Novak Djokovic takes to the court before his match against Marton Fucsovics at the Masters 1,000 in Paris.

Novak Djokovic is already in the quarterfinals of the Masters 1,000 in Paris … without having to play a minute against the Frenchman Gael Monfils, his rival in the round of 16, who decided to leave due to injury before the game.

Monfils himself revealed at a press conference that he would not play his match against Djokovic due to an adductor injury. It should be noted that Djokovic was one of the worst possible rivals for Monfils in the draw, as the Serbian dominates the face-to-face between the two by a resounding 17-0.

In this way Djokovic goes to the quarterfinals of the Masters 1,000 in Paris, where he will face the American Taylor Fritz, who defeated Briton Cameron Norrie 6-3, 7-6 (3). The Serbian is already focused on the individual table after this Wednesday he fell in the second round of the doubles with Filip Krajinovic against the pair formed by John Peers and Filip Polasek by 7-6 (2) and 6-4.
