With this, the Serb reached 77 semis and surpassed Rafael Nadal, who had 76. The dispute was not easy, the second set was full of ups and downs, but Djokovic achieved a 2-0 victory over Australian Alex de Minaur, 11th in the rankings. The partials of the match were 7/5 and 6/4.

The clay floor and the competition at sea level, which makes the ball even slower, did not faze the world number 1. Djokovic had a consistent match, taking the first set 7/5 and the second, slightly more difficult, 6/4.

The match had 6 breaks of serve in a row between the second game and the seventh, demonstrating the exhaustion of the opponents. De Minaur confirmed in the eighth, and Djoko did the same in the ninth. Undeterred, he scored a new break and closed the game.

The last time Novak Djokovic reached the semifinals in Monte Carlo was in 2015. Two games away from winning the championship and without a set lost, now is his chance to win the Triple Career Golden Masters.
