Federer wins rain-delayed match

"Federer said", It's been a long time since I have been interrupted at night and have to come back the next day".

In a rain-affected encounter that saw the match start on Sunday (AEST) and resume on Monday, the players were forced off the court due to rain in the second set with the score even at 2-2.

Daniel, who beat Britain's Cameron Norrie in the first round, will next meet Leonardo Mayer, who defeated Ruben Bemelmans 6-4 6-1.

Federer who is making his 17 appearance in Indian Wells will continue to win remain number one if he progresses to the semi-finals.

Sixth seed Juan Martin Del Potro took just under 70 minutes to beat Australian Alex de Minaur 6-2 6-1 and Australian Open runner-up Marin Cilic is also through after a 7-5 6-3 straight sets win over Marton Fucsovics. He denied a set point while serving down 2-5 in the opener and immediately broke the former World No. 1 in the next game, firing a backhand victor down the line and a forehand pass off a poor smash. He won the final three points to take the match by forcing Delbonis to dump all three of those shots into the net.

Dimitrov - the third seed - was the biggest casualty on Saturday after he was stunned by Spanish veteran Fernando Verdasco.

Novak Djokovic produced a puzzling performance in his loss to Japanese qualifier Taro Daniel.

"It felt like the first match I have ever played on the tour, very weird", the 12-times grand slam champion told reporters.

Federer said he understands well how even a champion like Djokovic could be struggling to find his game so soon after having surgery. "I mean, I just completely lost rhythm, everything".

After retiring during his quarterfinal match at Wimbledon last July, Djokovic did not play again for the rest of 2017 in an attempt to heal his right elbow problem without surgery. He lost to Chung Hyeon in the Australian Open fourth round in January before undergoing the surgery. The 30-year-old committed 61 unforced errors in the two-and-a-half hour match.

"It feels insane. I mean, I'm still in shock", Anisimova said.

Djokovic rebounded to level the match, but the taxing second set left the No. 10 seed looking worse for wear.

Amid a conversation with the umpire and Delbonis on court, Federer could be heard telling his Argentine opponent: "I can start but if you don't wanna start we don't have to". "When you go away from the game for over a two-month period it starts feeling a little bit that way. And I just have to work really hard and keep that motivation high to be able to win matches".

"It is still early stages for Novak coming back and the first one after surgery". Because if I change and I start to put, like, kind of like first, second serves in to try to play with first serve, but then also doesn't hurting him so much, maybe, you know, he was returning so much, like, on top of the line, if he connect two or three good returns, it was going to be tough.
