Djokovic stunned by Kohlschreiber at Indian Wells

Krajinovic will be a big underdog when he faces Spain's world number two Rafa Nadal, who crushed Argentine Diego Schwartzman 6-3 6-1 on the showcase court to reach the last 16.

'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. "I must admit I was thinking about it. but it's part of our world, and we just have to bounce back very quickly".

Elsewhere, Halep lost to Marketa Vondrousova 6-2 3-6 6-2, and Kiki Bertens was beaten by 20th-seeded Garbine Muguruza 5-7 6-1 6-4.

"To be honest, I don't enjoy losing", Djokovic said after falling 6-4, 6-4 to 39th-ranked German Philipp Kohlschreiber in the third round. "Completely different conditions today: Ball bounces much higher".

After dropping the first set, Djokovic displayed his frustration by banging his racquet against his foot until it crumpled. 'I know from that point on it's going to be a very interesting match'. He had an 0-11 record against World No. 1 opponents entering Tuesday's match against Djokovic, but came oh-so-close to snapping that winless record two years ago. Kohlschreiber converted three of his four chances.

She said: 'Think about this. "At the same time", she continued, "I reaffirm the problematic role of lobbyists in our politics". In January, she acknowledged this was "unknowingly" offensive. "I didn't see anything wrong with Pirro's remarks".

Nevertheless, he thought he was poised for a deeper run, something he'll now try to achieve in doubles alongside Italian playing partner Fabio Fognini.

"He can play well on any surface and I think he should get more recognition because he's done a lot for the sport as a whole". Djokovic returned about an hour after his loss for their match. "Tonight it worked well so I think it was a good match for me", said Federer, who like Djokovic is a five-time victor at Indian Wells.

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.

American John Isner never faced a break point during his comfortable 6-3 6-4 win over Guido Pella.

"Especially in a tournament like this, a tournament where I have had plenty of success in the past". In Kitzbuhel, he has a 18-9 match record (.667) - and on his most recent tournament appearance in 2018, he played a match on his wedding day.
