Djokovic battles to quarterfinals
Fri, 20 Apr 2012 10:33a.m.
World number one Novak Djokovic raised his eyes and arms to the sky after beating Ukraine's Alexandr Dolgopolov to reach the Monte Carlo Masters quarter-finals just hours after learning of the death of his grandfather.
The Serb fought back to overcome his emotions and move past Dolgopolov 2-6 6-1 6-4.
He was crying as he left the court to thunderous applause from a packed crowd.
Djokovic learned of his grandfather's death while he was practicing that morning.
He had said how close he was to his grandfather, to whom he dedicated his victory in the recent Sony Ericsson Open in Miami.
