Novak Djokovic claims that it has been an emotional week for him following his Monte Carlo Masters final defeat to Rafael Nadal.

Novak Djokovic has said that it has been an emotional week for him following his Monte Carlo Masters final defeat to Rafael Nadal.

Djokovic, who went down 6-3 6-1, missed his grandfather's funeral on Saturday having learned of his death earlier in the week.

Despite the personal loss, the Serbian believed that he had given a good account of himself during the tournament week.

"I definitely don't want to take away anything from Rafa's win, but it's a fact that I didn't have any emotional energy left in me," said the world number one.

"I just wasn't there. I've never been caught up in this kind of emotional situation before. It's been a very difficult week for me to go through mentally. I won three matches since the news. I mean, I think I did pretty well."

The defeat was Djokovic's third loss of the season.
