Sport: Djokovic has won the tournament six times, but in this year’s edition there was an early return home. The Serb had no chance and lost 2-6, 3-6 to 32nd-ranked Tabilo. The Canadian-born Chilean has one title on the ATP tour. It arrived in New Zealand’s Auckland in January.

On Sunday, he had a meeting with tennis’ giants, and in Rome he knocked Djokovic off the court. He took just 68 minutes to send the Serb home.

Tabilo has only once before reached the fourth round of a Masters1000 tournament. He will meet Karen Khatsjanov in the next phase.

Djokovic will shortly be playing for his 25th Grand Slam title at Roland-Garros.
