells, he will remain World #1 for at least another two weeks - fending off Rafael Nadal's chance to reclaim the top spot.

Switzerland's Federer recalls parts of that streak but not all the tournaments he played in to get there. "I don't know. What was I doing back then?" he asked.

"I guess I had a similar good start to the year". And if you include his Hopman Cup matches at the start of the year, the Swiss Maestro actually sits at 19 wins and 0 losses! "I was honestly quite surprised how quickly he came back", Federer said.

"I don't care what's happening on court, I just try to execute my game", Williams said.

Halep blasted two aces and broke Martic's serve four times."I just fought and that's maybe why I won because I refuse to lose", Halep said.Halep won the final five games of the third set after being broken once and falling behind 3-1 early.The turning point in the third set came for Halep after she won a challenge in the eighth game with Martic holding serve. Federer served his fifth love game of the match to close it out.

Federer will next meet Croatia's Borna Coric, who reached his maiden ATP Masters 1,000 semifinal by beating Kevin Anderson of South Africa 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (3).

She advanced to the quarter-finals with a three-set win over world No. 2 Caroline Wozniacki, who won the Australian Open in January. Last month he claimed his 97th singles title with a victory in Rotterdam which helped him regain the world number one ranking and become the oldest No. 1 player in ATP history. The South Korean was more competitive this time around than their first meeting of the season at the Australian Open semi-finals when he had to retire midway through the second set after suffering blisters on his foot. He's set to surpass Japan's Kei Nishikori as the top Asian player in the ATP rankings. "I'm expecting a tough one".

Chung said, according to the (Palm Springs, Calif.) Desert Sun, "He played just really good serve, good volley, good baseline. He has all the confidence in the world right now so it is going to be tough", the 20-time Grand Slam victor added.
