BNP Paribas Open 2013 results: Roger Federer, Caroline Wozniacki advance on Day 6

Stephen Dunn

Two of the world's best on the men's and women's side were impressive during Monday's action in the desert.

Roger Federer and Caroline Wozniacki each advanced into the fourth round on Day 6 of the BNP Paribas Open on Monday at Indian Wells Tennis Garden.

Federer defeated Ivan Dodig of Croatia in straight sets, 6-3, 6-1, in just over one hour. He was efficient and methodical as he had an 82-percent first-serve point conversion rate and broke serve four times. He's seeking his first ATP Tour title since August 2012 and appears poised to have a good look at it at the very least.

On the women's side, fourth-seed Angelique Kerber moved on to the Round of 16 in a defeat of No. 30 seed Yanina Wickmayer, 6-1, 7-6 (4). No. 8 seed Caroline Wozniacki needed only 76 minutes to defeat her opponent, Elena Vesnina of Russia, 6-2, 6-1. Wozniacki won the title at Indian Wells in 2011 with a defeat of Marion Bartoli and finished runner-up in 2010.
