  • Roger Federer Rafael Nadal Djokovic explain why they keep playing

Naomi Osaka, who started her Paribas Open title campaign with a win over Kristina Mladenovic, said that she learns more from losses than victories.

Stunned by Mladenovic in Dubai last month, Osaka had no such problems in California, claiming a 6-3 6-4 victory in the second round.

After Mladenovic held serve to narrow the deficit to 5-4, the Japanese player faced another break point before wrapping up the match after 1 hour 21 minutes.

Her surprise triumph at Indian Wells a year ago launched a 2018 campaign that would eventually include her first Grand Slam crown with a victory at the U.S. Open.

Osaka next faces Danielle Collins, the 25th-seeded American who beat Belgian Kirsten Flipkens, 6-4, 6-1.

Djokovic sprinted over to the stands to shake hands with his idol, 14-times Grand Slam champion Pete Sampras, immediately after the 7-6 (7-5) 6-2 win.

McHale won her match 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 against Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.

Despite Kvitova firing down 10 aces, it was nullified, as she also hit ten double faults, gifting Williams the free points.

Novak Djokovic made a winning return to the ATP Tour, beating Bjorn Fratangelo in the Indian Wells Masters second round on Saturday.

Describing the clash as "weird", Kvitova said that she took the first set and was nearly leading the second set comfortable when Williams somehow made an incredible return to eventually snatch the win.

"To be honest, I was a bit nervous in the beginning, I didn't play my best". "I just learned to be really positive and not give her anything".

The 38-year-old veteran American broke the Czech once more in the match's final game, letting loose with a euphoric scream as she sealed one of her most impressive victories in recent memory.

"I had to undergo surgery and a lot of things happened. We always play three-setters, and suddenly, we have been there again and playing until the end, and in the end of the match, she definitely played better than me", she said of Williams. "I just had to acquaint myself with the new sensations, mental, physical, emotional, and it was all a great learning curve for me".

He'll play Guido Pella, who ended the hopes of another Aussie qualifier, Alex Bolt, 7-6 (7/5), 2-6, 6-3.

Barthel's compatriot Angelique Kerber was almost ideal en route to a 6-0 6-2 dismantling of Yulia Putintseva, winning 93 percent of her first service points under sunny skies in the Southern California desert.
