Novak Djokovic experienced a surprising defeat to Alejandro Tabilo in Rome after a head injury affected his performance. Tabilo, a rising tennis player, was in excellent form and managed to secure a notable victory against the 24-time Grand Slam champion. Djokovic, who recently parted ways with his long-time coach Goran Ivanisevic and fitness coach Marco Panichi, appeared slightly off pace on the court.

Tabilo, coming off a recent ATP Challenger win, displayed strong left-handed serves and powerful groundstrokes that put pressure on Djokovic from the start. Despite Djokovic’s efforts to make a comeback, Tabilo’s solid serving and shot-making skills proved to be too much for him to handle. Tabilo’s dominance on serve helped him secure the match in straight sets.

Djokovic tried to challenge Tabilo but was unable to break his serve consistently. The match ended with Djokovic making uncharacteristic errors, leading to a match point for Tabilo, who ultimately emerged victorious. Tabilo’s next opponent will be Karen Khachanov as he aims to advance to his first-ever Masters 1000 quarterfinal. The surprising outcome left fans and spectators in disbelief at Djokovic’s unexpected defeat due to a head injury.
