World No. 1 Novak Djokovic was defeated by Russian Aslan Karaditsev (28th) in the semi-finals of the “His” Championship in Belgrade on Saturday, leading him in three games. After defeating him untimely in the 8th race at Monaco, he was disappointed again.
Karadyshev will take part in the second final of the year on Sunday, and therefore avenge Djokovic, who completely eliminated him in the semifinals of the Australian Open, a match that showcased Russia to the public.
After a good start, Djokovic was very nervous and betrayed by his serve. He succumbed to his opponent three times and lost sensibly in the first set (7-5).
The Russians seem to be about to win two sets. After serving the Serbs for the fourth time, Djokovic finally reacted and achieved a balance of power, leading 4-2 for the second time.
But “Knoll” never appeared in one day, and continued to step on his tennis in the third set, wasting too many breakpoints and shooting percentages at important moments.
As far as he is concerned, Karatsev is full of passion and concentration. After more than three hours of the game, he ended the game. In the final, he will challenge the Italian Matteo Berrettini and the Japanese Taro Daniel in another semi-final. This is the qualification for “Lucky Sanshou”.
As a result, Djokovic started the season badly on clay, losing twice in a row, which made the Roma master and Roland Garros (Roland Garros) close he had no confidence.
