Federer on Sunday once again displayed why he is called a legend as he defeated Stan Wawrinka 6-4, 7-5 in an all-Swiss final that lasted for one hour and 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, Andy Murray continues to remain at the top spot despite his second-round exit from Indian Wells while Novak Djokovic, who also made an early exit in the Southern Californian desert, retained the second spot ahead of third-placed Wawrinka.
The current ATP top 10 are :
1. Andy Murray
2. Novak Djokovic
3. Stan Wawrinka
4. Kei Nishikori
5. Milos Raonic
6. Roger Federer
7. Rafael Nadal
8. Dominic Thiem
9. Marin Cilic
10. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
