Novak Djokovic was swept away by the Italian “lucky loser” Lorenzo Sonego (ATP 42) 6-2 6-1 in 70 minutes, in the quarter-finals of the tournament in Vienna.
This is only the second racket defeat in hand of the world no.1 this season after the one suffered in the Roland-Garros final 3 weeks ago. The 33-year-old Serb also lost to disqualification at the US Open.
Djokovic’s last defeat against a player ranked so low dates back more than 2 years: in the spring of 2018, he was beaten in the quarterfinals of Roland-Garros by another Italian, Marco Cecchinato, then ranked 72nd.
Remembering 2005 in Melbourne
It is also the second heaviest loss of “Nole” career. In 2005, at 17, he had also only scored 3 games, in a winning 3-set match. Marat Safin had indeed beaten Djokovic 6-1 6-1 6-1 in the 1st round of the Australian Open.
