Novak Djokovic suffers 'weird' loss to qualifier at Indian Wells

Novak Djokovic suffers 'weird' loss to qualifier at Indian Wells

The 12-time major victor led 5-2 in the opener, but Daniel fought back well to clinch the first set on a tie-break, and although Djokovic pulled level, 61 unforced errors from the five-time champion saw Daniel clinch victory after two-and-a-half hours.

"When you do come back from injury or when you haven't played in a long time, it just takes extra effort. It's maybe just odd to hear that from such a champion, you know, that he also feels that way".

The fact that the young American had never won a WTA-level match until this week validates how much fearless and confident she was while facing one of the most in-form players on the WTA Tour. That give you a little bit of breathe.

He added, "Very weird". Whereas, here now you play the same guy the next day, so you can really compare, you know, how different conditions are.

"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. So I just went for it and it went well. "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". I was able to stay pretty tough, so I'm pretty proud of that. Federer is the all-time leader in total number of weeks at No. 1 with 305 and 19 more than No. 2 Pete Sampras.
