Federer advances, Djokovic crashes out
World number one Roger Federer finished off Federeico Delbonis in a rain-disrupted match on Sunday to reach the third round at Indian Wells as five-time champion Novak Djokovic was toppled.Federer returned to stadium court on Sunday afternoon and needed an hour to finish off his second round victory 6-3, 7-6 (8/6). "It's been a long time since I have been interrupted at night and have to come back the next day," Federer said. "
His title defense got off to a soggy start Saturday night when play was suspended because of rain showers with Federer up a set and tied 2-2 in the second. The clouds rolled in just before the start of their match on Saturday and after a short delay to start the first set they managed to play until the skies blackened and the heavy rains came in the second.
