Novak Djokovic (World Ranking No. 1, Serbia), the ‘men’s tennis sign’, failed to cross the threshold of the quarterfinals of the Men’s Professional Tennis (ATP) Tour Srpska Open.
Djokovic kneeled to Dusan Rayovic (70th, Serbia) 0-2 (4-6 6-7<6-8>) in the quarterfinals of the singles tournament held in Bosnia-Herzegovina on the 21st (local time). He failed to reach his third win of the season.
Djokovic, who suffered the agony of being eliminated in the round of 16 at the previous Monte Carlo Open, finished his journey in the quarterfinals at this tournament. It is not a good pace with about a month before the opening of the French Open.
On the other hand, Rayovic won his first career victory over Djokovic. They have lost 2 times in the previous 2 matches. Rayovic was delighted, saying, “It’s the biggest victory in my career.”
Rayovic competes with Miomir Ketsmanovic (33rd, Serbia) to advance to the final.
Meanwhile, at the Porsche Grand Prix of the WTA Tour in Stuttgart, Germany, ‘Defending champion’ Iga Sibiontech (1st place, Poland) defeated Karolina Pliskova (17th place, Czech Republic) 2-1 (4-6 6-1 6-2) and advanced to the semifinals. 메이저놀이터
