Indian Wells round-up World No 3 Zverev sent packing Djokovic’s third-round match suspended

The 21-year-old did carve two break points out for himself as Struff served for the set soon after, but he was tentative in his approach to both points and the senior player on Stadium 1, to much duress, closed out the opener in 44 minutes.

And another handful of the breed was already into the third round in Indian Wells, not least the former world No3 and three-time Major champion Stan Wawrinka, ranked 40 but returning to his old form and fitness, post double knee surgery, at a rate of knots.

Karlovic - who became the oldest match victor at a Masters 1000 event since the level was created in 1990 after his first-round victory - will be looking to reach his first Masters quarter-final since 2011. He then broke his own record two days later with an upset of his countryman, No11 seed Borna Coric, and broke that record to reach the fourth round via victory over qualifier Prajnesh Gunneswaran, who was playing in his first-ever Masters main draw.

"I felt somehow unusual and the match was odd", said Pliskova.

Dominic Thiem beat French veteran Gilles Simon for the eighth-straight time with a convincing 6-3 6-1 performance. "I always loved the game and still love it. Tennis is my life", he said. "Because I think in today's game it would be a lot easier to return the ball". "I played a good match".

"He came up with the goods and definitely pushed me to the brink there where I was getting a little bit frustrated", Raonic told reporters.

Sarah Sanders deflects when asked about Trump calling Democrats 'anti-Jewish'
Democrats in Congress, along with The New York Times and the Miami Herald, have called on Acosta to resign as labor secretary. When the final resolution passed the House, it did not mention Omar by name. "Does he really believe Democrats hate Jews?"

Monfils - the 18th seed - will face the victor of the match between Djokovic and Kohlschreiber for a place in the quarter-final.

Next up for 55th-ranked Struff will be Canadian 13th seed Milos Raonic, who had his hands full before prevailing against American qualifier Marcos Giron 4-6 6-4 6-4. And the American very almost caused another upset.

Ailing world number three Alexander Zverev crashed out of the ATP Indian Wells Masters, where Novak Djokovic's third round match was suspended by rain with one game completed.

Giron, 25, looked set to claim the biggest win of a career that has been hindered by two hip operations when he took a 4-1 lead in the third set. Struff and Raonic have split their two previous FedEx ATP Head2Head meetings, with the German triumphing in Dubai just two weeks ago.Zverev had won all four of his previous FedEx ATP Head2Head matches against Struff, but all of those clashes came on clay.

Struff saved all four break points he faced and took barely an hour to clinch his first career win over Zverev in five attempts.
