Novak Djokovic's struggles continue with Indian Wells defeat

Novak Djokovic's struggles continue with Indian Wells defeat

Djokovic shut down his season after Wimbledon in 2017 and despite not being at his best, chose to play at this year's Australian Open where he was ousted by South Korea's Hyeon Chung in the fourth round. Djokovic even admitted that he lacked rhythm in the game.

Federer and Delbonis will return to centre court on Sunday, tournament organisers confirmed. "I mean, I just completely lost rhythm, everything". "Just struggled also a little bit with the health the last couple of weeks". Just didn't feel good at all, nerves were there.

"But he's strong enough to deal with that, and I love him and I want to see him in the top positions very soon".

Federer stressed it was always going to be hard for the six-time Australian victor to impress on his return from injury, which is why the 36-year-old was not surprised following Djokovic's struggle in Indian Wells.

Thiem has already won a tour-leading 17 matches this season, but he had to work hard to beat 19-year-old Tsitsipas, who reached the quarter-finals in Dubai last week and is ranked 71st in the world. "She's the best player I have ever played, and it was the biggest court I have ever played on".

JAPANESE qualifier Taro Daniel sent five-time tournament champion Novak Djokovic tumbling out of the Indian Wells Masters with a hard-fought 7-6 (7-3) 4-6 6-1 victory on Monday (AEST).

His rendition of Rihanna's " Stay " was so pure and moving that it brought tears , along with big hugs from all the panel. He auditioned with a cover of Allen Stone's "Unaware", playing a beat up guitar with a hole in its top.

"It's been a long time since I have been interrupted at night and have to come back the next day", Federer said.

Daniel's third-round opponent is Argentina's Leonardo Mayer, who had been scheduled to play Japan's Kei Nishikori in the second round before the world No. 25 withdrew through illness.

Second-seeded Marin Cilic of Croatia and eighth-seeded American Jack Sock both earned second-round wins in straight sets.

Russia's Ekaterina Makarova had taken the first set against German 10th seed Angelique Kerber 6-3 and the first game of the second set was underway when their match was halted.
