Rain halts Federer's opening match at Indian Wells

Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal claim made by Dominic Thiem - Federer fans won't like it

A five-time Indian Wells champion Roger Federer couldn't finish his second round match against Federico Delbonis on Saturday night, leading 6-3 2-2 before the rain halted the action and send it to Sunday.

The Serb was once the most dominant player around - winning four straight grand slam titles from 2015 to 2016 - but little of that scintillating form was on display when the 12-time grand slam victor was upset by Japanese qualifier Taro Daniel 7-6 (7-3) 4-6 6-1 in the second round in Indian Wells on Sunday. He surpassed Argentine Federico Delbonis after rain forced the Swiss tennis star a victory to wait until next morning on Sunday to clinch his first win of the tournament.
