Rain wreaks havoc for Federer at Indian Wells

Indian Wells Roger Federer had won the first set 6-3 before rain suspended play
Federer prevailed 6-3, 7-6 (6) in a match that was carried over from Saturday evening due to rain. He defeats Federico Delbonis in straight sets after a rain delay and tough tiebreak.
He extended his 2018 win streak to 13 matches and has only dropped three sets from 34 played this year.
Earlier, Japanese qualifier Taro Daniel sent five-time tournament champion Novak Djokovic tumbling out of the tournament with a hard-fought 7-6 (7/3), 4-6, 6-1 victory. In his first tournament since returning to the top spot of the ATP Rankings, the Swiss overcame a spirited effort from Argentina's Federico Delbonis to advance to the third round at the BNP Paribas Open on Sunday. The world No. 44 served only one double fault on her way to wrapping up the match in 1 hour, 21 minutes.
Djokovic had further surgery on a persistent elbow injury in February.
No wonder the injury hit Djokovic uttered to reporters afterward: "For me it felt like (the) first match I ever played on the tour".
Daniel, meanwhile, will face the victor of the match between the Belgian Ruben Bemelmans and the Argentine Leonardo Mayer in the third round.
"I mean, I just completely lost rhythm, everything", he said.
Djokovic scrambled to win the second set on Sunday but the rust from the layoff was evident as he made 62 unforced errors overall.
Djokovic took six months off after Wimbledon past year and returned at January's Australian Open, where he lost in the fourth round.
"To me, it's not that surprising", Federer said.
Other seeded players who lost were ninth-seeded Lucas Pouille, who fell 6-4, 6-4 to Yuki Bhambri; 14th-seeded Diego Schwartzman, 7-5, 6-4 to Marcos Baghdatis; 21st-seeded Kyle Edmund, 6-4, 6-4 to Dudi Sela; and No. 24 seed Giles Muller, 6-3, 7-5 to Pierre-Hugues Herbert.
"I have been sick for over a week and tried everything I could to get better". Krajinovic, who reached the final at the Rolex Paris Masters past year, defeated American qualifier Mitchell Krueger 6-2, 6-2 on Saturday.
