Federer rolls into fourth round at Indian Wells

I just completely lost rhythm, everything.

On his highly-anticipated return to the tour after right elbow surgery, Djokovic looked a shadow of his former self.

Federico was off to a better start in set number two, holding easily in the opening two service games to be leveled at 2-2 before the rain started to fall, forcing the organizers to call it a day and move the match into Sunday's program.

Djokovic - who benefited from a bye in the first round - relinquished a 5-2 lead in the first set and wound up committing 61 unforced errors.

"I just struggled also a little bit with the health the last couple of weeks".

Federer blasted six aces, had one double fault and won 89 percent of his first serve points, losing just three points on his serve the entire match.

His opening match on Saturday night against Federico Delbonis carried over into Sunday afternoon after heavy rains forced a postponement of several night matches.

"The plan wasn't to hit drop shots", Federer said.




Federer was clearly not in the mood to get acquainted with the Serbian, though, running out a comfortable 6-2 6-1 victor in just under an hour.

Federer is making his 17th appearance in the California desert and is assured of remaining world No. 1 if he makes it to the semifinals.

Federer won the Indian Wells championship for a fifth time past year, adding to his crowns in the Southern California desert in 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2012.

It was another snag in the return for world No13 Djokovic, who admitted he lacked composure while playing in just his second event of 2018 and first since having surgery.

"It feels insane. I mean, I'm still in shock", Anisimova said.

"I probably won't play in the very beginning, you know, meaning Monaco".

If anyone knows what it is like to deal with injuries, it's Juan Martin del Potro - the career of the 2009 US Open victor has been ravaged by wrist injuries.

"But it's not easy to deal with this kind of frustrations after injuries or when you always be the favorite to win a tournament, you come here and you lose in first round". I'm very sorry as I love this tournament.
