Japanese qualifier Taro Daniel sent Novak Djokovic tumbling out in the second round of the Indian Wells Masters with a 7-6, 4-6, 6-1 win on Sunday. It was another snag in the return for the Djokovic, 30, who admitted he was out of sorts while playing in just his second event of 2018. He is making a cautious return after an right elbow injury in 2017.

"For me it felt like first match I ever played on the tour. Very weird," Djokovic said. "I mean, I just completely lost rhythm, everything. Just struggled also a little bit with the health the last couple of weeks."
