Djokovic dismantled


Novak Djokovic has been knocked out sensationa­lly in the third round of the Monte Carlo Masters, seeing his unbeaten season’s record evaporate when hewas ‘‘dismantled’’ by Britain’s Dan Evans. Evans had never beaten a top-six player before but put on a brilliant performanc­e against a below-par Djokovic to win 6-4 7-5. Rafael Nadal had no such problems later, breezing past Grigor Dimitrov 6-1 6-1 to reach the quarterfin­als of a tournament he has won a record 11 times.
