World number two Novak Djokovic rallied to beat Roger Federer in a three-set thriller on Sunday to win his first title of 2014 at the Indian Wells ATP Masters.
Djokovic defeated Federer 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7/3) to add a third title in the California desert to those he captured in 2008 and 2011.
"I'm just very happy and thrilled to be able to win the first title in this season," Djokovic said. "I played, three, four matches in three sets, a couple of matches had to come from a set down. Mentally this definitely helps my confidence."
