Roger Federer continues hot form, downs Federico Delbonis at Indian Wells


Federer and Delbonis will return to centre court on Sunday, tournament organisers confirmed. Djokovic made a comeback after a long period out of the game at the Australian Open. The Melbourne event was Djokovic's first since Wimbledon last summer, as he was sidelined due to the elbow ailment that ultimately led to the operation.

Djokovic said it felt like the "first match I ever played on the tour". I just completely lost rhythm, everything.

"I was grateful to be out on the court after surgery that quickly but at the same time just didn't feel good at all". I was not even supposed to be here because of the surgery that was only five, six weeks ago.

"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".

On its outlook for 2018, Volkswagen Group said it expects deliveries to customers to moderately exceed the prior-year figure. Witter said that the group's financial position was solid, despite the challenge posed by expenditure on the diesel scandal.

It was the earliest loss for Djokovic at Indian Wells since a first-round exit in 2006.

Thiem has already won a tour-leading 17 matches this season, but he had to work hard to beat 19-year-old Tsitsipas, who reached the quarter-finals in Dubai last week and is ranked 71st in the world.

"He obviously wasn't in his top form", Daniel said. I was able to stay pretty tough, so I'm pretty proud of that. Four games were played in the second set when the skies closed at 10:30pm local time.

Federer will face Serbia's Filip Krajinovic, a finalist at the Paris Masters in 2017, in the third round.

The remains of one more person were earlier brought down by the road. "A few of them are said to be critical", he added. It was also reported that the trekkers took another route and did not follow the trail they had paid the fee for.

Eyeing a sixth title at Indian Wells, world number one and defending champion Federer completed a 6-3 7-6 (8-6) victory over Federico Delbonis. It was actually quite interesting. Verdasco, 34, is making his 15th straight appearance in Indian Wells and trying to improve on his 2009 quarter-final run.

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.
