Novak lost 6-7(3) 6-4 1-6 to Taro Daniel in the second round of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells on Sunday.
Novak: “I’d like to congratulate my opponent for fighting and showing great, great spirit on the court. For me it felt like first match I ever played on tour. Very weird. I mean, I just completely lost my rhythm. But I was grateful to be out on the court that quickly after surgery.”
