Novak Djokovic keen to turn the page after Indian Wells exit

Novak Djokovic keen to turn the page after Indian Wells exit

While it is being assumed it was just one of the bad days for Nole, there are debates that Nole was under pressure due to off-field controversy. "Completely different conditions today".

Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios has slammed the media's coverage of him in the wake of Novak Djokovic's stunning Indian Wells exit. "When I hit a good return, I was wondering why this didn't happen in singles", he said. I wasn't playing well.

"I haven't played that much, so I wanted to make it count", said Williams, who is ranked No. 36 and expects to play about 12 tournaments this year.

Then it was Kohlschreiber's turn to show some nerves as a string of four errors, including a double fault, gave Djokovic a break back.

Shortly after falling to Kohlschreiber, Djokovic was headed out for doubles, teaming with Fognini for a 7-6 (8/6), 2-6, 10/6 victory over Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau to reach the semi-finals.

The Serbian broke his racket in anger after dropping the first set to Kohlschreiber. Djokovic's chief rivals Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer breezed into the Round of 16 with straight sets win.

Osaka lost to Belinda Bencic 6-3, 6-1 in just over an hour in the fourth round of the first title defense of her career. Djokovic and Fognini paid the price for not converting their second-set chances as they had break points in three games but didn't realize any of their six break point chances.

Also, Czech teen Marketa Vondrousova shocked world No. 2 Simona Halep 6-2, 3-6, 6-2 the same day, notching her first victory over a top-five player to reach the WTA quarter-finals at Indian Wells. "I mixed up the pace a lot".

Federer took his record to 22-3 over Wawrinka, a former world number three who is climbing back up the rankings in the wake of double knee surgery. "So these are the rare occasions where I could potentially do well", Djokovic said. I was focusing on my game. "So just things worked out for me". In other action, Dominic Inglot and Franko Skugor rallied to beat fourth seeds Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan 3-6, 6-3, 10-3.

Poland's 67th-ranked Hubert Herkacz upset sixth-seeded Kei Nishikori of Japan 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 to reach the last 16 of a Masters 1000 event for the first time.

Elsewhere, Canadian 19-year-old Denis Shapovalov rapped on court in his post-match interview after beating Croatian 10th seed seed Marin Cilic.
