Federer wins, 'weird' loss for Djokovic


Grigor Dimitrov

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. The Japanese overturned an 0-7 mark against Top 20 opposition, surging into the third round at an ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event for the first time.

Djokovic shut down his season after Wimbledon in 2017 and despite not being at his best, made a decision to play at this year's Australian Open where he was ousted by South Korea's Hyeon Chung in the fourth round. He suffered his first opening-round loss in the California desert since his debut in 2006.

Speaking to the media after the match, Djokovic said, "It felt like my first match on tour".

"I mean, I just completely lost rhythm, everything", he said.

"I was grateful to be out on the court after surgery that quickly but at the same time I just didn't feel good at all". With 2-1, he broke me.

But after his second-round match against Federico Delbonis which started at 8 p.m. Saturday night was halted due to rain with Federer up 6-3, 2-2, the match resumed Sunday and ended at about 4 p.m. with Federer winning 6-3, 7-6.
