The Swiss regained the break and, after saving four break points to make it 4-4, he broke Gojowczyk for a 6-5 lead, the German double-faulting on break point to give Federer a chance to serve it out. It's certainly not the way Kvitova anticipated spending her birthday week in Indian Wells.

Kvitova led her fellow-Wimbledon champion 6-4, 3-0 with two breaks before the 38-year-old mounted a stunning comeback. Summing up how she felt after the match, Kvitova told reporters: "I want to swear, but I will not". The relationship I have with this event is very special.

"I want to have a lighter schedule in order to come prepared and have a longer career as possible".

Understandably she admitted she was frustrated with herself.

"It was such a weird match, to be honest". I think maybe from this perspective, I could have, should have made a different decision, but I believe it also taught me some valuable lessons that helped me to create awesome results in the next seven, eight months and get from 22 in the world to No. 1 in the world in less than six months.

"Well, I mean, I really used to just dislike night matches because you're, like, the last one there, and honestly I sleep kind of early", Osaka addressed the press of the Indian Wells 2019. Then at the start of the year, I had a little strain on my thigh and I could not play in Brisbane.

"I thought the match started at 8.00pm", he added.

"Suddenly I made two double faults, which I can't do that in such an intense match".

"I've never been a defending champion before, that's new and I was really nervous".

"That's what I lost today".

"I believe in myself". I was with Novak in Monte Carlo last spring, talking about everything, and I said to [Marian] Vajda, Jelena [Djokovic], Artaldi and Novak himself that it is only a question of time when he will return to the top. Kvtiova and Williams have now met seven times and each of their matches has gone the distance. "We've always been aware of his qualities and talent, and he's got big weapons in his game: serve, obviously one of the best serves on the Tour; big forehand and can play well on different surfaces". We always play three-setters matches, and suddenly we have been there again and playing until the end. He arrived at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden anxious to play, despite his team telling him to rest. Because he was serving better he started to swing more freely and then it was tough. After an early break, she appeared re-energized as she jolted the crowd alive with inspired play.
