Daniel reflects over huge win against Djokovic

Djokovic was beaten 7-6 (7-3) 4-6 6-1 by qualifier Taro Daniel in one of the tournament's big shocks on Sunday, having been out of action since the Australian Open due to surgery on an elbow problem.

Roger Federer rolled past No. 25 seed Filip Krajinovic 6-2, 6-1 in pursuit of a record sixth BNP Paribas Open title, while Sloane Stephens remained mired in her post-U.S.

In Indian Wells, the Swiss has won five times (2004, 2005, 2006, 2012 and 2017) and was a finalist in 2014 and 2015, both times defeated by Serbian Novak Djokovic.

Federer, who had looked slightly off his game in his rain-disrupted third round match against Federico Delbonis, was his dominant self Monday, winning 89 percent of his first service points while cracking six aces to just one double fault.

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

Djokovic was makings his first appearance since being stunned by Hyeon Chung at the Australian Open.

"Definitely, I think it's motivating", Anisimova said in an interview last week. "And even though you don't have pain, you are still thinking about it because it's something I've been feeling and dragging for over two years".

There's a good chance the always-aggressive Elway wants to take another swing at the quarterback position in this year's draft . With Keenum gone, Minnesota's primary focus will likely shift to making sure Kirk Cousins signs with them this offseason.

The Serb concedes that being sidelined for so long and struggling with a lengthy injury is new to him and he says he spoke to his countryman Viktor Troicki about how he dealt with his return to the game after getting suspended by the ITF for refusing to take a drugs test. "I just feel like today we're all so good on clay, grass, and hard courts, if you get on a roll you can rack up some titles".

Up to 7 courts, including the biggest matches of each day. But I recovered very quickly, and I got myself ready.

"It is still early stages for Novak coming back and the first one after surgery".

Federer said on Thursday that he won't be taking anyone for granted in this draw.

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

American Taylor Fritz enjoyed a comeback victory over Fernando Verdasco 4-6, 6-2, 7-6 (1). "I felt I was too close to winning".
