Japanese qualifier Taro Daniel ousts Djokovic in Indian Wells

Novak Djokovic loses to Taro Daniel

After the defeat, Djokovic admitted that he had lost his rhythm and mental edge. 10th seed and Australian Open semi-finalist Angelique Kerber fought back rain and a set loss to register a 3-6, 6-4, 6-2 win over Ekaterina Makarova.

In just his second tournament since Wimbledon a year ago - his first comeback at the Australian Open in January saw him lose in the fourth round to Hyeon Chung before he made a decision to go under the knife for a "small medical intervention" - Djokovic looked well below his best as he went down 7-6 (7-3) 4-6 6-1 to a man ranked 109 in the world.

No wonder the injury hit Djokovic uttered to reporters afterward: "For me it felt like (the) first match I ever played on the tour". "I mean, I just completely lost rhythm, everything".

Djokovic bowed out to South Korean Chung Hyeon in the fourth round of the 2018 Australian Open. He had surgery in Switzerland shortly after that.

Yeah, it's been a long time since I have been interrupted at night and have to come back the next day.' About Novak Djokovic, who lost to Taro Daniel in three sets, Federer said: 'To me, it's not that surprising, you know.

It was the former world No.1's first match since returning from an injury, which forced him to undergo a surgery earlier in February.

"The question marks surrounding his defeat today will only grow larger", Courier said in commentary on the Tennis Channel. "That is as head scratching as anything you'll see".
