Novak Djokovic has reached the second round without much difficulty at the grand slam tournament in Paris. The first-placed Serbian settled in about an hour and a half with the Swede Mikael Ymer: 6-0 6-2 6-3.
Serbian number 1 in the world had a lightning start against the 22-year-old number 80 of the global list from Sweden.
In 22 minutes he batted in the first set 6-0. In the third set, the Swede was able to resist a bit more, but the Serb won convincingly with 6-3.
Djokovic won Roland Garros once, in 2016, but has since been unable to make it to the final.
At his last grand slam tournament, the US Open, he was disqualified in his fourth-round match after inadvertently knocking a ball into the throat of a line judge out of sheer frustration at a lost game.
Djokovic made his return to the Master’s tournament in Rome, which he subsequently won.
Djokovic meets Ricardas Berankis in the second round. The 30-year-old tennis player from Lithuania defeated Hugo Dellien from Bolivia.
