Gael Monfils describes Novak Djokovic as 'perfect' after being defeated by the Serbian in the Rogers Cup.

Gael Monfils believes that he did all he could to defeat Novak Djokovic in the quarter-final of the Rogers Cup.

The French number one claimed just three games as Djokovic advanced to the semi-finals with a 6-2 6-1 victory in Montreal.

"[Djokovic] was not missing at all. I was gaining no free points on my serve," Monfils told reporters.

"He was certainly the best Novak I have ever met. He was always perfect, perfect, perfect."

Djokovic has now won all seven meetings between the two players.
