Roger Federer , who lost to Thanasi Kokkinakis ranked 175th in the world, in Miami will not play at the French Open.

It was the first time since 2014 that Federer has lost back-to-back matches. He previously lost to Juan Martin del Potro at Indian Wells last Sunday.

“Every time I had chances, something bad happened,” Federer said of the loss. “Wrong decision-making by me, good decision-making by him. It’s disappointing. I don’t know why I couldn’t get to any level I was happy with today.”

Novak Djokovic's French Open title defense ended with a 7-6 (5), 6-3, 6-0 quarterfinal loss to Dominic Thiem.

A year ago, Djokovic became the first man in nearly a half-century to claim a fourth consecutive major championship and completed a career Grand Slam at Roland Garros.

Djokovic wasted two set points in the opener. He wound up with nearly twice as many unforced errors, 35, as winners, 18. His backhand was particularly problematic.
