Novak Djokovic is on his quest to win his 4th Madrid Open title. He began the tournament by defeating French tennis player Gaël Monfils, 6-2, 6-3. Improving his unbeaten record to 18-0 against the Frenchman, Djokovic remains at the top of the rankings. However for Monfils, it his worst record against a single opponent without winning in the Open era.

Talking about his performance after the match, Novak Djokovic said, “I would probably rate it as the best performance of the year. I felt very good on the court.”

“(The rain) interruption probably helped me a bit more than him. I played one of the most athletic and quickest players that we have in the game, Gaël… I know I have to always be ready that another ball will always come back from his part of the court. You have to constantly try to have a controlled aggression and dictate the point.”

Planning to skip the clay court season before reversing his decision, Andy Murray achieved a brilliant victory over Denis Shapovalov. He defeated Denis, 6-1, 3-2, 6-2 to set up a match with Novak Djokovic.

After the match, Andy Murray said, “He’s the world No. 1 and I’ve got a metal hip. I didn’t know I’d get opportunities to play matches like this again. In theory I shouldn’t have a chance in the match.”

He added, “But I’ve worked my hardest, put myself in a great position and it’s a fantastic opportunity to play against him again on a big court in a huge tournament.”
