Q. How tough is it to keep your focus in a match like that, especially with Nick being so up and down, the crowd going nuts? How do you focus on yourself?
ANDREAS SEPPI: Well, I remember the match from two years ago. Was pretty much the same. So I knew what's going to happen, what's going to be in the court. So, of course, it's always very, very tough to play in a crowd like this or stadium like this.

But was great atmosphere. Yeah, I always enjoy playing on these big courts.

Federer to face Seppi in Indian Wells

Roger Federer beat Diego Schwartzman 6-4, 6-2 to advance to the BNP Paribas Open third round.

Roger hit eight aces, won 13 of 14 points at the net, and faced no break points in the 63-minute match.

The former world number 1 will face Andreas Seppi, who defeated Victor Hanescu 6-4, 6-4. The Italian beat Federer at the Australian Open and the Swiss is expecting this revenge.

“I'm happy to play him again,” Federer said of his next opponent. “I was very disappointed with the performance I had in Australia. I know he can play well and can beat me, that's not the problem. It was the way I was hitting the ball. I wasn't playing very committed. I wasn't sure exactly how I was going to hit my forehand and backhands. It was just a tough match overall and the match slipped away from me.

Andreas Seppi Press Conference Australian Open R3 Friday, 23 January, 2015

Q. Did you surprise yourself today?

ANDREAS SEPPI: Yeah, of course. You know, to beat Roger first time, especially in a Grand Slam, best-of-five, is a special moment for me. Of course at the beginning I just went on the court to enjoy the match and to play my best tennis. Yeah, but especially after the first set, then I felt, you know, I am there, I am hitting the ball very well. I start to believe that I can do more. Yeah, then I think very important was the second set tiebreak. And, yeah, it worked out pretty well.

Q. His record against you is very imposing, 10-0. How do you go into a match trying not to think about that?

ANDREAS SEPPI: Yeah, I mean, as I said, I went in the court of course to, first of all, enjoy the moment. You don't play every day on center court, full stadium in a Grand Slam against Roger. I was pretty calm, I have to say, from the beginning. Also in the important moments. Maybe it was the match where I felt more comfortable in my life also with my emotions. I think that help me for sure in the end of the match a lot.

Q. What did he say to you at the end?
