Federer advances, Djokovic crashes out at Indian Wells

But world number one Federer, who won his own contest with Federico Delbonis, had expected that Djokovic would find it tough getting back into the swing of things on the ATP Tour.

There aren't many players who can say they have a winning record over 20 time Grand Slam victor Federer but Delbonis is one of them.

The top seed fended off a set point in the tie-break to beat Delbonis 6-3, 7-6 (6).

The Swiss star had won the first set when rain halted the second-round clash a day earlier and, while he did not have it all his own way when play resumed, he was still largely comfortable in advancing. After another 90-minute delay organisers suspended play for the night.

Djokovic was makings his first appearance since being stunned by Hyeon Chung at the Australian Open. "For me it felt like first match I ever played on the tour", Djokovic said after his defeat, as quoted by ATP's official website. "Very weird. I mean, I just completely lost rhythm, everything". Also have a Foundation trip I'm doing at that time, so I'm planning that a little bit.

"I was feeling like he was not loving my slice and I was also mixing in dropshots", said Federer who extended his ideal record this season to 14-0.

Djokovic had four aces but served poorly overall, finishing with four double faults, and the Serbian made 62 unforced errors in total.

He then took Federer to deuce in the next game.

"I haven't really checked out my draw entirely", he said. So when you play that way and you feel that way, you can't right away think, "Oh, who would I be playing in the semis or in the finals"? When you do come back from injury or when you haven't played in a long time, it just takes extra effort.
