Federer moves on, Stephens loses again at Indian Wells

Federer moves on, Stephens loses again at Indian Wells

The 12-time major victor led 5-2 in the opener, but Daniel fought back well to clinch the first set on a tie-break, and although Djokovic pulled level, 61 unforced errors from the five-time champion saw Daniel clinch victory after two-and-a-half hours.

Djokovic, who won the Indian Wells event in 2008, 2011, 2014, 2015 and 2016, was knocked out early for the second year in a row.

New York Times tennis writer Christopher Clarey said the Serbian's "crisis continues" as he searches for his first grand slam title since the French Open in 2016.

Federer returned to stadium court on Sunday afternoon and needed an hour to finish off his second round victory 6-3, 7-6 (8/6).

"Filip's wasn't so good and then things go quickly", Federer, who hit 24 winners, told Sky Sports in his on-court interview.

Djokovic underwent right elbow surgery after falling in the fourth round of the Australian Open in January.

"I played the best set of the whole match, and that was really good". "I mean, I had no expectations", said Djokovic.

Djokovic bounced back in the second, but Daniel took advantage of his opponent's poor form to win the third.

He had four aces but served poorly overall, making four double faults.

Daniel, speaking on the biggest win of his career, said, "It's kind of hard to describe.I can't believe I beat someone like that on the center court like this; it's insane".

"You're still battling inside of your mind", he added, referencing his recent elbow surgery.

The 36-year-old Federer said he had a little fatigue early in the 1 p.m. match but still had his explosiveness. Daniel went up 4-1 in the tiebreak before Djokovic got the minibreak back.

Frenchman Gael Monfils survived a match point before beating big-serving American John Isner 6-7 (5) 7-6 (3) 7-5 in a contest that had only one break.

Borna Coric of Croatia upset 13th seed Roberto Bautista Agut 6-1 6-3 and Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta defeated Daniil Medvedev 6-1 7-5.

Spanish veterans David Ferrer and Feliciano Lopez recorded routine straight-sets wins over Tennys Sandgren and Ernesto Escobedo respectively while Philipp Kohlschreiber outlasted Tim Smyczek.
