Novak Djokovic ousted in Indian Wells

Novak Djokovic ousted in Indian Wells

Roger Federer has stressed that he is not surprised after Novak Djokovic crashed out in the early stages of the 2018 Indian Wells and the world No.1 has backed the Serbian star to "only get better from here".

Federer, who led by a set when play was halted due to rain at 2-2 on Saturday night, staved off a set point in a tiebreak to beat Delbonis 6-3 7-6 (8-6).

"It felt like the first match I have ever played on the tour, very weird", Djokovic told reporters.

Second-seeded Marin Cilic of Croatia and eighth-seeded American Jack Sock both earned second-round wins in straight sets.

Novak Djokovic and British No1 Kyle Edmund suffered disappointing defeats at Indian Wells on Sunday. He was leading Argentina's Federico Delbonis 6-3, 2-2 when heavy drizzle forced the matches to be postponed. The match resumed after rain suspended play 10 March.

"I just completely lost rhythm, everything, struggled a little bit with the health the last couple of weeks".

"I never sit down with Rafa and say "let's put it on the line and talk about who is the best of all time", Federer said, as quoted by the Express. "When you go from night to day, (normally you are) playing a different opponent, so naturally, it's all a change". It was actually quite interesting.

Nadal is the only player that can challenge Federer for the Greatest of all Time (GOAT) from the current era, but the Swiss tennis legend has revealed that they do not discuss tennis when they meet but have normal conversations inquiring about each other's wellbeing. "In the night-time, the ball is much slower".

Spanish veteran Fernando Verdasco used his powerful serve to upset third seed Grigor Dimitrov 7-6 (4) 4-6 6-3 at the BNP Paribas Open on Saturday while Roger Federer's tournament debut was hampered by rain. The surface doesn't react so much. "You don't have pain, but you're still thinking about it".

Keep in mind that during his stellar start in 2017, Federer looked beatable at times.

"When you do come back from injury or when you haven't played in a long time, it just takes extra effort".

"Whereas, here, now you play the same guy the next day, so you can really compare how different conditions are". A year ago, he went on a tear, winning the Australian Open, Indian Wells and Miami - a stretch that saw him go 20-1. But while he may be revitalized physically, as far as we know, the former No. 1 showed plenty of rust in his tour return, which was central to the outcome. "It's maybe just odd to hear that from such a champion, you know, that he also feels that way".
