Djokovic Suffers Shock Defeat To Medvedev In Monte Carlo Quarter-Final

Nadal topples Dimitrov Novak Djokovic cruises through

Nadal topples Dimitrov Novak Djokovic cruises through

The 11-times champion made a sluggish start and was one point away from 1-5 deficit in the opening set but recovered well to convert seven of his 13 break-point opportunities and advance after two hours and 20 minutes.

"It was a very tough first set physically and mentally, too".

"This was the best match of my career, maybe not in the level of tennis but in beating the number one for the first time in my life", said Medvedev.

World No 1 Novak Djokovic became the latest high-profile exit from the Rolex Monte Carlo Masters after he was beaten by Daniil Medvedev.

The Russian 10th seed beat much-fancied Greek youngster Stefanos Tsitsipas in the previous round, and on Friday gained a measure of revenge for his defeat to Djokovic in the last of the Australian Open earlier this year.

Mentally, you always think you can. "He had to change his game; he had to change his perspective a little bit", Jordan said. He's won a tour event [the Tour Championship]. " His confidence is only going to build from here ".

It is expected Djokovic and Medvedev will get on court for their match at around midday (GMT). "He hits it very low and with depth". Losing the first three games with my serve was tough.

"I was lucky at 4-1, he had two points to be 5-1 and with 5-1 it's nearly impossible. Being in the semi-finals again here means a lot to me". I started winning matches played bad while a year ago I was always losing. He definitely deserves to be where he is'.

I trained well, I am confident because I reached the Doha Open semifinals on hard, I won in Buenos Aires without dropping off a set, then I played so and so in Indian Wells and Miami.

He backed up his impressive win over No 5 Dominic Thiem with a 6-4, 7-5 victory against Italian qualifier Lorenzo Sonego, who dumped out Britain's Cameron Norrie.

The player who has won the last three Grand Slam events and could conclude a personal sweep with another title at Roland Garros in June feels that all he needs is more court time and some extra polish.
