Indian Wells: Novak Djokovic produced a puzzling performance as the former World No.1 lost to Japanese qualifier Taro Daniel in the second round of the BNP Paribas Open tennis tournament, here Sunday.
Federer and 10th seed Djokovic both came into the tournament seeking to become the first six-time victor of the event. "But at the same time, just didn't feel good at all".
Daniel came in as a qualifier.
If the surgery wasn't enough, Djokovic looked like he had been suffering from illness on the eve of Indian Wells.
"Warming up this morning, I was like, "crap, this court is really big". The win is the biggest for the 25-year-old Indian.
"He obviously wasn't in his top form", Daniel said.
Federer staved off a set point in the second set tie-break to beat Delbonis 6-3 7-6 (8-6) and he will face 25th-seed Filip Krajinovic in the third round on Monday. I was able to stay pretty tough, so I'm pretty proud of that.
In other men's matches, Juan Martin del Potro steamed his way into the third round as the sixth seed needed just 69 minutes to beat Australian teenager Alex de Minaur 6-2, 6-1.
The five-time Indian Wells champion regained his composure and the momentum by breaking for a 4-3 lead in the second, only to again struggle to get the job done.
However, Daniel bounced back as he won the third set comfortably to clinch the match.
The New York-born Japanese went toe-to-toe with Djokovic in the long rallies, and would fire a down-the-line backhand every now and then that wowed the day session crowd.
Daniels admitted Djokovic wasn't at his usual levels.

The Sun quoted a source who claimed that the new royal baby will arrive on the feast day of England's patron saint. In the past, scientists have linked the so-called "digit ratio" to a whole host of seemingly unrelated traits.
The Serb broke for 4-3 and it was all he needed to level the match as he secured the second set with a down-the-line backhand victor.
Israeli Dudi Sela beat British 21st seed Edmund 6-4 6-4, while Luxemburg's 24th seed Giles Muller was upset by Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert 6-3 7-5.
"I see where he's coming from".
"Yeah, I mean, I haven't been playing that well on the practice, as well".
'I was not even supposed to be here because of the surgery that was only five, six weeks ago.
"I think it's only (a matter of) time to get where he deserves to be", said Del Potro.
The Serbian hit 61 unforced errors during the match.
"Just some inexplicable, uncharacteristic errors".
"To me, it's not that surprising", Federer said.
It was the former world No.1's first match since returning from an injury, which forced him to undergo a surgery earlier in February. "You don't have pain, but you're still thinking about it".
The numero uno player returned to the court on Sunday to close out a 6-3, 7-6 (6) win, that helped extend his 2018 winning streak to 13 matches.
"I did put myself into a position to win the tournament, you never know what can happen in these tournaments". "I didn't serve too good today but overall I'm pleased". "Especially, you know, in a crowd like this, it's pretty fantastic to do it, and I'm pretty happy... it's going to be a huge win for my career in the future, for sure".
