Kohlschreiber shocks top-ranked Djokovic in Indian Wells 3rd round

Indian Wells: Novak Djokovic beaten by Philipp Kohlschreiber in third round

World No 1 Novak Djokovic failed to find explanation for his shock exit at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells to Philipp Kohlschreiber on Tuesday.

"To be honest, I don't enjoy losing, nobody does, but especially in a tournament like this, a tournament where I have had plenty of success in the past", Djokovic said. Very special to beat the No. 1. "I need to do what I want, and what I want is to play the tournaments I want to play". Her triumph in Australia made her No. 1 for the first time, but her time at the top has been rocky. "I would say after 3-all in the first set I felt like getting closer to the set, holding my service games, which is not easy against Novak, because he's such a great returner", Kohlschreiber said.

"Things to work on, without a doubt", Djokovic said.

"I'm going to try to go all the way here in doubles".

"I lose to (Kohlschreiber) and get absolutely shredded "same old Kyrgios" how about the guy is just good?"

"She forced the issue on every point, didn't make a lot of errors, played defensively when she had to, played offensively", Williams said of her German opponent, ranked No. 97.

"I tried my best and I don't really have any regrets", said Osaka to media.

Shortly after falling to Kohlschreiber, Djokovic was headed out for doubles, teaming with Fognini for a 7-6, 2-6, 10-8 victory over Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau to reach the semi-finals.

"It's a very special win today", Kohlschreiber said.

In another upset earlier, Pole Hubert Hurkacz fired 10 aces en route to a 4-6 6-4 6-3 win over world number seven Kei Nishikori of Japan to reach the fourth round. "I was really impressed with her game". I was able to mix up my game, cover my serve, be risky on the return - maybe take some rhythm away from Stan.
