Djokovic looking for answers after Monte Carlo disappointment
Friday 21 April 2017 23:44
With his French Open title defence starting in five short weeks, Novak Djokovic is desperately searching for the key to lifting his game on clay. The former world number one, who was replaced at the top of the list last November by Andy Murray, joined his rival at the exit of the Monte Carlo Masters after losing a third-set break in a quarter-final defeat to Belgian David Goffin 6-2, 3-6, 7-5 on Friday. Djokovic, whose Australian Open title defence ended in a shock second round exit in January, said that he would not add to his schedule and will try to stick with the Madrid and Rome Masters events in May to complete his Grand Slam preparations for Paris.
