Not a great season, says Djoko after Ruud shock

Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic admitted he was “not having a great season at all” after he was knocked out of the Monte Carlo Masters by Casper Ruud in the semi-finals. 


The 10th-ranked Norwegian beat the world number one 6-4, 1-6, 6-4 for a first win in six attempts against the record 24-time Grand Slam title winner. 


Djokovic insisted, however, that he won’t panic despite seeing a golden opportunity to go on capture a 41st Masters title snatched away by a player he swept off court in the French Open final last year. “I’m used to a really high standard in terms of expectations and results. Not having a title is—compared to the last 15 years—not a great season at all,” said Djokovic.
