Nadal and Federer cruise into fourth round, Djokovic dumped out

Nick Kyrgios congratulates Philipp Kohlschreiber after their match at Indian Wells

World number one Novak Djokovic struggled to find an explanation for his shock third round defeat by German Philipp Kohlschreiber at the BNP Paribas Open on Tuesday, saying he wanted to quickly "turn the next page".

"Especially in a tournament like this, a tournament where I have had plenty of success in the past".

Kyrgios, who was criticised after his defeat to Kohlschreiber, used Gabriel's tweet to highlight what he perceives is a double-standard in the treatment Djokovic and fellow legends Roger Federer and Nadal receive from the tennis media and public.

The women's field lost its top two seeds as Romania's Halep, the 2015 Indian Wells victor, fell to Czech teenager Marketa Vondrousova 6-2, 3-6, 6-2. "You always need the No. 1 not to play his best to beat him". I was able to mix up my game, cover my serve, be unsafe on the return - maybe take some rhythm away from Stan.

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

He will play 19-year-old Canadian Denis Shapovalov, the 24th seed who beat 10th-seeded Croatian Marin Cilic 6-4, 6-2.

Kohlschreiber defeated Djokovic, 6-4, 6-4, in a third-round match completed Tuesday.

Speaking on his victory over Nole, Kohlschreiber said, "I think I put out a pretty good strategy on the court, very clever serve, good return game - it was a good day". I'm really happy with myself. I'm hitting the ball well. "So just things worked out for me". "She was just playing so well and she's such an incredible player", Osaka said of Bencic, who will face No. 5 Karolina Pliskova. "But it's everything I could do today".

Venus Williams reached the quarterfinals with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Mona Barthel. "I know it's a very special victory today", he said.

Djokovic, who is now the world No.1, was beaten by world No.39 Philipp Kohlschreiber 4-6 4-6 after the German veteran took out Kyrgios earlier in the tournament.

Second seed Simona Halep joined the top seeds crashing out after losing 6-2, 3-6, 6-2 to unseeded Marketa Vondrousova of the Czech Republic in one hour and 40 minutes.

Andreescu improved her match record for 2019 to 25-3, including qualifying, as she became the youngest player to make the last eight at Indian Wells since a 17-year-old Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova reached the semis in 2009. Her triumph in Australia made her No. 1 for the first time, but her time at the top has been rocky.
