World number one Novak Djokovic took out his frustration on the racket in a scrappy performance but did enough to overcome German Philipp Kohlschreiber in a 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 win in the second round of the Monte Carlo Masters on Tuesday.
The world no. 1 could not control his temper during a freakish string of eight straight breaks of serve in the second set and was booed by the crowd when he took his anger out on his racquet at 2-4 down, repeatedly smashing it against the clay.
Djokovic double-faulted eight times and needed five match points to beat Kohlschreiber, who lost eight of their previous 10 matches but secured a rare win in the third round at Indian Wells last month. Midway through that, Djokovic needed treatment for a couple of minutes on his right thumb. He appeared to hurt it while sliding at the baseline during the fifth game.
Novak Djokovic celebrates his victory. "It was pretty rusty, but a win is a win".
On the third break point opportunity for Kohlschreiber, Djokovic inexplicably hit a backhand volley wide to put his opponent 4-2 ahead.

"Far from that", Djokovic said.
