Novak Djokovic makes 'weird' revelation after early defeat at Indian Wells Masters

Sela also took the second set by the same score to seal a 6-4 6-4 victory in 91 minutes against world number 24 Edmund, who replaced the injured Andy Murray as British number one earlier this month.

Federer improved to 65-5 since returning from a left knee injury past year with his third-round victory in a rare day match.

Federer, the defending champion and five-time victor, needed just 58 minutes to wrap up a 6-2 6-1 victory. Djokovic sprinted out to a 5-2 lead against the 25-year-old from Japan, but his mistakes began to add up and he finished with 58 unforced errors.

But Djokovic fell at the first hurdle with a shock loss to Japanese qualifier Taro Daniel, who sent the out-of-sorts Serb tumbling with a hard-fought 7-6 (7/3) 4-6 6-1 victory.

Roger Federer, of Switzerland, returns a shot against Jack Sock during an exhibition tennis match in San Jose, California.

He said it felt like the "first match I ever played on the tour".

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




The 36-year old served up six aces and gave up just three points on serve in the whole match.

Another surprise victor was Cyprus' Marcos Baghdatis, who beat Argentina's Diego Schwartzman, who is seeded 14th, 7-5, 6-4.

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.

In the women's section at Indian Wells, Simona Halep took pride in rallying past 19-year-old Caroline Dolehide, while Petra Kvitova's remarkable win streak skidded to a halt against another U.S. teen.

"I was grateful to be out on the court after surgery that quickly".

"It feels insane. I mean, I'm still in shock", Anisimova said. So it was definitely nerve-wracking kind of, but I was enjoying it so much out there and I was playing my best.
