INDIAN WELLS, Calif. -- Defending champions Rafael Nadal and Maria Sharapova were upset in the third round of the BNP Paribas Open on Monday. First, Sharapova went down to qualifier Camila Giorgi, 6-3, 4-6, 7-5, giving the young Italian her first victory over a top-five player. Then, Nadal followed on the main stadium court, losing 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (5) to Alexandr Dolgopolov of Ukraine. Nadal staged a furious rally in the third. He won three straight games, including a break of Dolgopolov, to tie it at 5. Both players held serve to send the match into the tiebreaker. They slugged it out from the baseline accompanied by a noisy soundtrack, with fans yelling and cheering. Los Angeles Lakers star Pau Gasol watched nervously from Nadals box. Nadal led 4-2 before Dolgopolov won three straight points to take a 5-4 lead. The Ukrainian hit two forehand winners and came up with a big service winner. "I had enough breaks to win the match, but I didnt play enough well from the baseline then to be solid with my serve," Nadal said. "I didnt go for the points. I played with too many mistakes." Nadal evened it at 5-all, but he hit the ball long to set up match point. Dolgopolov served what he thought was an ace, but it was called out. He challenged the call and it showed the ball barely missed tagging the T. Dolgopolov put his second serve into play and produced a cross-court forehand that the worlds top-ranked player couldnt return. "Its a moment for the people to be proud a little bit for someone from their country," Dolgopolov said, referring to the political upheaval going on between Ukraine and Russia. "Its good to make some results and make the people forget a little bit and have some happy moments in the news." Dolgopolov had more errors (49) than winners (36). Last month, Nadal defeated Dolgopolov to win the Rio de Janeiro title. The Ukrainian has risen quickly in the ATP Tour rankings, going from No. 57 to 31st after a strong February, posting three wins against top-20 players in Rio and made the semifinals in Acapulco. Before Nadal was sent packing, Sharapova committed 58 errors in her first loss to a player ranked outside the top 30 since Wimbledon last year. "Shes someone that doesnt give you much rhythm," Sharapova said. "Shes quite aggressive, but some shots she hits incredible for a long period of time. Sometimes they go off a bit. If Im speaking about my level, it was nowhere near where it should have been." Ranked 79th in the world, Giorgi made it through qualifying to play Indian Wells for the first time. She improved to 3-2 against top-10 opponents. The 22-year-old led 4-2 in the final set, but Sharapova broke Giorgi twice to tie it at 5. "I was trying to just play my game, and maybe I accelerate more than the other set," Giorgi said. "I just play more aggressive." Giorgi then broke Sharapova at love before serving out the match, overcoming her 11th double fault to set up match point. Giorgi had 48 unforced errors and 24 winners. Awaiting Giorgi in the fourth round will be fellow Italian Flavia Pennetta, who beat No. 16 seed Sam Stosur 6-4, 3-6, 6-1. American Sloane Stephens was to play Ana Ivanovic, and Tommy Haas took on Kei Nishikori of Japan in night matches. Tied 4-all in the third, Sharapova was broken when her forehand was called long and Sharapova raised her arms. The chair umpire took the gesture to mean Sharapova was challenging the call, and the call showed the ball was out. Sharapova argued she was only throwing her arms up as if to ask, "Who made the call?" But the umpire disagreed, and Sharapova retreated to her sideline chair trailing 5-4. Australian Open champion Stan Wawrinka routed 29th-seeded Andreas Seppi of Italy 6-0, 6-2. Andy Murray outlasted Jiri Vesely of the Czech Republic 6-7 (2), 6-4, 6-4 in his second straight three-set match, and four-time tourney champion Roger Federer defeated 27th-seeded Dmitry Tursunov of Russia 7-6 (7), 7-6 (2) with an ace on match point. Murray had 47 of the 99 unforced errors during the nearly three-hour match in the 80-plus-degree heat of the Southern California desert. The third set featured six service breaks, with Murray taking the last two. Top-seeded Li Na defeated Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic 6-3, 6-4. Nathan Shepherd Jersey .

From thumping forehands to blistering backhands and miraculous returns, fans can expect to see some thrilling tennis.Here, we pick out the trademark shots to look out for from each of the title hopefuls… Live Tennis: ATP World Tour Finals November 13, 2016, 12:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Stan Wawrinka: Backhand Wawrinka has arguably the best backhand in the sport and unleashes it with not only ferocious power but also pinpoint accuracy.It is different to his rivals backhands, largely because he adopts an open stance side on and drills directly into the ball, which means it carries little top spin and arrives at his opponents far earlier and flatter than they are used to.Milos Raonic: Serve Raonic has one of the fastest and most unpredictable serves in tennis. Following an unusually high ball toss, he holds his racket face on, as opposed to the side-on style adopted by other players, which generates more power and makes it difficult for opponents to anticipate which direction the ball will travel in.Raonic is the owner of the sixth-fastest serve in history, a 250kmh rocket at the 2012 Rogers Cup.Andy Murray: Serve return Murray is a master of all tennis trades, but if you had to pick out one single shot that is narrowly better than the others, it is tough to look past his serve return.His ability to read a serve, his blink-of-an-eye reaction times and his speed across the baseline mean only the very best deliveries evade him.He knows that as long as he gets the ball back over the net, he is good enough in other areas of the game to seize back the initiative in the rally and win the point.Marin Cilic: Forehand Cilic adopts an off forehand technique to his forehand to generate more power and consequentlyy hits harder and flatter than just about anyone else on tour.ddddddddddddHis 2014 US Open win was built on this exceptional shot, which he sends the ball over the net at angles and speed few other players can conjure.It is especially lethal on hard and fast courts, so the fast O2 surface should suit him perfectly.Gael Monfils: Flair shot Monfils is tennis showman and while his trademark exhibition shots may not always win him points and matches, they never fail to entertain.He is prepared to try shots that other players wouldnt even consider, be they hot dogs, pirouettes or flying smashes.Novak Djokovic: Defensive shot Djokovic is another all-rounder who excels in every discipline, but his greatest weapon is often his defensive play and, in particular, his remarkable stretch shot.While most players take three or four steps to reach a deep ball, Djokovic needs just two huge strides and then uses his remarkable elasticity to stretch and return it with a forehand or backhand slice.Kei Nishikori: Jumping forehand Although jumping forehands are common throughout tennis, Nishikori has to rely on it more than most thanks to the fact that, at 5ft 10in, he is almost always shorter than his opponent.Lifting feet off the ground can compromise the form of a shot, but Nishikori unleashes it without sacrificing speed or accuracy.Dominic Thiem: Backhand Thiems aggressive single-handed backhand was a sight to behold for the first six months of this season. It has changed little from his days playing tennis as a child and is one of the most natural strokes in the sport.He tends to glide at the ball, but still generates enough power capable of unerring accuracy. Thiems forehand is not as noteworthy in terms of style but is just as potent.I think the single handed backhand is a beautiful shot, the young Austrian said during a press conference. Im happy there are some young guys that play with it because it would be a shame if it dies.Watch every day of the ATP World Tour Finals, from November 13-20, live on Sky Sports. Full schedule here.
