Djokovic French Open Plans in Disarray
No one expected what happened on Tuesday afternoon as world number one, Novak Djokovic, crashed out early at the Madrid Open with a defeat that casts his chances of winning the Roland Garros crown this summer into serious doubt.
Djokovic lost in the second round on clay 7-6 6-7 6-3 to Bulgaria’s Gregor Dimitrov, who had not earned a set over the Serb in their previous two meetings.
Yet the 21-year-old did not let history repeat itself and after saving set point at 5-4 down in the first careered to an early lead before finishing Djokovic off in the last.
The result shocked many sports betting news reporters simply because Djokovic was on course to win this title after recovering from an ankle injury to win the Monte Carlo crown.
