Donaldson confronts umpire in heated Monte Carlo exchange

Donaldson confronts umpire in heated Monte Carlo exchange

Shapovalov lost in straight sets to Stefanos Tsitsipas, 6-3, 6-4, ending his tournament at the Monte Carlo Masters in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, France.

MONACO (AP) - After easing into the second round of the Monte Carlo Masters on Monday, a relieved Novak Djokovic said his troublesome right elbow no longer bothers him.

"But today, you know, (I'm) pain-free". "I missed him. I have a feeling that he missed me or tennis or both", Djokovic said. I can remember before they met in one Wimbledon final asking Federer about Nadal's habit of slowing play down every time he gets in trouble, bouncing the ball forever before hitting his serve.

But tennis fans will be eyeing a fascinating quarter-final match-up between a revitalised Djokovic and the king of clay Nadal.

Novak Djokovic sent out a warning to his ATP World Tour rivals on Monday in his first match since reuniting with Marian Vajda, his coach from June 2006 to May 2017.

"I thought it was good considering the amount of matches I've played in the last nearly 12 months", Djokovic said after the match. "Then a few days later he says he will not play in one event, so there's a little bit of controversy with that." .

But when asked specifically about Agassi's decision to announce the split first - via an interview with ESPN that aired a fortnight ago - Djokovic played the issue down. So Indian Wells and Miami were really kind of a struggle on the court for me mentally. "I was questioning which way I want to move ahead", he said. "We're going to be seeing each other and still keep on being friends".

Tributes paid to One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest film-maker Milos Forman
The two-time Oscar victor passed away following a short illness, his third wife Martina confirmed to Czech news agency CTK . Married three times, Forman met his third wife Martina - a writer three decades his junior - in Prague in the 1990s.

Kei Nishikori came from a set down to oust 12th seed Tomas Berdych 4-6 6-2 6-1, while Milos Raonic also lost the opening set before seeing off wildcard Lucas Catarina. He broke the 12th-seeded Czech's serve six times and dropped his own twice. That injury had ruled him out of last year's U.S. Open and this year's Australian Open.

Lajovic played that way, especially in the first set.

Other winners included Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain, Andrey Rublev of Russian Federation, and Albert Ramos-Vinolas of Spain.

Elsewhere, Spanish duo Roberto Bautista Agut and Albert Ramos Vinolas were both impressive in two-set wins over Peter Gojowczyk and Jared Donaldson, respectively.

He then squared up to Gabas and shouted: "Yes it is, yeah it is", as he insisted his mark was right and the umpire's call of in was wrong.

Donaldson received a code violation.
