“I must confess that he was not the Spaniard I expected in the final,” tournament director Zeljko Franulovic said, noting that 11-time winner Rafael Nadal was unable to compete in Monte Carlo due to a rib ailment.

Davidovich Fokina defeated Indian Wells winner Taylor Fritz in the quarterfinals and Grigor Dimitrov in the semifinals, in addition to Djokovic.

The event was a “wonderful experience,” the 22-year-old Spaniard remarked.

It had boosted Davidovich Fokina’s confidence for the rest of the season, he claimed.

“I don’t know if I’ll win another match,” Davidovich Fokina said, “but I’ll be focused on every point, every game.”

After the coronavirus halted the 2020 edition and forced the 2021 tournament to be held without spectators, Tsitsipas was overjoyed by the boisterous crowd.

“Having people involved is definitely more nerve-wracking because you have fans yelling and chanting, but it was a terrific way to finish it off with lots of battling in the end,” Tsitsipas said. “He fought at times when I didn’t expect him to.”
