Djokovic and Sinner reach Monte Carlo quarterfinals


The Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic and the Italian Jannik Sinner reached the quarterfinals of the Monte Carlo tournament this Thursday, the third Masters 1,000 of the season, after beating the Italian Lorenzo Musetti and the German Jan-Lennard Struff.

The world number one took revenge on his executioner last year in the Principality in an even duel, but which the Serbian was able to win this time, 7-5, 6-3 in one hour and 58 minutes. The one from Belgrade, in his first tournament since he stopped working with Goran Ivanisevic, noticed those ghosts at the beginning.

The champion of 24 majors lost his first serve, but little by little he found his place on the court, until he linked a powerful end to the set with two breaks. The second act did not have everything for Djokovic, in an exchange of breaks that he ended up taking forward to be in the quarterfinals of the tournament in his city of residence for the first time since 2019.

The current Roland Garros champion thus maintains his progress in his debut on clay this season, heading to Paris, and will now face the Australian Alex de Minaur. On the other side of the draw, the world number two, Sinner, also failed, with a 6-4, 6-2 over Struff.

This year’s champion of the Australian Open, the Rotterdam tournament and, recently, the Miami Masters 1,000, easily beat the German to meet the Danish Holger Rune in the quarterfinals, who won in three sets (7-6(9) , 3-6, 7-6(2) against Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, finalist in Miami.
