Dan Evans shocks world No 1 Novak Djokovic at Monte Carlo Masters

Britain’s Dan Evans produced the biggest win of his career by inflicting the first defeat of the year on world No 1 Novak Djokovic at the Monte Carlo Masters on Thursday.

Evans, whose first-round win was his first on clay at tour level for four years, had never beaten a top-six player but he put on a brilliant performance against Djokovic to win 6-4 7-5.

Djokovic, a 2013 and 2015 champion at the Monte-Carlo Country Club, saw his perfect 10-0 start to the year come to an end following a below-par performance by his high standards.
