Indian Wells (United States) (AFP) - Rafael Nadal's Indian Wells title defence got off to a rocky start, as the world number one was forced to rally for a three-set victory over Radek Stepanek. Nadal needed nearly two and a half hours on Saturday to get past the talented Czech 2-6, 6-4, 7-5, eight double faults doing little to help his cause in the second-round clash. Wimbledon champion Andy Murray, the fifth seed, fought back from a set down against another Czech, subduing Lukas Rosol 4-6, 6-3, 6-2. The going was easier for four-time champion Roger Federer and fellow Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka, who is playing his first tournament since his Australian Open triumph.
