It was a tough day for seeded players at the BNP Paribas Open, with top-ranked Novak Djokovic the biggest name ushered out in the desert.

Djokovic and Philipp Kohlschreiber resumed their third-round match on Tuesday that had been suspended because of rain a night earlier. The unseeded German knocked off the five-time tournament champion 6-4, 6-4.

Also ousted were No. 6 Kei Nishikori, No. 10 Marin Cilic and No. 14 Daniil Medvedev.
