Roger Federer is into the third round at Hard Rock Stadium where he will face Filip Krajinovic

Roger Federer came from a set down to beat Radu Albot and reach the Miami Open third round but Dan Evans and Alexander Zverev were among the Saturday exits.

The Swiss great, a three time champion of the event, including 2017 when he beat Rafael Nadal, need more that two hours to see off world No 45 Albot with a 4-6 7-5 6-3 victory that set up a date with Filip Krajinovic in the third round.

The 37-year-old, beaten by Dominic Thiem in last week’s Paribas Open final at Indian Wells, smashed 14 aces and broke Albot twice to advance but it was far from plain sailing for the 20-time Grand Slam champion.
