Indian Wells: Federer dispatches Krajinovic to advance to fourth round

Japan's world No. 109 Taro Daniel pulled off a major upset Sunday at the BNP Paribas Open by beating Serbia's Novak Djokovic in the second round.

World number one Roger Federer finished off Federico Delbonis in a rain-disrupted match on Sunday to reach the third round at Indian Wells as five-time champion Novak Djokovic was toppled.

Serbian champion Djokovic was making a return from elbow surgery.

After securing a fifth break, Federer served out in ruthless fashion against the deflated 26-year-old in their first meeting.

Like during his 6-2 6-1 win over Filip Krajinovic in the last 32 at Indian Wells on Monday night when he made a decision to throw in a little exhibition of how much spin he can deploy with his backhand.

Djokovic took six months off after Wimbledon a year ago and returned in January's Australian Open where he lost in the fourth round.

"Definitely, I think it's motivating", Anisimova said in an interview last week.

Djokovic had further surgery on a persistent elbow injury in February. "When you go away from the game for over a two-month period it starts feeling a little bit that way".

But at a time when top players are continuing to excel deep into their thirties - Roger Federer is back at No. 1 at age 36 - it is easy to overlook the re-emergence of the prodigies.

"I was grateful to be out on the court after surgery that quickly but at the same time just didn't feel good at all".

"When you go from night to day [you are usually] playing a different opponent - so, naturally, it's all a change", said Federer.

"You can't really look ahead to semi-finals, finals and speculate about who you could play", he told reporters.

Kevin Anderson put on a serving masterclass as he saw off Nicolas Kicker 7-6 (7-1) 7-6 (7-3). "I'm glad I get the chance to play while she" still playing".

"I have been sick for over a week and tried everything I could to get better", the world number 25 was quoted as saying on the tournament's Twitter account. "I felt I was too close to winning". "Especially, you know, in a crowd like this, it's pretty awesome to do it, and I'm pretty happy... it's going to be a huge win for my career in the future, for sure".
