Dubai, United Arab Emirates | ATP 500 | Hard

Without a doubt the biggest talking point of the ATP Tour was the upset of Novak Djokovic, with Czech qualifier Jiri Vesely remaining undefeated against the top seed, and moving to a 2-0 head-to-head record to match that of Australian Nick Kyrgios. Vesely ousted Djokovic in straight sets to not only knock the Serb out of the tournament, but also the number one position. It is the first time in 361 weeks that from Monday, Djokovic will not hold the ranking.

“It is an amazing feeling,” Vesely said post-match. “I never really thought I would have a chance against Novak. He is one of the greatest of all time. After the past 12 months, it is unbelievable. I have so many emotions inside. It is hard to describe. It is an amazing feeling.

“Playing against Novak, he is such a great groundstroke player. “He moves really well. “You really have to earn it and fight for every single point. I think I did an amazing job today. I tried to keep the rallies short. “Of course Novak had huge support. “I love these matches playing against the best players in the world. “Having full stadiums is something I have dreamt about my whole life. ”

Vesely will now take on Canadian Denis Shapovalov in the semi-finals, following the rising Canadian’s straight sets win over Lithuanian qualifier, Ricardas Berankis.
