Federer downs Delbonis to kick off Indian Wells Masters title defence

Djokovic looked rusty in his 7-6 (3), 4-6, 6-1 defeat against Daniels at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells.

No wonder the injury hit Djokovic uttered to reporters afterward: "For me it felt like (the) first match I ever played on the tour". Off to a fantastic start on the 2018 ATP World Tour, it appears he is the undisputed player to beat in men's singles right now. "I mean, I just completely lost rhythm, everything".

Djokovic bowed out to South Korean Chung Hyeon in the fourth round of the 2018 Australian Open.

He had elbow surgery in Switzerland shortly after that. I start serving, like, I think most first serves and actually, like, like harder, like faster. "That is as head scratching as anything you'll see".

Lock, who has reached a career high ATP singles ranking of 1 571 and 590 in doubles, won his first Davis Cup match in a 2015 Davis Cup tie against Moldova.

Roger Federer needed an hour to finish off his rain-delayed second round victory over Federico Delbonis 6-3, 7-6 (8/6) at Indian Wells.

Amid a conversation with the umpire and Delbonis on court, Federer could be heard telling his Argentine opponent: "I can start but if you don't wanna start we don't have to".

"The night-time is much deader. The surface doesn't react so much".

Isner, the 15th seed, frittered away seven break points, while Monfils converted one of his three opportunities, which proved enough.

Yuki Bhambri of India pulled off a surprise when he toppled ninth-seeded Frenchman Lucas Pouille 6-4 6-4.

Argentina's Juan Martin Del Potro (6) defeated Australia's Alex De Minaur 6-2, 6-1 to set up a third-round match with Spain's David Ferrer (29), who beat American Tim Smyczek 6-2, 7-6 (3).

The 21-year-old Zimbabwe Davis Cup team player, who is the younger brother of professional tennis player Benjamin Lock, later spoke of his delight at rubbing shoulders with the successful trio in an interview with Standardsport.

"I was attacking when I had my chances and controlling most of the times the points", said Cilic. But at the same time, just didn't feel good at all.

Nishikori, who returned to competition in January after a five-month injury layoff, apologized for his withdrawal in a Twitter post on Sunday.
