The fact that very few people were surprised to see Novak Djokovic lose to Benoit Paire in the second round of the Miami Open goes to show just how far he has fallen in the last two years. His primary physical problem is a right elbow injury, which kept him off the court for the past six months of a year ago and required what Djokovic's camp refers to as a "small medical intervention" after the Australian Open in January.
Federer's defeat means he will relinquish his status as world No.1 with Rafael Nadal set for a return to the head of the rankings on April 2.
In other matches, Denis Shapovalov beat Viktor Troicki 6-3 6-7 (7-4) 7-6 (8-6), Steve Johnson defeated Victor Estrella Burgos 6-3 6-3, Guillermo Garcia-Lopez eliminated Tennys Sandgren 7-6 (7-3) 7-6 (8-6) and Leonardo Mayer proved too strong for Donald Young, winning 3-6 6-4 6-2.
It is Djokovic's third consecutive defeat since he reached the Australian Open fourth round in January.
For Benoite Paire though, who lost to little-known American Mitchell Kruger in Indian Wells, this is a big opportunity, as he progresses to the third round to face another Serb-Filip Krajinovic.
"Well, I just feel like - so there are three frames". Just it's impossible at the moment. "I love playing on the hard court". I want to be able to play as well as I want to play. I'm aware of that.
