Novak Djokovic dumped out of Miami Open by resilient Roberto Bautista Agut
World number one Novak Djokovic is out of the Miami Open after he fell to Roberto Bautista Agut for the second time in three months.
The Serb was absolutely dominant in the opening set but visibly wilted as Bautista Agut dug in.
Djokovic lost to the Spaniard in Doha earlier in the year, and cut a frustrated figure as he sank to a 1-6, 7-5, 6-3 loss.
Bautista Agut will now face defending champion John Isner in the quarter-final after he dispatched Kyle Edmund 7-6 (7-5), 7-6 (7-3).
It was a bad day for the Australians, though, with both Nick Kyrgios and Jordan Thompson bowing out.
Kyrgios lost to 11th seed Borna Coric 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 in typically controversial fashion.
He pulled off an incredible cross-court tweener winner in the first set before telling a fan to f*** off and losing a break point with a ode violation penalty.
Thompson, meanwhile, lost to Kevin Anderson 7-5, 7-5.
