  • Djokovic will try to regroup for the Miami Masters after the abrupt end to his bid to win a record sixth Indian Wells title and match Rafael Nadal's record of 33 Masters 1000 titles

"I know from that point on it's going to be a very interesting match". We beat a very experienced doubles team."Djokovic and Fognini are the first team into the semi-finals in the California desert, triumphing after one hour and 36 minutes".

Kohlschreiber will not have long to celebrate, however, as the overnight interruption of his match against Djokovic for rain means he will be back on court for a fourth-round meeting with France's Gael Monfils on Wednesday. "So these are the rare occasions where I could potentially do well", Djokovic said.

Serbia's Djokovic, who now holds three of the four Grand Slam titles, was beaten 6-4, 6-4 in his third round match at the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) event against Germany's world number 39 Phlipp Kohlschreiber. "But it is, I guess, part of the world that we are in, the world of tennis".

But Kyrgios cherry-picked the reporter's tweets, responding to another that suggested Djokovic was "not as comfortable" on court because he is also playing doubles at Indian Wells.

"She was just playing so well", said Osaka.

With his 400th tour-level win on the line, Kohlschreiber held seven match points against No. 1 Andy Murray in the 2017 Dubai quarter-finals. "I'll probably never play another tie-break like that again", Murray said afterwards. "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.

Djokovic's chief rivals Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer breezed into the Round of 16 with straight sets win.

Among the other games, Federer and Nadal won their respective games, against Stan Wawrinka (6-3, 6-4) and Diego Schwartzman (6-3, 6-1).

On Tuesday, the 23rd-ranked Bencic served and returned better.

He will play Serbia's Filip Krajinovic next after Krajinovic, ranked 113, beat 15th seed Daniil Medvedev 6-3 6-2.

While Federer and Nadal have voted against having Chris Kermode as ATP Chairman, Player's Council President Djokovic has backed Kermode. "When I hit a good return, I was wondering why this didn't happen in singles", he said. "Maybe take some rhythm away from Stan, like I always try to do, but you can't always make it work".

The big-serving 2012 Indian Wells finalist will face Russian Karen Khachanov after he defeated countryman Andrey Rublev 7-5 6-3 in their fourth round match.

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

Osaka was seeking to become the second woman to win back-to-back singles titles at Indian Wells.
