INDIAN WELLS - For once, Roger Federer couldn't find a way to get the win.

INDIAN WELLS - For once, Roger Federer couldn't find a way to get the win.

The world No 1, playing his first tournament since winning his 16th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open, was philosophical after falling to Marcos Baghdatis in the third round of the Indian Wells Masters 1000, squandering three match points in the process.

"I think it wasn't the worst match," Federer said. "I did many good things but also many bad things. It's just a question of not letting that happen too often."

Federer had been slated to play the Dubai Open in February, but withdrew with a lung infection.

"I just couldn't find the way to win," said Federer. "I was maybe one shot away. That's how much it takes sometimes. I think as the tournament would have gone forward I would have found my groove more and more, and who knows what would have happened?

"It was a decent match, but maybe wrong choices at the wrong time for me. Maybe going for too much, maybe playing too passively. That's not something you can really work on. That comes through playing matches, and that's what I need." - Sapa-AFP
