Djokovic defeated Alex Diminor (11th place, Australia) 2-0 (7-5 ​​6-4) in the singles quarterfinals on the 6th day of the tournament held in Monte Carlo, Monaco on the 13th (Korean time).

Djokovic, who returned to the semifinals of this tournament for the first time in 9 years since 2015, will face Kasper Ruud (10th place, Norway) in the semifinals.

Since winning this tournament in 2015, Djokovic has participated every year except for 2020, when the tournament was canceled due to the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19), but has never made it into the semifinals.

Djokovic, who this week maintained his world No. 1 status at the age of 36 years and 11 months, becoming the oldest person ever to be ranked No. 1 in the world, also set a record for being the oldest person to advance to the semifinals of the singles tournament.

He also advanced to the semifinals of the Masters 1000 Series competition for the 77th time, setting the record for the most in this category.

In addition to Djokovic, Rafael Nadal (Spain) reached the semifinals of the Masters 1000 series competition 76 times.

Djokovic, who was eliminated in the semifinals of the Australian Open, the first major tournament of the year, will challenge for his first win of the season in this tournament held on clay courts.

The semifinals of this tournament were condensed into the match between Djokovic-Ruud, Jannik Sinner (2nd place, Italy) and Stefanos Tsitsipas (12th place, Greece). 스포츠토토
