Novak Djokovic reacts to shock Madrid Open exit to Kyle Edmund

Kyle Edmund weighs up if clay will work in his favour against Novak Djokovic

There are positives to take out from this, but [it's] obviously disappointing to go out early in the tournament.

Djokovic lost in the third round in Monte Carlo and in the second round in both Miami and Indian Wells.

The Yorkshireman, now ranked at 22, won in just an hour and 12 minutes.

Rafael Nadal, who has had a tremendous rivalry against Djokovic said that he is certain that the Serb will bounce back, very soon. "It's something I have to accept, I have to embrace".

A big difference this year for Edmund has been his performances against the best players.

"Pleased with the way my game's developing, that I'm able to beat a player like that. Even though they know my game very well, it's still a process".

AT&T calls paying Trump lawyer Michael Cohen 'a big mistake'
The payment to Clifford was the first known activity involving Essential Consultants, a shell company incorporated in DE by Cohen. AT&T declined to comment on the documents, which were provided to The Post anonymously, but did not challenge their authenticity.

'It's only the quarter-finals, there are so many good players so it's a tough question, ' Goffin added. After suffering a defeat in the Round of 16 of Australian Open 2018, the world number 12 even underwent a "small medical intervention" on his elbow in a bid to return to the top.

Marching straight into press following his three-set defeat at the hands of British No. 1 Kyle Edmund, Novak Djokovic is still searching for that run of matches that will start to give him the match-play confidence he needs as the second Slam of the year approaches.

'I'm not happy. I just was feeling ok but the conditions was not great and I was focused on it and I'm a little bit angry on myself now.

"At the same time, nobody is forcing me to play this sport". I want to do it.

"So, you know, that's where I draw my strength. As long as I keep going, as long as I love the sport, I'll keep going".

Edmund will certainly represent an entirely different proposition to the version Goffin faced three years ago in the pair's only meeting.

PDP Commends Ekiti Governorship Aspirants, Delegates For Good Conduct
The election was conducted peacefully and transparently, with both aspirants pledging to accept the outcome of the exercise. Whether they like it or not, we shall give them another 16-0 again with the support of Ekiti people.

"I don't have any doubt that he's going to be back up at the highest level".

'What Novak did on this sport is incredible.

Nadal went up a break at 4-2 in the first set after back-to-back errors by Schwartzman, including a missed smash.

Djokovic is scheduled to be in action at the Rome Masters next week. For Novak Djokovic, he had reiterated the positive influence of accumulating more matches under his belt, but with this defeat, he has failed to defend his semifinal points from previous year. "Then I had to do surgery".

He said, after his match: "There are obvious things that are not working well for me". I've had niggles and stuff for a few weeks but mentally it's obviously frustrating, just wanting to play and doing as much work as you can. And that's something also that makes me fortunate, you know, to play the sport.
