Serbia's Novak Djokovic (2R, UP) and Russia's Daniil Medvedev shake hands at the end of the quarter final tennis match on the day 7 of the Monte-Carlo ATP Masters Series tournament on April 19, 2019 in Monaco.
Earlier, World number one Novak Djokovic's French Open preparations were dealt with a blow as he suffered a 6-3 4-6 6-2 defeat by Russian Daniil Medvedev in the quarter-finals Friday.
Medvedev had lost each of his previous three clashes with Djokovic but he broke his Serbian opponent's serve five times to move into the final four.
The 31-year-old has struggled for rhythm in his first clay court event of the season and will need step up his game to have a chance of completing a personal sweep at next month's French Open by lifting his fourth straight Grand Slam title.
Despite showing real form on clay, Medvedev was an outside bet against Djokovic with many expecting the world No 1 to meet tournament favourite Rafael Nadal in the final.
