Federer rolls into fourth round of Indian Wells

"Very weird. I mean, I just completely lost rhythm, everything".

"I stopped doing it eventually but it was good for a spell".

Daniel was victorious after two hours and 30 minutes and benefitted from 61 unforced errors from Djokovic, who has won 12 Grand Slam singles titles. Also have a Foundation trip I'm doing at that time, so I'm planning that a little bit.

Federer blasted six aces, had one double fault and won 89 percent of his first serve points, losing just three points on his serve the entire match.

In other men's matches, Argentine Juan Martin del Potro beat Australian teenager Alex de Minaur 6-2 6-1 and set up a third-round showdown with Spaniard David Ferrer, who defeated Tennys Sandgren of the U.S. 6-2 7-6 (7/3).

"The plan wasn't to hit drop shots", Federer said.

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).

But instead of passing to Korver for a 3-pointer, James flicked the ball nonchalantly for the easy basket at the rim. Just take a look at the ridiculous no-look pass he threw to Ante Zizic in the second quarter.

Federer is making his 17th appearance in the California desert and is assured of remaining world No1 if he makes it to the semifinals.

American Amanda Anisimova took down two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova 6-2, 6-4 in a match lasting just over an hour to become the first 16-year-old to move into the fourth round at Indian Wells since Viktoriya Kutuzova in 2005.

Federer said he understands well how even a champion like Djokovic could be struggling to find his game so soon after having surgery.

"It feels insane. I mean, I'm still in shock", Anisimova said. "So talking about faster, I just think there is more bounce to it, especially if you play someone who has a lot of spin like he has and kicks the ball around a lot".

Speaking to the media after the match, Djokovic said, "It felt like my first match on tour". "I have been sick for over a week and tried everything I could to get better".

"But it's not easy to deal with this kind of frustrations after injuries or when you always be the favorite to win a tournament, you come here and you lose in first round".

Nishikori withdrew from the Australian Open earlier this year with a right wrist injury. I'm very sorry as I love this tournament.
