It was Djokovic's first appearance since the Australian Open after undergoing a minor surgery to fix an ongoing elbow injury, but it lasted just two and a half hours as he was knocked out by the 109 ranked Japanese 7-6, 4-6, 6-1.

Roger Federer (SUI) during his third round match against Filip Krajinovic (not pictured) in the BNP Paribas Open at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden. However, apart from the physical struggles Federer had to face questions about his future in the sport during his absence, which is not the same for the Serb.

"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".

"Obviously having only played a couple of matches in nine months, you're still, in a way, battling inside of your mind whether you're fit or not", said the Serbian, a five-times champion here.

Case Keenum to sign with Broncos
There were some things that we should have done that we should have done differently that we didn't do. In an NFC Divisional round win over the Saints, Keenum threw for 318 yards and one touchdown.

One of the biggest shocks of the early results came in the women's draw, where in-form Kvitova saw her excellent run halted by 16-year-old wild card Anisimova.

"It felt like the first match I have ever played on the tour, very weird", the 12-times grand slam champion told reporters. A number of former players and experts doubted if Federer could get back to his best and called for him to call time on his illustrious career.

The Swiss legend paints brushstrokes on the court with his artistry. The good news is Chardy won 42 of 48 first serve points in his last match, so as long as he gets it in play, he's going to be a tough out.

Djokovic took six months off after Wimbledon previous year and returned at January's Australian Open, where he lost in the fourth round. "Is this over? I never had that", Federer said, as quoted by the Express. "Unfortunately today I am still not strong enough", he wrote. "I was too close to still beating the best", he said. Anything less and Spaniard Rafael Nadal - who is not playing this week due to a right hip injury - would reclaim that title.
