Miami second “golden” chance for No. 1s

Of all the wild results at Indian Wells, the premature defeats of the current No. 1, Naomi Osaka and Novak Djokovic, were up there.

Djokovic, still alive in the doubles with Fabio Fognini, wasn’t helped by a rare rainout for his third-round match against Philipp Kohlschreiber.


The high-bouncing day conditions for the reprise, were to his disadvantage, he said. Kohlschreiber agreed.  

Osaka, defending a title for the first time, lost to the in-form Belinda Bencic.

Next up is Miami. Even with the new venue, it’s close to home for Osaka and a tournament Djokovic has won six times.
