Former World No. 1 Roger Federer is considered as heavy favorite to clinch 2014 BNP Paribas Open crown this week, after his rival and top seed Rafael Nadal make early exit from the tournament.

17-time singles Grand Slam winner has been playing best tennis from the beginning of the 2014 season, where he has won season’s first ATP title at Dubai Tennis Championships earlier this month in Dubai. Federer is having most of the chances to clinch BNP Paribas Open crown for fifth time in his career, after defending champion Rafael Nadal stunned by Alexandr Dolgopolov in the Indian Wells third round with a 6-3, 3-6, 7-6.

Roger Federer is likely expecting to meet six-time major title winner Novak Djokovic in the BNP Paribas Open final this weekend, where both the players are playing aggressive tennis against their opponents. Swiss Maestro will play fourth round match against Tommy Haas on Wednesday, where he is having impressive record against his German opponent.

Federer might face two-time major title winner Andy Murray in quarter finals, as it could be tough match for both the champions at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Indian Wells. Meanwhile, Novak Djokovic will be other favorite to clinch the Indian Wells title for third time in his career, as he won previous titles in 2008 and 2011.
