Keeping up with the game of tennis, by the numbers. Each day at Tennis Now we’ll give you a fresh set—without any further ado, here’s what happened on Tuesday and what’s on tap for Wednesday at the BNP Paribas Open:


Roger Federer faces Jeremy Chardy on Wednesday looking to improve his record to an impressive 14-0. This is Federer’s best start to a season since 2006, when he began 16-0. He owns a 59-11 lifetime record at Indian Wells and a 3-1 record against Chardy.


Angelique Kerber has won 70% of her return games, breaking serve 21 times in three matches, to lead all WTA quarterfinalists.


How drastic has Angelique Kerber’s turnaround in 2018 been? She went 1-12 against the Top 20 last year. This year she is already 6-3. Wow.


Fritz has an 11-1 career record in pro matches decided in a final-set tie-break, including 5-0 this season. Six of those wins have come at challenger level and another at qualifying but nevertheless an impressive run or clutch tennis by Taylor Fritz. He faces Borna Coric in today’s first match on Stadium 1.


The ranking of Simona Halep all the way through Miami. The Romanian is now assured of holding No.1 into and through Miami because of Caroline Wozniacki’s loss to Daria Kasatkina last night. It means Halep will finish the Miami Open with 21 weeks at No.1 and will be tied with Tracy Austin and Maria Sharapova for 13th on the WTA’s all-time list for weeks at No.1.


Leonardo Mayer’s record against the Top 10. He has lost his last ten against the Top 10 but will try again today when he faces compatriot Juan Martin del Potro. Mayer’s lone win came against David Ferrer in the 2014 Hamburg final.
