Federer's Indian Wells opener suspended due to rain

Despite the myriad achievements in his career, one moment stands out for Federer as the best match he's ever played. "When you go away from the game for over a two-month period it starts feeling a little bit that way".
"I mean, if anyone was at the match, they could see how much the crowd helped me", Fritz said, according to the Desert Sun. "Just didn't feel good at all, nerves were there".
"But, you know, after an opponent like this, to come back from two breaks down, actually, for me it was nearly impossible".
Djokovic's performance in the final set against the world's 109th-ranked player on centre court raised some eyebrows, with four-times grand slam champion Jim Courier saying the Serb had "capitulated". "So I was able to take advantage of it".
"And not to mention as well, I've played so many tournaments as a kid here. I had always suffered against him but I felt I had finally found the key and won pretty comfortably 6-0, 7-6, 6-0". But then with 40-15, I close the match.
"I knew that I just needed to keep pushing hard the serve". Now I'm 34 and I have to fight against players 21, 22, 23 that are much younger.
Amid a conversation with the umpire and Delbonis on court, Federer could be heard telling his Argentine opponent: "I can start but if you don't wanna start we don't have to".
