Bad day for No. 1s: Djokovic, Osaka upset at Indian Wells

Bad day for No. 1s: Djokovic, Osaka upset at Indian Wells

The German punched the air in celebration after a video review confirmed that his forehand victor caught the line on match point to seal the upset victory in Indian Wells.

The 35-year-old German started thinking he had a chance early in the first set when he survived a handful of break points on his serve.

Djokovic led German Philipp Kohlschreiber 1-0 before the game was suspended due to heavy rain on Monday. But I feel pretty good right now, because I tried my best and I don't really have any regrets. So everything came together. 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".

"Unfortunately the tournament is not over". "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. Former Paris Masters finalist and Filip Krajinovic rolled past an in-form Daniil Medvedev 6-3, 6-2.

Both the World number 1's and current Australian Open Champions were sent packing from the Indian Wells.

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.

French Open champion Halep, still without a permanent coach, has not won a WTA title since the Canadian Open last August.

Djokovic, playing his first tournament since lifting his record seventh Australian Open title in January, knew he'd have to work his way back into top form.

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

"Gael played better than me in these matches. Honestly, she was just playing so well, and she's such an incredible player". After upsetting the Japanese in Dubai, the 22-year-old Pole did it against Tuesday with a 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 win. "But it is, I guess, part of the world that we are in, the world of tennis". I was happy to come through.

Two wayward forehands and a double fault from Djokovic helped Kohlschreiber to another break for a 5-2 lead.

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's been close to the Top 10 for many years and has beaten many top players. Let's see. You know, if you win the whole thing here, it might change", he said with a smile.
