Novak Djokovic admits it is ‘not a great season at all’ so far after Monte Carlo Masters exit

Djokovic Reflects on Monte Carlo Masters Defeat, Sets Sights on Improvement

 

World No.1 Novak Djokovic recently shared his thoughts on his performance at the Monte Carlo Masters, expressing disappointment after his loss in the semi-final. Despite reaching his best result at the tournament since 2015, Djokovic's journey was halted by Casper Ruud in a closely contested match, culminating in a 4-6 6-1 4-6 defeat.

 

Reflecting on his season so far, Djokovic acknowledged that it hasn't met his usual high standards, with four defeats in 2024. He admitted, "I'm used to a really high standard in terms of expectations of the results, so not having a title is, maybe comparing to the last 15 years, not a great season at all."

 

However, Djokovic remains optimistic about the future, seeing potential for improvement in upcoming tournaments. Despite the setback, he emphasized the positives from his recent performances and aims to capitalize on them moving forward.

 

In the critical moments of the match against Ruud, Djokovic demonstrated resilience by staging a comeback from a break down in the deciding set. However, he ultimately fell short, acknowledging Ruud's solid performance and conceding that his own game was inconsistent.

 

Looking ahead, Djokovic plans to take a week off before returning to competitive action at the Madrid Masters. He is determined to make strides in his pursuit of success on clay courts and is focused on refining his game for future challenges.
