Monfils did not show up and Djokovic advanced without playing

The tickets were sold out and the Parisians were waiting to see the number one in the world against a local figure. But they will be left with the desire. Because Gael Monfils (22nd in the world ranking) did not appear and Novak Djokovic (1st) advanced, without playing, to the quarterfinals of the Masters 1000 of Paris.

After his triumphant debut against the Hungarian Marton Fucsovics (40th) by 6-2, 4-6 and 6-3, the 85 times ATP-level champion awaits the winner of the duel between Cameron Norrie and Taylor Fritz.

Monfils had suffered a fall in the dawn of the duel against Adrian Mannarino but managed to recover. However, in a post-match press conference he warned that the doctors’ advice was not to play so as not to aggravate his injury.

It should be remembered that the Belgrade-born, with only one match played in the last 50 days, plays the tournament for the fifteenth time, which he raised in five editions (2009, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2019).
