Nole beats Haider-Maurer in 56 minutes and gets into MonteCarlo QFs

Novak Djokovic cruised into the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters quarter-finals on Thursday, knocking out world no.52 Andreas Haider-Maurer (AUT) 6-4, 6-0 in just 56 minutes.


Novak looked comfortable on the court. He started well, breaking his rival in the opening game of the match. It was enough for the Serb to take the first set after 34 minutes of play.

Nole broke three times in the second set to seal the win in dominant fashion.


“I’ve played quite a lot of matches this year, so I don’t think I’m missing the competitive rhythm on the court; I actually feel confident. I’ve played and won a lot of matches this year, fortunately”, said Novak.

Novak will next meet Marin Cilic who defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in straight sets.

“I have Marin Cilic next, who is a Grand Slam winner, who is playing the tennis of his life… I look forward to that challenge. Obviously now it’s going to get tougher”, said Novak.
