Indian Wells, California: Roger Federer made quick work of Ivan Dodig on Monday, keeping his Indian Wells title defence on track with a 6-3, 6-1 third-round victory over the 60th-ranked Croatian.

Federer needed just 61 minutes to seal the victory -- abetted somewhat by Dodig's six double-faults, the last of which came on match point.

The quick finish may have been a godsend for the Swiss great, who said he "tweaked" his back late in the match.
