Novak Djokovic crashed out in his opening match at the Monte Carlo Masters on Tuesday as the world No 1 played in just his second tournament of the year following his refusal to get vaccinated against Covid-19.

Djokovic lost 6-3, 6-7 (5/7), 6-1 to 46th-ranked Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in the second round after dropping his serve nine times.

The Serb’s only other appearance in 2022 was in Dubai in February where he played just three matches.

Djokovic admitted his absence from most events had been “difficult, mentally and emotionally” but said he was “moving on” ahead of his return at a tournament he won in 2013 and 2015.
