Del Potro puts health over winning — Miami Open

Miami Open: Roger Federer's Aim For The Tournament Is To Retain His World No 1 Status

The 36-year-old Swiss star needs to advance to the quarter-finals in Florida to hold on to his number one ranking, or face being supplanted by old rival Rafael Nadal in top spot. "I just feel like the one I play right now, RF97, is just easier to play on every single day", Federer was quoted as saying by Express.

After the defeat, he added: "I decided not to play the clay season". "You have to keep on training, evolving, trying to improve your game".

It was a dominant performance from the world No.175, who lost just three games in the 6-2 6-1 rout. His last Grand Slam title came in 2016, beating Andy Murray to win his first French Open and complete his career Grand Slam. He was a bit more relaxed.

Six-time champion Novak Djokovic "ran out of gas" in a 6-3, 6-4 loss to Benoit Paire on Friday in his ATP Miami Masters opener. I never got going. There are few, if any, players more adept at hitting from corner to corner. "My opponent played well".

The loss will cost Federer No. 1 when the new rankings come out Monday.

The 6-foot-5 Kokkinakis has long been regarded as a promising talent thanks to a thunderous serve and forehand, but has been plagued by injuries.

"Yeah, against him, he's been super nice to me". "I took what I learned from him and sort of kind of knew how he played a little bit". He's been real supportive.

The setback to Del Potro was Federer's only loss in an otherwise stellar 2018. "I'm pretty happy about it".

Speaking afterwards, Federer said there were no excuses. "He's been to Dubai to practice with me a couple of times". We have worked very hard together.

India's Yuki Bhambri lost 6-3, 7-6 (3) to American Jack Sock in the second round.

"That game I knuckled down and put pressure on him", Kokkinakis said.

'I'm a positive thinker. It's unfortunate how it goes.

"I'm not at the level that I used to be".

"I deserve it after this match", he said.

So what of the men's pursuit of that golden prize? Again, there's obviously that difficulty trying to bring that to a match court. I'm aware of that.

"Yeah, I mean, everyone is human".

The big-serving Australian Thanasi Kokkinakis, a qualifier ranked 175th, rallied to upset Federer, 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (4). Osaka said began feeling ill before the match but didn't want to retire after upsetting eight-time champion Serena Williams in the first round.

Kei Nishikori of Japan, who defeated Australia's John Millman 7-6, 4-6, 6-3, awaits for Del Potro in the next round. The world #1's serve is unquestionably his most important shot. "Then I just ran out of gas".
