Federer advanced to the fourth round at Key Biscayne Monday, beating Juan Martin del Potro 6-3, 6-4 . Federer, who was facing del Potro for the first time since 2013, never lost serve and improved to 15-1 this year.He broke del Potro twice, once in each set, and that was all he needed.Another break for a 3-2 lead in the second set, not long after del Potro got his oft-problematic left wrist taped on a changeover, put Federer in control.The last seven Federer-del Potro matches coming into this meeting all went the distance, with some classics – the 4 1/2-hour, three-setter at the 2012 Olympics at Wimbledon where Federer prevailed 19-17 in the third, Federer rallying from two sets down in the French Open quarterfinals that year, and del Potro winning the 2009 U.S. Open in five sets for his lone Grand Slam triumph.
