Djokovic stunned by qualifier Daniel

Djokovic stunned by qualifier Daniel

Making his ATP World Tour return after a spell out with injury, Djokovic slumped to a shock defeat against Japanese qualifier Taro Daniel.

He then announced in early February that he had undergone a "small medical intervention" on the elbow, before practicing in Las Vegas with his renown coach Andre Agassi.

After his defeat, a bemused Djokovic said: "It felt like the first match I have ever played on the tour, very weird".

The 12-time major victor led 5-2 in the opener, but Daniel fought back well to clinch the first set on a tie-break, and although Djokovic pulled level, 61 unforced errors from the five-time champion saw Daniel clinch victory after two-and-a-half hours.

"But. I was grateful to be out on the court after surgery that quickly".

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. The nighttime is much more deader. The surface doesn't react so much.

'It is interesting when you go from night to day and you play a different opponent you never - you know there is a difference, but you also know there is a difference in opponent, and he plays different', Federer said.

Bengals acquire Cordy Glenn in pick swap with Bills
In return for Glenn and one of their two first-round picks in this year's draft, the Bills will receive the 12th overall pick. In the spring of 2016, Glenn signed a $65 million contract extension with Buffalo that the Bengals will now take on.

"But he obviously wasn't in his top form, so I was able to take advantage of it". Even though I served my five aces yesterday, none today.

Federer staved off a set point in the second set tie-break to beat Delbonis 6-3 7-6 (8-6) and he will face 25th-seed Filip Krajinovic in the third round on Monday.

World No.3 Marin Cilic of Croatia on Sunday defeated Hungary's Marton Fucsovics 7-5, 6-3 to set up a third-round clash with Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber, who beat Tim Smyczek of the United States 1-6, 6-4, 6-4.

The fourth-seeded Zverev was also stunned, suffering a 7-5 5-7 6-4 loss to Sousa. "And I was able to stay pretty tough, so I'm pretty proud of that". "That is as head scratching as anything you'll see". "You know, I'm just happy that I managed to recover that quickly after surgery and just get out on the court".

He lost to 25 year-old qualifier American-born Japanese Taro Daniel in three sets, 7-6 4-6 6-1.

"I feel like when you do come back from injury or when you haven't played in a long time, it just takes extra effort".

Holder Roger Federer avoided the same fate as Djokovic, though the Swiss top seed was pushed by left-handed Argentine Federico Delbonis in a match that was completed Sunday after being halted by rain at 2-2 in the second set the previous day. He will face Gael Monfils in the next match.
