British number one Johanna Konta is out of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells after a 6-3 3-6 6-7 (1-7) third-round defeat to France’s Caroline Garcia.

Konta, seeded 11th, broke Garcia in the fourth game of the first set and appeared on course for a place in the last 16.

But Garcia broke in the second to level the match and dominated the third-set tie-break, winning it 7-1.

Garcia will now face Italy’s Roberta Vinci or Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia.
