Federer launches bid for sixth Indian Wells title

Nadal, a three-time champion at Indian Wells, was typically merciless, hitting 18 winners and 10 unforced errors in his victory.

"Honestly, a double break is not ideal against a great server, especially a left-handed server".

Naomi Osaka's ascent to tennis' summit began last March when she claimed her first WTA title at Indian Wells and, while the world No. 1 has since clinched two successive Grand Slams, the Californian event remains her sole victory outside of the majors. "After that, things went better for me", added Djokovic, who loped over to share a word with U.S. great Pete Sampras in the stands after wrapping up the victory in one hour and 29 minutes.

"To be honest, I was a bit nervous in the beginning", said Djokovic, who is going for a record sixth Indian Wells title.

Mladenovic's 94-minute victory booked her a blockbuster clash with Australian Open champion Osaka after she upstaged the Japanese star at the Dubai Tennis Championships in February.

Today we were lethargic in the first 10-15 minutes, we did not have the zip and we did not take the chances. Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher had their weekly lovers tiff as they argued over David de Gea's blunder.

Former world number Rafael Nadal says his only regret in recent times is to not have competed well against Novak Djokovic in the final of the 2019 Australian Open two months ago. The 29-year-old was not at his best, but credit for that goes to Mannarino, whose flat groundstrokes neutralised Nishikori's attempted offence, and kept the World No. 7 from exerting his game.

Roger Federer also said he is anxious for the sport in the court due to what is happening away from it. What I am happy about is that we are aligned and we agree that we should be talking and coming up with a proper plan.

"It was such a weird match", Kvitova said, calling it her worst of the year. "On the other hand, I started the season very well".

Donaldson could only take three games against Nadal in their only previous meeting in Shanghai in 2017, but he was unable to match even that. "I served really well today, so that was obviously a big key". "I was so frustrated with myself from the half of the second set to the end, which shouldn't happen to me", she further explained.

Of the 16 seeds in action, 10 managed to get through.

He briefly explained his intimate understanding of Kingsbury's Air Raid offense and said uniting with Kingsbury would be "nice". I just show up and do what I'm supposed to do. "Obviously generous words from him". "But that's the relationship".

Danielle Collins - the 25th seed - awaits Flipkens.

On Sunday, Serena Williams returns to take on Garbine Muguruza in the headline match as the third round gets underway. I think I did that in the Australian Open.

The latter had won the Mexican Open last week.

Pliskova next faces another qualifier, Belgian Ysaline Bonaventure, who defeated 28th-seeded Donna Vekic of Croatia 1-6, 7-6 (7/5), 6-4.
