Roger Federer rolls into Indian Wells fourth round

Roger Federer rolls into Indian Wells fourth round”

However, he is aware of the struggles players endure while returning from a long-term absence and believes Djokovic is only "going to get better" as the season progresses.

Federer's second-round match-up with Delbonis was delayed in the second set on Saturday due to rain, and the Swiss was intrigued by the opportunity to take on the same opponent for the second day running as he triumphed 6-3 7-6 (8-6).

Open slump. Federer improved to 65-5 since returning from a left knee injury previous year with his third-round victory in a rare day match. He and 10th seed Djokovic both came into the tournament seeking to become the first six-time victor of the event.

Taro Daniel who's ranked 109th in the world knocked out former number one Novak Djokovic from the second round of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells.

The 36-year-old had extra practice time this week after being given a bye in the first round at Indian Wells.

Marin Cilic, the 2014 US Open champion who lost to Federer in the final of this year's Australian Open, eased to a 7-5 6-3 victory over Marton Fucsovics. "That has always been a rock-solid shot for me throughout my career", said Djokovic, who hit 61 unforced errors throughout the two-hour 31-minute match.

Kvitova entered the match on a 14-match win streak, moving back into the top 10.

"I have been sick for over a week and tried everything I could to get better".

Federer said on Thursday that he won't be taking anyone for granted in this draw.

"The Djokovic I know is like the Djokovic I have seen on TV, and he never misses a ball". The world No. 25 had been scheduled to face Argentina's Leonardo Mayer in a second-round match.

She has now won three straight, beating the No. 23 seed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the second round and then transforming her first appearance on this tournament's main court into a coming-of-age moment by upsetting Petra Kvitova, the No. 9 seed and two-time Wimbledon champion, 6-2, 6-4, on Sunday in the third round. Wolrd No 5 Alexander Zverev slumped to a shock 7-5, 5-7, 6-4 defeat to unheralded Joao Sousa in his opening match. "Back in the day, I used to play six matches in a row".

Also, American Taylor Fritz defeated Fernando Verdasco of Spain, 4-6, 6-2, 7-6 (7/1), Croatia's Borna Coric breezed past Roberto Bautista 6-1, 6-3 and Pablo Carreno-Busta of Spain, stopped Russian Daniil Medvedev 6-1, 7-5.
