Djokovic, Osaka earn victories at Indian Wells

Nadal regrets no rivalry with Djokovic

A five-time champion at Indian Wells, Djokovic was pushed early before getting past Bjorn Fratangelo.

"Honestly, a double break is not ideal against a great server, especially a left-handed server. The preparation prior to the Australian Open was good because I had trained well but I did not play matches".

"She has been playing so well and you never know what's going to come off her racket", Williams said in front of a fawning crowd in her native Southern California.

The 38-year-old was trailing by a set and double break down when she pulled off a stunning comeback to register a 4-6, 7-5, 6-4 win over No.3 seed Kvitova of Czech Republic in a thrilling clash that lasted almost two-and-a-half hours.

Rafael Nadal has claimed that the only regret of his recent tennis performances has been his failure to rival Novak Djokovic in the final of the Australian Open. "That is the big thing I worry about", Roger Federer said, as reported by the Indian Express.

"I was playing really aggressive", Kerber said.

"He had an unbelievable backhand cross pass, and we played a really long point ..."

"It was such a weird match, to be honest".

"I think we really need to figure it out and we need to get the pulse of where we are about to go".

I have to be careful not to push this, to give him a chance to get in game shape. "His knee is going to be OK", Krzyzewski said. Wade's One Last Dance tour made a stop at Duke's Cameron Indoor Stadium, even though Williamson wasn't on the court.

But Tsitsipas could find no answer to Auger-Aliassime, who broke early in the first to gain the upper hand and seized a 2-1 lead with the first of two breaks in the second.

"It was a tough battle, fighting, staying there physically, tennis-wise, mentally also", said Wawrinka, a three-time Grand Slam champion and former world number three who said it's the kind of match that will take his comeback to the next level.

The American was up a break in the first set and also ahead in the tie-break, but he was unable to deny the world number one.

"I struggled a little bit with my serving in that second set and that gave him chances".

Nishikori could get another Frenchman in the third round, when he will face either 30th-seeded Lucas Pouille or 67th-ranked Hubert Hurkacz of Poland.

Osaka will take on Danielle Collins next.

The Serbian will next face Philipp Kohlschreiber, the German having upset 31st seed Nick Kyrgios. "The political side of the game has to do that but I think I would like to take a role to some extent in as much time as I have just to be part of the process".

Few people will be able to believe that he won the match in such a devastating manner after learning that he turned up late.
