Goffin beats Djokovic to reach Monte Carlo semifinals

This was Murray's only 2nd match after his return from a month out with an elbow injury.

Murray struggled to overcome Gilles Muller in the last 32 on Wednesday and after a inconsistent start, he took control of the first set against Ramos-Vinola racing away from 2-2 to take it 6-2.

The early evening light on the court was still bright enough to affect both players, with Goffin saying it was "a nuisance" when he was serving at 5-5 and Djokovic complaining that it was "almost unplayable" in the nail-biting 12th game. But the Spaniard rallied to set up a semi against Lucas Pouille of France, who beat Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay 6-0, 3-6, 7-5.

"I'm disappointed to lose from the position that I was in. That's why I always try to give extra effort to really make a good result in this tournament". "But yeah, I mean, maybe tomorrow or a day after I'll be able to look back a little bit and think where I'm at now from where I was a week ago".

"Then he obviously started playing better towards the end of the set".

Ramos-Vinolas won on his first match point when Cilic double-faulted.

Sky Sports' tennis expert and columnist Annabel Croft tips world number one Andy Murray to have more success going forward.

Fifth seed Marin Cilic advanced to the quarter finals with a straight sets victory over the Czech Tomas Berdych.

Murray was broken seven times during a see-saw encounter with the clay-court specialist and was leading 4-0 in the final set before he suffered a spectacular collapse.

Nadal dropped a set in the second round against Kyle Edmund but was ruthless as he dispatched another young gun, the 20-year-old Zverev who was reduced to trashing rackets in frustration against the Spaniard.

Djokovic claimed a 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 victory over Spain's Pablo CarreƱo Busta, while Goffin defeated Austrian sixth seed Dominic Thiem 7-6 (7-4), 4-6, 6-3.

Also advancing was Rafael Nadal, a nine-time champion in the Principality, with an impressively facile 6-1, 6-1 win over 14th seed Alexander Zverev.
