Djokovic continued with excellent matches this season, and he reached the 52nd title in his career and the fourth triumph this season after 2 hours and 45 minutes into the game, Tanjug said.
The Serbian tennis player thus became the only player who managed to win the first three Masters tournaments in one season after he previously triumphed at the tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami.
Djokovic scored the 23rd title at the Masters 1000 tournaments and evened the score with Switzerland's Roger Federer who currently occupies the second place on the list, thus getting closer to Rafael Nadal of Spain who holds the first place on the eternal list (27).
This is the second title Djokovic has claimed at the Monte Carlo tournaments after the 2013 triumph.
