Roland Garros R1: [1] Djokovic def. Starace 7-6(3) 6-3 6-1

Very routine after a shaky first set. Never had to get out of second gear, got a lot better as the match went on. Potito got tired after the first set and a half but definitely gave a great account of himself the first half of the match, showed he does still have some game left.

Re: Roland Garros R1: [1] Djokovic def. Starace 7-6(3) 6-3 6-1

Very clean match by both. Starace played surprisingly well.

Novak with 39 winners to 19 UEs and Starace with 25 winners to 27 UEs.

Novak being very bold on the returns; they either hit the line or just beyond it (when making and missing)

Great stats!
And some people say Djokovic doesn't hit many winners.

Not as fast as Roger but routine. Starace wouldn't win the first set tb even if he had 5-1...

Nole was terrible in the crucial points of the first set but slowly improved as the match progressed.

Novak Djokovic
The GREATEST Australian Open Champion in HISTORY

Andre Agassi • Mario Ancic

Thank you for everything, Sir Alex Ferguson!

Despite the good stats, Novak didn't play that good. He was very shaky, I fear for his back (his smashs were very soft)

Please point me to a time when Djokovic was consistently hitting confident, hard overheads.
