Comfortable wins for Djokovic, Nadal at French Open

29 May 2017

"Andre has left already".

"Last year, I won here for the first time, it was really a special moment for me on the court, an important moment of my career, I'll never forget this feeling", Djokovic said, speaking in French.

Djokovic dropped his serve four times and required nine set points to claim the second set against a player who had only won 10 games in their previous three encounters.

Djokovic, who lost his No. 1 ranking to Murray past year, has hired Agassi as part of his bid to win Roland-Garros and become the first man in the Open era to win each of the four majors twice.

"It is an incredible honor and good luck to have him with me on the team", Djokovic said.

Castroneves was disappointed to fall short of the four-time winners club - particularly since it was his third runner-up finish. This time it is with Sato, who joined the team just this season and had largely been overlooked at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Djokovic faces either compatriot Janko Tipsarevic or Portugal's Joao Sousa for a place in the last 32.

10 - Rafael Nadal is bidding for his 10th Roland Garros title.

Muguruza's sharp movement and strong serve are well suited to Roland Garros, where previous year she played the best tennis of her career. "Not only that but Francesca is a legend and I was very excited to play on Philippe Chatrier court with her", said Muguruza. Simona Halep, the runner-up in 2014 and maybe the best current player without a major trophy, has been playing well on clay, but she tore a ligament in her right ankle recently.

Steve Johnson of the United States held off a valiant comeback from Yuichi Sugita to reach the second round of the French Open when their match resumed at Roland Garros.

Raonic, whose best run at the French Open came when he made the 2014 quarter-finals, fired 15 aces and 44 winners to book a meeting with Mikhail Youzhny of Russian Federation or Brazil's Rogerio Dutra Silva.

Raonic took just 92 minutes to beat the 38th-ranked Darcis 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 - taking the final game to love.

The fourth-seeded Muguruza won 15 points in a row from being up 3-2 in the first set and broke her Italian opponent five times.

Anisimova clawed her way back from 4-1 down in the decider but Nara clinched the victory on her first match point when her opponent hit a forehand wide.

Garbine Muguruza and Novak Djokovic will start the defense of their titles at the French Open on Monday. Muguruza was up a break and led 3-2 when the match was stopped. "That's the way I approach it", said Djokovic.
