INDIAN WELLS, California-Novak Djokovic and Naomi Osaka, both ranked No. 1 in the world, cruised to straight-set victories at the BNP Paribas Open on Saturday night.

World number one Osaka beat Mladenovic 6-3 6-4, the win under the stadium court lights sweet revenge for the reigning US and Australian Open champion after she lost to the same opponent in the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships first round last month.

Mladenovic held serve to narrow the deficit to 5-4, and Osaka faced another break point before wrapping up the match in one hour and 21 minutes for a third-round meeting with American Danielle Collins.

Djokovic broke in the first game of the second set and again in the fifth as he eased to victory.

Kyrgios had captured his first ATP title in more than a year when he lifted the Mexico Open trophy, beating three top-10 players along the way in world number two Rafael Nadal, No. 9 John Isner of the United States and, in the final, third-ranked German Alexander Zverev. I think she had a few tight points, and here we are.

"I was feeling good". Friday it was Serena subduing Victoria Azarenka in an epic, and yesterday Venus authored her own incredible win, taking down Australian Open finalist Petra Kvitova 4-6, 7-5, 6-4. Summing up how she felt after the match, Kvitova told reporters: "I want to swear, but I will not". "I was so frustrated with myself from the half of the second set to the end, which shouldn't happen to me", she further explained.

Fourth-seeded Federer said he was relieved not to go to a second-set tiebreaker after falling behind 3-1 to the free-swinging German who is ranked 85th in the world.

Now that each family has been cut out, Kelly claimed , they're speaking out against him because they want money from him. When the topic of age came up, he said, "I just look at legal", and that he doesn't care if the women are much younger.

"To be honest, I was a bit nervous in the beginning, I didn't play my best".

"I played her two times before, and two times, it was not the best play".

Despite Kvitova firing down 10 aces, it was nullified, as she also hit ten double faults, gifting Williams the free points.

Karolina Pliskova booked her place in the third round after a hard-fought win over qualifier Misaki Doi.

"I injured my tendon, then when I came back to play in Paris Bercy, I had an abdominal injury, [and then] I injured my foot a little".

Italian 16th seed Fognini went down to qualifier Radu Albot 6-0 7-6 (7-4), while Pouille suffered a 6-2 3-6 6-4 loss to Hubert Hurkacz.

Angelique Kerber kicked off her campaign with a comfortable 6-0, 6-2 victory over Yulia Putintseva.
