Indian Wells: Federer dispatches Krajinovic to advance to fourth round

ATP Indian Wells: Roger Federer tops Delbonis to keep perfect score in 2018

JAPANESE qualifier Taro Daniel sent five-time tournament champion Novak Djokovic tumbling out of the Indian Wells Masters with a hard-fought 7-6 (7-3) 4-6 6-1 victory on Monday (AEST).

"Warming up this morning, I was like, crap, this court is really big". He surpassed Argentine Federico Delbonis after rain forced the Swiss tennis star a victory to wait until next morning on Sunday to clinch his first win of the tournament.

Federer, who bounced back from knee surgery to capture the 2017 Australian Open, said regaining rhythm takes time after an extended break. "And even though you don't have pain, you are still thinking about it because it's something I've been feeling and dragging for over two years".

Indications that he was in good touch came in the second game of the match when he sealed a break to go 2-0 ahead.

"Yeah, I mean, I haven't been playing that well on the practice, as well". He has been playing some of the best tennis of his career since his return which has yielded him nine titles in the last 13 months.

"I think it's only (a matter of) time to get where he deserves to be", said Del Potro.

Google Will Ban Online Ads for Cryptocurrencies and Initial Coin Offerings
Alphabet Inc .'s Google LLC plans to ban online ads that promote cryptocurrencies and initial coin offerings starting from June. Facebook introduced a similar ad ban on cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum back in late January .

"But he's strong enough to deal with that, and I love him and I want to see him in the top positions very soon". "It's maybe just odd to hear that from such a champion, you know, that he also feels that way".

"I played solid from all the ways", said the 2009 US Open victor from Argentina. "I know how much work I have put into it, and I know what I had to do to get here". Federer, who earned his fifth title at Indian Wells a year ago, saved a set point in the second-set tiebreaker and advanced on Monday to face Filip Krajinovic on Tuesday. Chardy has played eight sets already this tournament and has been very shaky with his second serve recently.

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 No 24 seed Giles Muller, 6-3 7-5 to Pierre-Hugues Herbert.

In a stunning performance, the 110th-ranked Yuki, who qualified for the main draw, dispatched the ninth seed Frenchman 6-4, 6-4 in one hour and 19 minutes.

He was uncharacteristically sloppy - as in 40 unforced errors sloppy.
