Indian Wells Masters: Novak Djokovic knocked out by Taro Daniel

The tournament's 32 seeds all received first-round byes.

Djokovic had further surgery on a persistent elbow injury in February. The Melbourne event was Djokovic's first since Wimbledon last summer, as he was sidelined due to the elbow ailment that ultimately led to the operation.

"For me it felt like first match I ever played on the tour". "I'd like to congratulate my opponent for fighting and showing great, great spirit on the court", said Djokovic. "I mean, I just completely lost rhythm, everything". Even though I served my five aces yesterday, none today.

"I have been sick for over a week and tried everything I could to get better".

Novak Djokovic produced a puzzling performance as the former world number one lost to Japanese qualifier Taro Daniel in the second round at the BNP Paribas Open in California on Sunday. They previously clashed in the final of the Buenos Aires Challenger past year, with Daniel rallying for a three-set win.

Thiem has already won a tour-leading 17 matches this season, but he had to work hard to beat 19-year-old Tsitsipas, who reached the quarter-finals in Dubai last week and is ranked 71st in the world. Once the third set began, it didn't take long for most observers to realize that it was Daniel's match to lose.

In some of the other matches of the day, second seed and Australian Open runner-up Marin Cilic edged a tight first set and then raced through the second for a 7-5, 6-3 win over Marton Fucsovics. Federer, who earned his fifth title at Indian Wells a year ago, saved a set point in the second-set tiebreaker and advanced to face Filip Krajinovic on Monday.

Holder Roger Federer avoided the same fate as Djokovic, though the Swiss top seed was pushed by left-handed Argentine Federico Delbonis in a match that was completed on Sunday after being halted by rain at 2-2 in the second set the previous day.

North leads Wales victory over Italy
Hadleigh Parkes , Cory Hill and Justin Tipuric also crossed over as a much-changed Wales side put in a dominant display. Ireland beat Scotland 28-8 and was crowned champion on Saturday after title rival England was beaten by France, 22-16.

The score was deadlocked at 2-2 after 20-time grand slam champion Federer gracefully claimed the opening set 6-3 before rain wreaked havoc and suspended proceedings on Saturday.

But at a time when top players are continuing to excel deep into their thirties - Roger Federer is back at No. 1 at age 36 - it is easy to overlook the re-emergence of the prodigies. It was actually quite interesting.

"The nighttime is much deader". The surface doesn't react so much. Djokovic had four aces but overall he served poorly making four double faults and winning just 65 percent of his first-serve points.

Eighth seed Jack Sock, 18th seed Sam Querrey, 32nd seed Milos Raonic all progressed into the third round. Daniel defeated Djokovic 7-6 (7/3), 4-6, 6-1 in the hard-fought victory.
