Angry Novak Djokovic flings racket in wild outburst at Indian Wells

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. "I need to do what I want, and what I want is to play the tournaments I want to play". "You just have to deal with it, move on, turn the next page". And in this case, it's good for me that I'm participating in doubles here, because I get a chance to rectify the wrongs.

But in a match that resumed after rain stopped play following completion of just one game on Monday night, Kohlschreiber looked crisp and confident, breaking the Serbian star for a 4-3 lead in the first and pocketing the set with a service victor on his second set point.

"I congratulate him for playing tactically really well and getting me out of my comfort zone", Djokovic said.

"I'm very confident with my game right now".

"I felt good from the beginning", said Federer, who is coming off his 100th career title at Dubai last month.

But shortly thereafter, the Serbian returned to the court alongside Fabio Fognini, defeating 2015 Nitto ATP Finals champions Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau 7-6 (6), 2-6, 10-6. "I know from that point on it's going to be a very interesting match".

"When I hit a good return, I was wondering why this didn't happen in singles". I'm really happy with myself. "For me, the plan worked". "She was just playing so well and she's such an incredible player", Osaka said of Bencic, who will face No. 5 Karolina Pliskova.

Her defeat means Osaka will retain her number one ranking, even though she couldn't pull off her first title defense.

Djokovic, who now holds three of the four grand slam titles, was beaten 6-4, 6-4 to world No 39 German Philipp Kohlschreiber in the third round on Tuesday. Very special to beat the No. 1.

Venus Williams reached the quarterfinals with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Mona Barthel.

No. 7 seed Kiki Bertens was defeated by 20th seed Garbine Muguruza 5-7, 6-1, 6-4.

Andreescu - who roared to her first WTA final as a qualifier in Auckland in January, beating two former world number ones on the way - is in the quarter-finals of one of the WTA's elite premier mandatory events for the first time.

World number two Nadal stayed on track to improve that number as he swept past Argentine Diego Schwartzman 6-3, 6-1 to reach the last 16.
