Rain wreaks havoc for Roger Federer at Indian Wells

Rain wreaks havoc for Roger Federer at Indian Wells

Though Djokovic came back to win the second set and celebrated with a once-trademarked roar, he went out with his latest whimper, losing 7-6 (3), 4-6, 6-1. "That is as head scratching as anything you'll see".

British number one Kyle Edmund was beaten in straight sets by Israel's Dudi Sela 6-4 6-4 in his first match since reaching the Australian Open semi-finals.

Playing for a third consecutive day due to weather delays in Indian Wells, the 36-year-old Swiss showed no sign of wear in the 58 minutes he took in the 6-2, 6-1 thrashing of the Serb in the pair's first ever meeting.

"Very weird - I just completely lost rhythm", Djokovic said.

Other teams who will play in Wichita are Seton Hall, North Carolina State, San Diego State, Houston, Michigan and Montana. Vladimir Brodziansky and Kenrich Williams make up one of the most under-valued frontcourts in college basketball.

World number one Roger Federer barely raised a sweat en route to the last 16 at Indian Wells, while Dominic Thiem succumbed to injury. The 12-time Major victor was beaten in the fourth round of the Australian Open in January after his elbow troubles had kept him out of action since the 2017 Wimbledon Championships. He had surgery in Switzerland shortly after that. 'I think it speaks to my strengths on court, which is just being clutch and playing my best tennis in the big moments'.

But Federer is refusing to become complacent in his quest for a record sixth Indian Wells title and says he must "stay sharp" to come out on top.

Kevin Anderson put on a serving masterclass as he saw off Nicolas Kicker 7-6 (7-1) 7-6 (7-3). "The surface doesn't react so much".

The win sets up a third-round showdown with Spaniard David Ferrer, who defeated Tennys Sandgren of the U.S. 6-2, 7-6 (7-3).

Isner, the 15th seed, frittered away seven break points, while Monfils converted one of his three opportunities, which proved enough.

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.

"I was attacking when I had my chances and controlling most of the times the points", said Cilic.

Daniel's reward is a third-round match with Leonardo Mayer after his opponent Kei Nishikori pulled out through illness. "I have been sick for over a week and tried everything I could to get better".
