Tennis-Del Potro ends Federer 2018 unbeaten run with Indian Wells victory

March 18 (Reuters) - Big serving Argentine Juan Martin del Potro handed world number one Roger Federer his first loss of the year with a tense 6-4 6-7(8) 7-6(2) victory in the BNP Paribas Open final at Indian Wells on Sunday.

The defending champion had chalked up 17 consecutive wins in 2018, a run which included the Swiss winning his 20th grand slam title at the Australian Open, before his defeat by Del Potro. (Reporting by Gene Cherry in Salvo, North Carolina, editing by Pritha Sarkar)
