Reigning US Open champion Daniil Medvedev joined the growing list of top-seed casualties at the ATP/WTA Indian Wells on Wednesday, losing in the fourth round to World No. 28 Grigor Dimitrov 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.


Medvedev, who won his first Grand Slam title last month at Flushing Meadows, had not lost a set heading into the fourth round but dropped eight straight games, and had his serve broken six times against Dimitrov, en route to a stunning early exit for the top seed. “I don’t remember myself losing three service games, even four service games ever on hard courts,” Medvedev said. 


In other men’s fourth-round matches, second seed Stefanos Tsitsipas defeated Australian Alex De Minaur 6-7 (3/7), 7-6 (7/3), 6-2 and third-seeded Alexander Zverev of Germany overpowered France’s Gael Monfils 6-1, 6-3. In the women’s draw, two-time winner Victoria Azarenka punched her ticket to the semi-finals with a 6-4, 6-2 win over Jessica Pegula. Azarenka will next face Jelena Ostapenko for a spot in the women’s final.
