    For Daniil Medvedev, his first championship as world number one ended faster than he had hoped. The Russian failed at the ATP 1000 Championships in Indian Wells in his second match after climbing to the top of the world rankings against French veteran Gaël Monfils (ATP 26). With 6:4, 3:6, 1:6 he missed entering the round of 16.

    The 26-year-old replaced Novak Djokovic as the world number one at the end of February, which in turn is now pushing the Russian away from the throne. Medvedev easily won his first match after a bye at Indian Wells against Czech Tomas Mack through 6:3, 6:2.

Djokovic is not initially in the United States because he has not been vaccinated against the coronavirus and has not received an entry permit. However, the Serbs will return to the top of the world rankings next Monday.

Tsitsipas also failed

With Stefanos Tsitsipas, another top player was eliminated early in the desert. The Greek, seed 5, lost to American Jenson Broxby (ATP 43) 6:1, 3:6, 2:6.
