Roger Federer is stunned by Guillermo Canas after 41 wins

Roger Federer

Federer returned to stadium court on Sunday afternoon and needed an hour to close out his second-round victory 6-3, 7-6 (8/6).

In the next round, he faces Jeremy Chardy, who beat fellow Frenchman Adrian Mannarino 7-5, 4-6, 6-1.

Taro Daniel, a 109th-ranked qualifier, upset five-time Indian Wells champion Novak Djokovic 7-6 (3), 4-6, 6-1.

Federer blasted six aces, had one double fault and won 89 percent of his first serve points, losing just three points on his serve the entire match.

"I probably won't play in the very beginning, you know, meaning Monaco", he said at the Indian Wells Masters.

It was clear early that Djokovic didn't have anything close to his best game, in spite of holding a 5-2 lead in the first set.

"I just completely lost rhythm, everything, struggled a little bit with the health the last couple of weeks".

Holder Roger Federer avoided the same fate as Djokovic, though the Swiss top seed was pushed hard by Argentine Federico Delbonis in a match that was completed on Sunday after being halted by rain on Saturday.

Djokovic was makings his first appearance since being stunned by Hyeon Chung at the Australian Open. "It gave me a ton of inspiration for my upcoming matches", he said.

"And even though you don't have pain, you're still thinking about it, because it's been something that I have been feeling and dragging for over two years".

"I made so many unforced errors that it was just one of those days where you are not able to find the rhythm from the baseline, especially from the backhand side". When you do come back from injury or when you haven't played in a long time, it just takes extra effort. "He's only going to get better from here".

"For me it felt like the first match I ever played on the Tour", said Djokovic.

South African seventh seed Kevin Anderson also prevailed in his second round match, 7-5 6-4 over Russian Evgeny Donskoy.

The Serb failed to serve out the first set, growing the internal seed of doubt and emboldening Daniel, who at last year's US Open took a set from eventual champion Rafael Daniel.

Spanish veterans David Ferrer and Feliciano Lopez recorded routine straight-sets wins over Tennys Sandgren and Ernesto Escobedo respectively while Philipp Kohlschreiber outlasted Tim Smyczek.
