Federer on fire in Indian Wells

Federer on fire in Indian Wells

In just his second tournament since Wimbledon a year ago - his first comeback at the Australian Open in January saw him lose in the fourth round to Hyeon Chung before he made a decision to go under the knife for a "small medical intervention" - Djokovic looked well below his best as he went down 7-6 (7-3) 4-6 6-1 to a man ranked 109 in the world.

However, 25-year-old Daniel dominated the third and final set to take it 6-1.

The clouds rolled in just before the start of the match and after a short delay to start the first set they managed to play until the heavy rains came in the second. He extended his 2018 win streak to 13 matches and has only dropped three sets from 34 played in 2018.

Federer and 10th seed Djokovic both came into the tournament seeking to become the first six-time victor of the event.

Speaking after his upset win, Daniel said the Djokovic he bounded out of the tournament was not the one the tennis world is used to admiring.

Serbian champion Djokovic was making a return from elbow surgery.

"Very weird, I just completely lost rhythm".

Djokovic was makings his first appearance since being stunned by Hyeon Chung at the Australian Open.

Spanish 11th seed Pablo Carreno Busta defeated Daniil Medvedev 6-1 7-5 but 13th-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut was dismantled 6-1 6-3 by 21-year-old Croatian Borna Coric.

"It felt like first match I ever played on the tour", Djokovic said.

Djokovic had four aces but overall he served poorly making four double faults and winning just 65 per cent of his first-serve points. World No3 Marin Cilic beat Hungary's Marton Fucsovics 7-5 6-3.

Other seeded players who lost were ninth-seeded Lucas Pouille, who fell 6-4, 6-4 to Yuki Bhambri; 14th-seeded Diego Schwartzman, 7-5, 6-4 to Marcos Baghdatis; 21st-seeded Kyle Edmund, 6-4, 6-4 to Dudi Sela; and number 24 seed Giles Muller, 6-3, 7-5 to Pierre-Hugues Herbert.
