Roger Federer gets rain-delayed opening win at Indian Wells

Roger Federer gets rain-delayed opening win at Indian Wells

Djokovic was beaten 7-6 (7-3) 4-6 6-1 by qualifier Taro Daniel in one of the tournament's big shocks on Sunday, having been out of action since the Australian Open due to surgery on an elbow problem.

Defending champion Roger Federer eased into the fourth round at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells with an authoritative straight-sets victory over Filip Krajinovic.

In Indian Wells, the Swiss has won five times (2004, 2005, 2006, 2012 and 2017) and was a finalist in 2014 and 2015, both times defeated by Serbian Novak Djokovic.

But Federer, 36, then rattled off four games in a row to seal the set, showing wonderful variety that the 26-year-old Krajinovic could not deal with.

Also through to the third round are Roger Federer, who beat Federico Delbonis 6-3 7-6 (8/6) in one hour and 43 minutes, while Juan Martin Del Potro took just under 70 minutes to beat Australian Alex de Minaur 6-2 6-1.

Meanwhile, America's Sloane Stephens who has been struggling ever since her US Open win lost to Daria Kasatkina of Russian Federation 6-4, 6-3, and fell to 2-4 in matches this year.

Daniel sent an out-of-sorts Djokovic tumbling with a hard-fought 7-6 (7/3), 4-6, 6-1 victory.

"He puts the ball wherever he wants", Daniel said. "I made so many unforced errors that it was just one of those exdays where you are not able to find the rhythm from the baseline especially from the backhand side". "When you go away from the game for a two-month period, it starts feeling a little bit that way.

It's been a long time since I have been interrupted at night and have to come back the next day". I was actually pretty nervous playing the match.

'You can't really look ahead to semi-finals, finals and speculate about who you could play, ' Federer said.

"I was grateful to be out on the court after surgery that quickly but at the same time just didn't feel good at all", he added.

"I'd like to congratulate my opponent for fighting and showing great, great spirit on the court", said Djokovic. "He's got a lot of things going for him, that's for sure".

Next up for the 23rd seed is Cuevas, who was leading 3-6 6-4 4-2 when Thiem retired hurt.
