Serbia's Novak Djokovic takes on America Bjorn Fratangelo in the second round of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells on 13 March (Sunday).

Where to watch

The match is expected to start at 11.30pm GMT. Live coverage of the game in the UK is available on Sky Sports 3 and Sky Sports 3 HD. Live scores and real time updates are available on the ATP World Tour's official website.

Overview

World No 1 Djokovic, the favourite, saw his streak of 17 consecutive tournament finals end in the Dubai Open in February where he was forced to retire due to an eye infection. Having received a bye in the first round, the 28-year-old comes into this game well-rested and will be looking to get back into his groove. Indian Wells also features Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal, so Djokovic will be looking to get some practice before he reaches the business end of the tournament.

Fratangelo beat Russian Teymuraz Gabashvli 6-4, 6-4 to progress to the second round but with a world ranking of 149, he is not expected to challenge the Serbian. The American is yet to win an ATP title and will be hoping that Djokovic has a bad day if he has to go past him.
