Fabio Fognini pulled off a stunner on Saturday, ousting 11-time champ and No. 2 seed Rafael Nadal 6-4, 6-2 in the semifinals of the Monte Carlo Masters at Monaco.

The 13th-seeded Italian reached the first Masters 1000 level final of his career with the victory.

Nadal hadn't lost in 18 matches in the event.

"I probably played one of the worst matches on clay in 14 years," said Nadal. "When that happens, you have to lose. And today I deserved to lose because I played against a player that was better than me today."

Roger Federer defeated Daniil Medvedev 6-4 6-2 to book his spot in the quarter-finals at the 2019 Miami Open.

With 17 match wins, no player has had more success this year than the lanky Russian but Medvedev had no answers for a rampaging Federer, who needed just 61 minutes to reach the last eight, where he will take on towering sixth-seeded South African Kevin Anderson.

Novak Djokovic beat Daniil Medvedev 6-4 6-7(5) 6-2 6-3 to reach his 10th quarter-final at Melbourne Park.

The night after Roger Federer was stunned by Greek tyro Stefanos Tsitsipas, there was another sniff of an upset at Rod Laver Arena as 22-year-old Medvedev rocked the Serb with a furious assault of power hitting.

Yet the Russian wearied in the constant attrition during Monday's fourth round match, and top seed Djokovic ended up cruising to victory soon after midnight, having passed easily his biggest test at what had been a sweat-free tournament.
