LONDON (Dispatches) - World number one Novak Djokovic was knocked out of the BNP Paribas Open in the third round by Philipp Kohlschreiber at Indian Wells.
The Serb, who currently holds three of the four Grand Slam titles, was beaten 6-4 6-4 by the German world number 39.
Djokovic broke his racquet in anger after Kohlschreiber - who had lost his past seven matches against the 31-year-old - took the first set.
Britain's Kyle Edmund beat Radu Albot 6-3 6-3 to reach the last 16.
He will face Roger Federer, who defeated fellow Swiss Stan Wawrinka 6-3 6-4 to reach the fourth round.
The match between Djokovic and Kohlschreiber began on Monday but was delayed until Tuesday because of heavy rain.
Kohlschreiber won 72% of first-serve points and saved four of five break points as he closed out victory.
He will play French 18th seed Gael Monfils in the fourth round.
