Djokovic keen to turn the page after Indian Wells exit - Omni Sports

World No 1 Novak Djokovic failed to find explanation for his shock exit at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells to Philipp Kohlschreiber on Tuesday.

"Especially in a tournament like this, a tournament where I have had plenty of success in the past". "You just have to deal with it, move on, turn the next page".

Djokovic displayed his frustration by banging his racquet against his foot until it crumpled, but it did nothing to improve his fortunes as Kohlschreiber opened the second set with a break.

Kohlschreiber, 35, stunned the top seed and five-times former champion 6-4 6-4 in Indian Wells, leaving the Serb to conclude it had just been "one of those days".

"I congratulate him for playing tactically really well and getting me out of my comfort zone", Djokovic said. I was focusing on my game.

"I suffered in the past against Diego", he said.

Bencic - who beat four top-10 players on the way to the title in Dubai last month, her first trophy in four years - next faces fifth-seeded Czech Karolina Pliskova, who downed Anett Kontaveit 7-6 (10/8), 4-6, 6-2.

Two wayward forehands and a double fault from Djokovic helped Kohlschreiber to another break for a 5-2 lead. "Honestly, at a time like this with that scoreline, I would usually feel very depressed and sad". "I feel pretty good right now", Osaka said, "because I think, given the circumstances, I tried my best and I don't really have any regrets". I'm happy that we managed to pull that one through. I'm hitting the ball well. "But it's everything I could do today".

"Today, with Novak being No.1, top-seeded here, it's a very incredible win for me".

Venus Williams reached the quarterfinals with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Mona Barthel. Her triumph in Australia made her No. 1 for the first time, but her time at the top has been rocky.

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.

Muguruza next faces 18-year-old Canadian Bianca Andreescu, who surprised China's 18th-seeded Wang Qiang 7-5, 6-2.

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

Fourth-seeded Roger Federer of Switzerland will play in the third match on Stadium 1, facing 22nd-seeded Kyle Edmund of Britain.
