Cilic advances at Monte-Carlo Masters

BC-TEN-Monte Carlo Masters, 2nd Ld-Writethru, 513 Djokovic loses Dominic Thiem at Monte Carlo MastersEds: Updates throughout.

Court des Prince remained packed all afternoon, and quite rightly.

"It's a way better feeling if you go against him and know that you've beaten him already on this surface", Thiem said. That match is, in fact, their only encounter since May 2016, mostly due to the injury problems that Djokovic has suffered.

"It was a good victory - straight sets against a difficult opponent", said Nadal.

The Austrian eventually came through 5-7, 7-5, 7-5 in a thoroughly entertaining match, saving a match point to ensure he progressed into the last 16. Now, he will lock horns with Russi's Khachanov in his last-16 encounter. Being up at the crack of dawn, training without distraction, facing injuries with a brave face and recovering to fight for victory are scenes commonly associated with sportspersons. He lost 6-2 7-5 to Frenchman Richard Gasquet.

Thiem should provide a sterner test in the last eight, after the fifth seed came from a set down to beat Djokovic.

There were question-marks hanging over Thiem, however. The 10th match point did the trick with Coric sending a backhand long.

43 Sugita had won the only previous meeting between the pair on tour, but could only convert a single break point while giving up five against the 61st-ranked Struff at Monte Carlo Country Club.

"Last year at Roland Garros he [Thiem] beat me in straight sets".

Bedene managed to keep the second set on serve for six games, but Nadal broke to lead 4-3 and wrapped up a comfortable victory in the Monaco sunshine with another break as Bedene hit a forehand into the net.

The Spaniard altered four chances to accomplish on the.

In the seventh game, Ćorić broke Djokovic's service, which he also repeated in the 11th game.

Germany's Alexander Zverev recovered from a slow start to claim a 4-6 6-3 6-2 win over Gilles Müller of Luxembourg.

Djokovic now had his rhythm, his precision, his demanding angles, and outplayed Thiem in several long backhand exchanges. "To think about and talk about potentially a match-up with Nadal", Djokovic added. It gave him a break point, but Djokovic saved it with an ace.

Thiem, as Djokovic concedes, loves playing on the red dirt.

Then again, flying safely under the radar is one of the most dangerous places to encounter Nishikori.

"Ideally, I'd want to be playing the way I played for so many years, but that comes with time", Djokovic added. I played little bit better than yesterday. Thiem has never made the semifinals of the Monte Carlo Masters.
