French Open: Djokovic wins his opener match

Novak Djokovic

Top seed Novak Djokovic got his quest for an 18th Grand Slam title back with his victory at the French Open opener match. He commenced his French Open campaign with a drama-free 6-0, 6-2, 6-3 victory over Mikael Ymer on Tuesday.

About a month ago, Djokovic faced disqualification in the US Open fourth round because he hit a line judge with a ball.

In the women’s section, Czech second seed Karolina Pliskova managed to rein in her errors. She found a way past battling Egyptian qualifier Mayar Sherif with a 6-7(9), 6-2, 6-4 victory.

Australian Open champion Sofia Kenin made a strong start against unseeded Russian Ludmilla Samsonova. She lost momentum after a rain delay. However, the fourth seed recovered to seal a 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 victory.
