It was a tough day for seeded players at the BNP Paribas Open on Tuesday, with Novak Djokovic and Naomi Osaka, the world's top-ranked players, ushered out in the desert.

Notably, the match was delayed by rain on Monday, as Kohlschreiber was confident and displayed crisp gameplay on Tuesday morning. The unseeded German knocked off the five-time tournament champion 6-4, 6-4.

"I tried my best and I don't really have any regrets", said Osaka to media.

World No.1 Djokovic fell in straight sets in what was his first tournament since lifting a record seventh Australian Open title in January.

This win was her first victory over a No. 1 not named Williams. Osaka fired her coach and lost in the first round in Dubai before taking on a new coach, Jermaine Jenkins, who came on court during the match. I don't know. I'm still in the tournament feeling great, playing good tennis.

"It's a very special moment".

"To be honest, I don't enjoy losing, nobody does, but especially in a tournament like this, a tournament where I have had plenty of success in the past", Djokovic told reporters.

"It's a very special win today", Kohlschreiber said. "Completely different conditions today: Ball bounces much higher".

"He's been around for so many years and he doesn't really get overwhelmed by the occasion of playing on center court", he told reporters. "He deserved to win". For the 35-year-old veteran Kohlschreiber, this was his first victory over a No. 1 player in 12 tries, just his second win career-wise over Djokovic. "I must admit I was thinking about it, but it's part of our world, and we just have to bounce back very quickly".
