Monte Carlo Tennis Club

Djokovic sans partage

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic carved out another slice of history on Sunday at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters as he defeated Tomas Berdych 7-5, 4-6, 6-3 in the final.

Victory sees Djokovic extend his winning streak to 17 matches in 2015, and become the first player to sweep the opening three ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events of a season.

The 27 year old entered Monte-Carlo on the back of completing the Indian Wells-Miami double for a third time and leaves the Principality with 23 Masters 1000 trophies, drawing level with Roger Federer for second on the titles list.

“I thought I won this match with my heart and with battle, ” said Djokovic. “That’s how I feel like I won it. I don’t think I’ve played on the level that I wish to play and that I have played throughout the whole week. But also credit to Tomas, because he has played very aggressively, staying close to the line, pushing me back. So I had to defend a lot of times.

“Obviously I was just trying to stay with the right intensity and focus for each point because obviously you get tense when you’re not feeling so comfortable on the court, when you start missing, you kind of back up. I had to adjust my position and movement on the court several times.

“In the end I’m sitting here with this trophy that is very special to me, of course. This is what matters. Sometimes winning ugly is necessary. It’s been a remarkable start of the season for me. Of course, couldn’t ask for a better start of clay court season.

“The fact that I live here and that I practise in this very court where I played the match today, that kept me going, and of course the fact that we are fighting for a big title. I’m just thrilled that I was able to make that final step.”

The Belgrade native lifted the trophy at the Monte-Carlo Country Club for the second time in four final appearances. After finishing runner-up to Rafael Nadal in the 2009 and 2012 title matches, Djokovic triumphed in 2013 with victory over Nadal. He has a 28-7 record at the tournament.

Djokovic went into the final having won 18 of his previous 20 meetings with Berdych, but the Czech pushed Djokovic all the way in a rain-hit finale.
