Federer explains why Novak Djokovic's exit at Indian Wells is 'not surprising'
Federer returned to stadium court on Sunday afternoon and needed an hour to finish off his second round victory 6-3, 7-6 (8-6). Federer saved a set point in the second-set tie-break before easing through.

According to TMZ, the owner of the dog could not only get the value of the animal but money for "emotional distress suffered by the owner" under IL law, where United Airlines is based.

United Airlines, the carrier that endured harsh criticism previous year when a passenger was dragged from an overbooked flight, is under the gun again. Sophia Ceballos, her mother Catalina Robledo and their dog named Kokito boarded the flight Monday at Bush Intercontinental Airport.

The flight attendant claims that she was unaware that there was a puppy in the carrier when she asked that it be put in the overhead compartment.

"We have a task force, an animal cruelty task force led by Precinct 5 and they are conducting the investigation", Cloud said.

United Airlines can't seem to get things right when it comes to pets on their flights.

United Airlines issued a statement confirming the incident Tuesday, saying it would "assume full responsibility".

"This breed of dog has problems breathing", Werber said. "So I instantly burst into tears just wondering where my dog was". "In the end she said that she didn't know it was a dog but she actually touched the bag and felt him there, she was basically lying to us", said Ceballos. Online posts from witnesses said the passenger explained there was a dog in the bag, but the flight attendant insisted it go in the overhead.

"This was a tragic accident that should never have occurred, as pets should never be placed in the overhead bin", the airline said in its statement. "We. express our deepest condolences".

The trip from George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston to LaGuardia Airport in NY took about 3½ hours, according to the flight tracking website FlightAware.
