Novak Djokovic set to face Gael Monfils in Eastbourne final

Djokovic cruises past Medvedev to reach Eastbourne final

Novak Djokovic once again wrapped up a 6-3 6-4 victory over the Frenchman he consistently gets the better of.

Roger Federer begins his bid for an eighth title against Alexandr Dolgopolov, while Nadal will open against John Millman and second seed Novak Djokovic starts against Martin Klizan.

World No. 2 Novak Djokovic has made his way into the final of the Aegon International, following a straight sets victory over Daniil Medvedev of Russian Federation.

Djokovic has not dropped a single set at Eastbourne. I will not rule out coming back to Eastbourne next year or the following years.

"Obviously it feels right, looking back on the decision-making process and whether or not I should come here, now it feels like it was a good decision", said the Serb after capturing his second title of 2017, and first since January. We played for the 14th time and it's 14-0.

However, on Saturday just as throughout the week at a tournament whose organisers were delighted to offer him a wild card to compete, the 30-year-old seemed rejuvenated by the bracing English seaside air.

A positive Djokovic charged to the net to volley a victor for a hold in the opening game of the second set after Monfils had his first two break points of the match.

Monfils and Djokovic both cover great ground from behind the baseline and both are fantastic at making their opponent make that extra ball, but Djokovic is also better than Monfils in that department. "So for a change it's good to not be one of the top favourites", said Djokovic.

The former world number one is rebuilding for Wimbledon after a poor past year by his world-class standards and is pointing toward the grass-court major as an immediate goal. He was very talented but was very unfortunate with injuries and illnesses that ended his career early.
