The start of this season has not been easy for Novak Djokovic. He did not play in the Australian Open due to confusion over not being vaccinated against the corona virus, after which he suffered an unexpected defeat. He came to Paris built with his first competitive victory in Rome.
Thus, the Serbian players waited until the second half of May for the first match of the year at the Grand Slam. Number one player Djokovic’s opponent is the ambitious and energetic Yoshihado Nishioka. A tennis player from the Balkans was a favorite, and he gradually lost any hope of surprising his opponent.
In the first set, Djokovic allowed the Japanese to win three games. Over time, he gained momentum, delivered more and more extensive plays and provoked more and more of Nishioka’s mistakes. The second game ended 6: 1 and the third game 6: 0. The depressed Nishioka is less likely to speak in court. Djokovic showed the class and was promoted in two hours.

On Monday, the open field matches were interrupted twice. First in the afternoon and then in the evening. Kamil Majjrsak, one of the players who was chased by the rain, had already bid farewell to the singles competition. Hubert Hurkacz will start on Tuesday.
