Write off Roger Federer at your peril. Four months after ending one of the longest title droughts of his career, the former world No 1 last night claimed his sixth tournament in his last eight appearances when he won the Indian Wells Masters. Federer beat John Isner, of the United States, 7-6, 6-3 to win the Californian title for a record fourth time.

Twenty-four hours after sweeping aside Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals, Federer earned revenge for his stunning Davis Cup defeat by Isner in Switzerland last month.
