  • Djokovic, Nishikori, Halep ousted at Indian Wells

Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios has slammed the media's coverage of him in the wake of Novak Djokovic's stunning Indian Wells exit.

However, top seed Djokovic suffered a shock 6-4 6-4 loss against German veteran Kohlschreiber in their rescheduled match on Tuesday.

Djokovic was just 1-for-5 on break-point opportunities.

"It's a very special moment". Kohlschreiber completed his big victory with an inside-in forehand victor that painted the line.

His sloppy play did not diminish the 35-year-old Kohlschreiber's joy at defeating a number one ranked player for the first time in his long career, however.

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.

Osaka lost to Belinda Bencic 6-3, 6-1 in just over an hour in the fourth round.

Since Osaka won the title at Indian Wells a year ago, she earned titles at the USA and Australian Opens.

The German fended off four out of five break points he had to play against and won 40% of the return points, enough for three breaks and a great win, his 83rd at Masters 1000 level.

"Take care and good night, know this the good life, hot tubs and court time, Thursday we back alright!" he rapped at the end of the song, which got a roar of approval from the audience.

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

Nadal eased by 25th-seeded Diego Schwartzman 6-3, 6-1, while Federer defeated Swiss countryman Stan Wawrinka 6-3, 6-4.

Venus Williams reached the quarterfinals with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Mona Barthel.

The 2012 Indian Wells finalist will face one of two Russians, Andrey Rublev or Karen Khachanov, in the fourth round.
