Djokovic keen to turn the page after Indian Wells exit

The world No 1 slipped to a shock defeat

The world No 1 slipped to a shock defeat

For the 35-year-old veteran Kohlschreiber, this was his first victory over a No. 1 player in 12 tries, just his second win career-wise over Djokovic.

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

He admitted to being nervous in the early stages of his second-round 7-6, 6-2 win over USA qualifier Bjorn Fratangelo.

Nonetheless, Djokovic's Indian Wells campaign is not yet completely over as he is still alive in the doubles, where he, along with his partner Fabio Fognini beat the pair of Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau in the quarter-finals. "I don't think it's going to be hard".

But he'll also be putting in some solid singles practice.

"I suffered in the past against Diego", he said. "I'm not at my highest level, but slowly building, and hopefully I'll be able to peak in Miami". She followed that with an Australian Open crown that sent her to number one. "She sort of came out there really aggressive", Osaka said. "Honestly, at a time like this with that scoreline, I would usually feel very depressed and sad".

"I thought I was in good form".

Kyrgios was beaten by Kohlschreiber in round 2 with many quick to criticise his performance having gone from winning a title last week in Mexico to a premature exit in California.

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.

"I think I put out a pretty good strategy on the court", Kohlschreiber said, "very clever serve, good return game".

"Today, with Novak being No.1, top-seeded here, it's a very incredible win for me". She won everything in the past couple of months. "I've got a Grand Slam champion on my side of the net, someone that has great hands in doubles". I'm really happy with myself. I was focusing on my game. I was able to mix up my game, cover my serve, be risky on the return - maybe take some rhythm away from Stan. "So just things worked out for me".

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".

Bencic will next play Thursday, facing fifth-seeded Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic, a 7-6 (0), 4-6, 6-2 victor over 21st-seeded Anett Kontaveit of Estonia on Tuesday.

Halep, who received treatment for blisters on her foot during the match, hit just six winners and piled up 36 unforced errors.
